From what I have heard and seen the MLCS table is a good deal. Especially with the free shipping MLCS offers.

Dusty,
How about just using T-Track for the Vertical support slots? Here is a pic of one a guy made on the Router Forums...
Thank you, George. This looks very interesting.

bringing this thread back from the dead.

Ed (or any jointmatic users) - could you post some photos of the raising mechanism? I thought I took some, but can't seem to find them. Just want to get this bad boy back into normal working order....which means getting the parts in the right order ;)

A pair of 520 front rails would work great. Problem is they are almost as expensive as the rigs that have been referenced here.
Think smaller. Think RAS rails. 3/8" round rod(mounted to sides) and curved face casters on the slide(or pairs mounted at an angle to form a 'v'..

Hi,

Not much to see from the back but let me know just what you want to see and I will take some pictures for you.

Thanks ed. I need detail photos of the raising mechanism. ie: a shot from the back of the unit with the handle and the rod.

I want to make sure I get the nuts and such in the right order, and make sure I am not missing a washer or anything.

Where is the wave washer on yours?

Thanks!

Picture one shows the crank with slide sleeve, then (larger) black nylon washer.

[ATTACH]14777[/ATTACH]

Picture two show the underside starting with the (smaller) black nylon washer, washer (not on parts list) , hex nut, and jam nut.

[ATTACH]14778[/ATTACH]

Picture three shows the spring washer, it is on top of the bushing nut, the adjusting nut was turn way up so you can see the washer. When adjusted the washer is hidden.

[ATTACH]14779[/ATTACH]

The forth and last shot of this post shows the bushing nut. Please note that the slidee you see is a repaired one. A former user did the repair and so far it has held up. To be on the safe side I purchased another one just in case. This was the down fall of the Joint-matic I think, Slide should have been made of metal or they should have used the original dual drives...

[ATTACH]14780[/ATTACH]

Anyway make sure you get that adjustment set per the manual.

Awesome. This is super helpful. So if I am understanding the repair shot correctly, the issue there is that the plastic can be weak and while cranking up/down if there is any binding the table will break there. Correct?

I think the problem has to do with the way the machine is used in some operations. If you trap the workpiece between the table and the bit the weak link is the attachment spot on the slide.

I personally haven't have that happen but I have seen a fair number of machines for sale that had the slide broken, so it does happen.
