Dear all

I’m a new woodworker as a hobby, I just bought a used Jet table saw 708480, want to upgrade the wings with cast iron, my wife does not give me much money for upgrade it, so cheaper is better for me no matter used, anybody in here has more experience I think, so appreciate for any suggestions. I’m living in los Angeles California.

Thanks

Nearly any 27” cast iron wing can be made to work….some drilling may be required, but cast iron drills pretty easily.

You can also build wings from melamine, MDF, plywood, countertop, solid wood, etc.

That was my next suggestion. When I’m on a budget, I make it.

You’re welcome, but I’ll bet the owners of those wings wouldn’t be happy if I took credit for them! ;-)
