I just picked up an older Jet contractors saw. Blue green in color. I need a set of legs as the set that came with it have been cut down to make the saw shorter. I’ve seen the white Jet legs and I think they would fit just fiine.
It is also missing a cast iron wing. 10” X 27” that mounts with 3 bolts.
Anybody got any of these out there?
Powermatic, Delta and other brands of contractors saws may fit.
Im in central OH
Plus these parts could be shipped UPS.
Thanks!!

Jeter – Im interested but new to the site so I can’t PM yet. Could I get a picture especially of the underside where the mounting holes are? Hopefully 3 but I can drill if it’s a different pattern.
Thanks!

Why not forget the set of legs and build a saw cabinet ? Also…..instead of replacing the cast iron wings, why not build your left and right outfeed tables out of laminayed MDF? There are a bunch of saw cabinets on here, and different styles to choose from…I re-built my old Craftsman contractor saw this way a good while back, and it works great…..saves on paying for shippin, which will cost a good chunk of change…..take a look at mine, then look on here for others, as well…Building it yourself will save lots of headaches and you’ll appreciate it a lot more knowing that you built it…..... here’s mine…..

I have two Jet cast iron wings that I haven’t used yet. I’d be willing to sell it for what I paid for which I can’t remember so I’d have to check. Let me know if you want me to figure out what I paid (I think it was $100 each) of course plus shipping. just let me know if you want to look into it further. The Jet ones have a miter slot cut into it.

I’ve got a similar saw and I put a benchdog router table on one side and a blank cast iron plate on the other. Both had to be drilled to fit my table, unfortunately. BEWARE though, it makes the table VERY heavy and with the narrow stand footprint, the saw is liable to tip. I know this because it tipped onto me. It hurt, too. I put a floor anchor into the non-router lighter side and bolted the wing to the floor via a chain and quick disconnect.

Bertha, great point on being safe with that heavy table. I’m having difficulty finding a cast iron extension wing with out a router insert in it.
Where did you find one? Thanks! RicklesssssS in Oregon

I had several people contact me with wings from various brand saws. Only a few of the holes lined up with my table so I had to drill. It all went very smoothly. Easier than I thought. Now the table is very steady! I love the large cast iron work surface. Very smooth & solid. The table does not vibrate at all nor does it want to tip.
I would post a fresh ad saying your looking for CI wings
