Guys thanks a ton. Just today I followed much of the advice on here. I first broke off the cracked piece then ground it back to where it fits then JB welded it back on. Once it’s fully cured I will file back into alignment. Then I drilled and tapped two new gib holes for the back. I am optimistic. I do not ever buy new machinery and am used to jerry-riggin stuff to make it work proper, so I am not a total greenhorn. But if it works out and I think it will, I will have gotten the 15” griz and the 8” Griz jointer for $1050.00 which is a great deal to a person like myself.
