Thanks for the link! Looks to be easy enough. I’ll more than likely be taking the entire thing apart to clean things up. It’s got some rust on most of the innards that’ll need to be cleaned up and lubed. The top has some rust on it as well. I figured that will probably work itself out as I sand it to flatten it out.

So as for the cast iron wings I found. The guy said they measure 27” x 10” which is about what the craftsman ones are. I think the steel ones are 27” x 12”. He doesn’t know what kind of saw they came off of. I figured they would still work won’t they? I may have to re drill some holes. Or do y’all think it’s even worth the hassle to have the cast iron wings?

I would use them since you already have them. The extra 10 inches wide will give you 10 more room for your fence to travel.

It has the steel wings on it now that are 12” wide. I’ll lose about 4” of space by using the cast iron wings in their place because they’re only 10” wide. It seems like the holy grail of the table saw extensions from what I’ve read. Me being a newb, I’m very fortunate to have y’all here for advice.

I have found the easiest way to work on the innards of these saws is to flip them over so you can see what you're doing, if you have taken it apart to get it in your car you are half way there.
