Post: RE: Military move damage... dining table

You could get an estimate from a professional to repair it.  If the mover or insurer pays full replacement value, they will own the damaged piece.  They may or may not bother to take it.

There is probably no need unless you have tools that have 20A configured plugs.  15A outlets meet code on 20A lines.  All of the circuits in my house and shop are 20A with 15A outlets.  I have never h...

How about drilling #1&2 all the way through to the inside of the wall in the closet, and then use 6" bolts fastened on the back side with nuts and fender washers.

Did you try squirting a couple of drops of oil into it?  Could be the seals just dried up after non-use for a few years.

I had that saw and hated it.  Ended up dumping it (at a garage sale, I think) and buying a Bosch 1591...have been a happy jigsawer ever since.  Moral:  move on.

The "new" Delta still makes the 14-651.  You might look at the diagram on their parts site on Deltamachinery.com to see if that part is similar and available.

Another endorsement for the PRL-v1 with the Mil 5625.  I've had the router for 15 years and the lift a couple of years less than that.  No issues with either.
