I’m borrowing a friends very old Dewalt 10” “Power Miter Box” saw which has a 1 1/8 MDF table that is pretty eaten up over the years. This thing is probably from the early – mid 1980s. I thought it would be a nice gesture to replace that for him before I return the saw to him.
None of the replacement parts websites have this thing anymore, so I am looking to make one. Its about 5” wide and about 18 to 24” long.
Where do you find MDF like that? Certainly not the big box stores. I don’t need a whole sheet, just a small piece. I am pretty sure I couldn’t even lift a full sheet.
Even some cut-offs would be good. Although a larger sheet that I could turn into a router table would be nice too…
