    Northfield BS Update-New Table Insert-Wheels Installed

    Fabricated a new table insert out of 1/4" aluminum with two threaded holes. Four adjustment screws allow user to set the insert flush with the table top. Once flush, two screws (screwed in from bottom of table) are used to hold insert in position.

    Also managed to get the wheels installed. After all the PITA involved in removal they went on extremely easy. I installed the old blade and with a little adjustment it tracks true even with no guides. I have two new 198" blades on the way from John Welch, Boone, NC. A 1"- 2TPI for my Centauro and a 3/8"-6TPI for this Northfield.

    For all that were perplexed at my paint scheme, I have finally started getting it back close to the original color with some rattle cans.

    Also included in the below link is the shaft described in my 21/31/2018 tire crowning thread.

    Now I need to get brave enough to pull the trigger on some new carter guides!!!

    Re: Northfield BS Update-New Table Insert-Wheels Installed

    I would say replacing the old insert was a good call

    You are rolling right along on this project!
