When you dig around under my bench! OK, so I’m not the tidiest person when it comes to my garage. However comma this even made ME stop and say “Holy #%@¥!!!” I vaguely recall buying this at an auction before I retired from the Air Force (2008!). It was in a box, disassembled, and dirty. Paid $. for it. I put it under the bench and, apparently, out of thought.
Fast forward to this weekend. Looking for ‘something else’ and rediscovered it – in a box, disassembled and dirty. Cleaned it up, replaced a couple bits of hardware and voila! Now, all I need is a decent router table setup to mount it on and I’ll have a new toy to play with!

That’s a nice find but too bad you forgot about it for this long .
Nice fence system to have and should give you much enjoyment playing around with it .
Have fun !!!!!!!

Dang! All I find under my bench are dust bunnies and spiders.

It’s like Christmas all over again!!!

Think I’ll go look under my bench….
In the cabinets….
Under the wood scrap pile….
yada, yada, yada….

Your not alone .
I was doing small job today,while looking for a 1/4 drill bit for dowels, (I am building a melamine cabinet) found a “Stanley 59” dowel pin jig in the third tray of tool box. Forgot I had one. It worked great.
