Does anyone else have the Kreg Foreman Machine that could look at theirs and answer my question?

Is the control arm (handle) brackets welded to the cross bar in the back? My handle is now pivoting on that bar. My guess about the welds is the paint has not broken.

Simple fix if that is the case. Little wire brushing/dremeling and tack weld it back together.

It has been a good machine, bought it 7 years ago and it has been put through the paces at the school shop also for the past 3 years. Probably will look at an automatic machine to replace it. I keep hoping to find one used. I know, good luck on that one.

Thanks for the input.

Pulled out the wire welder. That seemed to do the trick.

Have your say...
