Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw part wanted

Greetings all! I have a Jet contractors saw I purchased back in the late 90’s. Stupidly, I did not get the cast iron wings when they were available. I did purchase an accufence (edit – Accusquare) and router table add on (which was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made!) so I really only need one for the left side of the saw.

I recently purchased the Incra Miter 5000 and I’m thinking I really want to have a truly solid surface on that side of the saw now, but after contacting Jet customer support, they only have replacement stamped metal wings, the cast iron wings have been discontinued. I’ve scoured the internet looking for one but can’t seem to find it anywhere.

So if anyone here has a wing they’d be willing to share or if someone knows of an after market part that would work, please let me know.

Model – JWTS-10
Stock – 708471 (this apparently did matter as there were different stock models)

Thanks all!!

Is that a 27 inch deep top? Seems like I remember someone blolting up a stock delta wing to one. If so ebay will have a few I would bet. Good luck JB

I think several places (benchdog is one, if I recall) sell cast iron extensions that have router table inserts in them – maybe that would be an option for you?

my Delta contractor saw has the stamped wings, too…

Well, i read too fast and just noticed you have a router extension already…

I have a Delta wing I need to find a home for – I replaced it with a shop-made router table, and I don’t think I’ll ever go back. It’s 27” and fits a Contractor saw, but I think the holes are fairly standard even across brands.

Just measured and it’s 27 and just shy of an eighth of an inch. I’m not sure if it needs to be exact?

Jet has the parts for replacement but it is too expense, 350$ for 2 plus shipping fee.

I have two unisaw wings I’ll give you. However there would be shipping involved.

Likewise, if your not stuck on cast, I have a stamped jet steel wing that came off my proshop that you could have. I ordered cast but they sent both.

I have the Jet JWTS-10, #708471 saw. I put a BenchDog router wing on the left side and I put a Sawstop cast wing on the right (required drilling a few new holes).

I realize this is a VERY old post but…...I have the same issue. I’m in need of one (at minimum) or two cast iron wings for a Jet Contractors Saw circa 2000. Does anyone know of a source, or someone that has one (or two) that they would part with.

You should be able to make just about any 27” deep cast iron wings work….some drilling might be required. The wings from a similar style GI, PM, Bridgewood, Woodtek, Grizzly, or Shop Fox saw could be direct bolt-ons. You could always try Jet for an exact match. You could also try Saw Stop for a less exact match that might require drilling.

@knottscott,
Thanks, I think I’ve heard that in the past but for some reason never acted on it. I’ll try now.

@nadiboris, I don’t know what you’re smoking but do you have any to share with the group?
