It seems to me you should be able to buy
a new base casting from Grizzly.

Personally I would put the table on and see
if it works right without the repair. From there
I’d assess what type of repair to go with. To
have it welded or perhaps brazed may introduce
other problems. If it can be made to function
with a cruder, bolt-on repair that involves no
heat that might be better. Perhaps epoxy
combined with a steel plate on the outside
at tapping the parts would do.
