Yes I realized that, the extension inside would give me an extra 2/3 feet, if I did happen to need that. You can see a section of the extension, above the main fence. The sliding table on the saw, new, are talking around 550. I was lucky to find a used one for 250. Axminster, greedy, greedy, would probably be inclined to shaft me for around 200. Then would have to wait, perhaps several months, while it comes in their next container order, from China.use that then ready made
Yes, as I say is an extension inside. The front face and base would ne to be perf.ectly flatIf there is an extension piece inside I think welding will be a no. (My welding anyway!)
If there are 3 sides that don't need to be flat afterwards drop it off in Frome if you are passing!
Buy a new one.
Thanks for the advice.if you can’t replace it with a bit of generic 40x40 extrusion then I still say buy new.
You’ll never weld that straight and even after milling it won’t be as good as new.
The best you could do it put some extended tnuts with grub screws in the top and side slots to hold the two pieces together. Like these:
As long as you match the slot width what’s stopping you replacing the entire thing?:
