The used JTAS-10XL I just picked up is lacking both the table extensions (wings). The guy I got it from had the saw built into a large, outfeed table and the existing wings had long left the building. With my new setup, I find myself needing those pieces and was wondering what was out there that I might look at. I’ve heard other mfgs. wings will also fit the Jet, but does anyone have some firsthand knowledge they can share? Most of the ads I’ve seen are less than helpful… Thanks!

Have ya checked with Jet for a price? At least that will give ya a starting point for refference.
Grizzly wings might fit with some minor drilling.

Yes, I checked and it wasn’t pretty. The two extensions will run me almost $600 (shipped), which is $100 more than I paid for the whole saw! I can safely rule that option out. I may end up building my own wings, but I’d sure like the additional mass of the cast iron.

Nearly any 27” deep cast iron wing can be made to fit. Some will bolt directly, others will need some drilling, but cast iron drills easily.

Thanks, that verifies what I suspected. The Craftsman extensions have 4 bolts, but I’m not really interested in the open casting design. If I was to go to a fabricated solution, would that compromise the mounting of my fence rail? If not, maybe I’ll just build something and be done with it.

Have your say...
