Hello Group, I recently acquired a 1991 Jet 15” planer. After changing the gear box fluid and cleaning the light rust off the table I looked to grease the lead screws. This is when I found the reason for the heavy drag when trying to raise the table. One of the lead screw nuts that hold the table in place is broken. Also, one of the lead screws was bent pretty good. I’ve got the parts the parts but I’m having a hard time with the disassembly, install and then alignment of these parts. I can only glean so much from the user manual. What I was hoping to find was a shop repair manual. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Kyle
