Hi Forum members..
I am looking for help from anyone who has a Sawstop or similar cabinet saw with an Incra rail system..
I messed up on the installation and and ended up breaking a hex bolt head off .. ( I know I am an idiot) I really did not act over aggressive and was very cautious … I got the front rails on fine and felt I just had to do the same thing on the back , but I guess the back had a plate blocking the large bolt from going further or tightening the bracket to the rail…
sort of a disaster for me…
So… I attached the brackets to the main saw top in the holes on each furthest end (not on the iron extension wings) The one that snapped was on the back motor side…
There are many more holes in which to put the brackets now, I can go 1 spot in on the main saw top and have all the brackets attached to the main saw top (just not with as far a space between the rear brackets).
Or I can mount the brackets far apart on the through bolt extension wings..
Can anyone help me on if this is okay to do and will not mess with the accuracy of the saw or fence system,.?
I have tried to extract the bolt with no luck at all… I think the only thing to do is bore it out and re thread it , which is fine..
But… since the Incra rails only need 2 bolts per rail and I have other areas in which to be able to attach the rails I would like to skip tapping and threading the mess up for now and just attach the rails… If I ever switch to a fence system later that requires all the mounting holes I will deal with it then…
Thanks for any help or advice
