« Part 14: stripped threads repaired & wings sanded Part 15 of Jet cabinet saw re-hab series Part 16: Time to think about the extension table »

Randy wants pics… so here they are…. not overly exciting at this phase of the game….

220v 15amp outlet (dedicated circuit wired with 12-2 Romex)

Dust Collector motor starter relocated…

better than where it used to be…

These are by request for Phil, who has the same saw…

The door has two hooks at the bottom and a rotating cam latch on top

The rails and fence cleaned up pretty well….

Not sure if it’s worth the effort to paint to match the guide tube or not.

Any well reasoned recommendations are welcome.

4 days gone by since ordering link belt from HF…. still no notice that they have shipped :^(

How hard will it be to add the third belt after the top is mounted and alligned?

I don’t want to wait if I don’t have too.

Now I SEE what you were up to!!!
hanks for the pics.
Rather than move the start switch, I got the Long Ranger, for my HF 2HP DC. Makes it so much easier!!!

No reason that you HAVE to paint to match. You may find a color that matches “close enough”, or I’d recomend white. But that is a personal decision for you to make.

Looking good. Looking forward to seeing the first cuts!!!

Thanks for the door pics!

I think you could slip it on from the side with the motor cover off.

Does the cabinet itself have a rolled edge at the door or a cut edge? Mine is cut.

Mine also has a cut edge, and the door has no gasket at all.

After staring at these pics, I’m contemplating pairing the entire saw white….... What a stinky pita that would be to do though.

The Grizzly DC is 220 v and the 220 v version of the Long Ranger ain’t cheap.
