Hi. Noobie here.
I got a Jet JJ-6CS and took it apart to clean the gunk and junk and found the two gibs (how do you pronounce that?) to be galled and sort of icky so I ordered two new ones from ereplacement.
When I got the replacement parts, they were/are different than the OEM gibs I found in the planer; the “new” parts had a sort of “v” groove in one side while the original parts were/are solid pieces of [steel?]. Also, all the gibs have what looks like the beginning of where someone started to drill a hole in one end, like maybe where one of the hex screws fit?
Anyone have any ideas about the efficacy of the new parts and/or can ‘splain to me this whole hole business?
[Oh, I’m planning to lubricate the ways prior to reassembly with spray DRY silicone. Thoughts?]
Thanks in advance.
