« Part 20: assembling the extension wing/router table Part 21 of Jet cabinet saw re-hab series Part 22: New facing for Biesemeyer fence »

Titebond Melamine for the wood to Melamine joints and Titebond III for the wood to wood joints. Lots of clamps…

Legs bolted on and corners reinforced with screws, and 1/4-20×1” long lag bolts with the tips ground flat installed as leveling screws for the plate

And here it is all pretty, with the plate leveled, the fence and miter rail installed….

I’m all ready regretting not laminating the top, as the Melamine has already chipped a little at the edge of the Miter track.

Looks great!!!
When will the saw dust fly??? Inquiring minds want, err NEED to know (& seee)!!!

The chips are nothing to worry about. After using your saw for a while, a little use & abuse should be expected & acceptable.

If it really gets trashed…
just use your “Newly Rehabbed TS” to make another!!!

Now I can finish bolting up the fence ‘L’ rails, and get the guide tube mounted.

Then I make new facings for the fence and put the new sticky tape rules on…..

True up the fence and get the cursor set correctly and I’ll be a rippin!
