Parts came in today.

At first glance the springs may be a touch bigger than the ones needed for my plane but I believe I can get them to work. They should just stay captive this way.

The blade setting jig should work nice once the springs are installed. I’ll double check the measurements to make sure it sets them near the right height.

The table roller is nice too. But now I have to figure out how to install it. I was hoping it would fit through the top of the table but it doesn’t look that way. It looks like I have to take the top off the base and separate the bottom etc… Was hoping not to have to do that yet. May be getting into the full clean up sooner than I expected.

So I now believe I have all the parts, minus the in and out-feed table bolts I have to replace due to them lifting with that.

Sure hope its worth all the effort once I am done. I am sure it will but I always have that doubt
