    Extension table fail

    Sanded rust off the extension table to the Timberline saw this morning. This was under all the rust.

    Too light to be a boat anchor. Too big to be a paper weight. To unstable to again be an extension table. Requires skill and tooling I don't have to repair it. Too expensive to send out. On to Plan B, whatever that is.

    Well, that sucks! Could you replace it with, say, thetable saw router table extension from MCSI, and kill two avian exemplars with one petrous fragment? It's a nice, heavy chunk of cast iron.

    I wonder if epoxy could bond it well enough to use?

    If so, some autobody filler inthe gouges and hard epoxy paint on top might give you a useable part?
    It's kind of fun to do the impossible

    That last picture that shows the grain of the metal is interesting in its own right.

    The other half might be useful as a lapping plate or something similar if its flat enough.

    I had replaced a stamped wing with a white oak framed slab of 3/4" MDF on one of my saws. It served me for years and served my dad for nearly as many. Sure its not CI but, it certainly works.

    I've done the same as Glenn. Worked well.

    I like Glenn's fix, if you can't find someone to weld it.

    3 of the 4 bolt holes that hold it to the main table are broken out and/or cracked. This one is a goner. I have another cast iron extension table or two somewhere, but that is not likely the fix for this one. Likely it will be a variation of Glenn's extension. The upside is that the entire assembly will be lighter. Since this is to be a mobile job site saw, that is not a bad thing. Build of mobile cab to begin later in October when I get back from my out of state assignments.

    I like Darren's fix. Clean and neat. Makes me wonder if saw is ever used? Looks to clean for company work.��
