    Guessing that duct tape would be unseemly.

    Seeing as how repairing it should cost me $150, some duct tape was exactly the remedy. She's now relegated to permanent limited duty at the miter saw station.

    Previous owner removed all the nuts off the bolts holding it to the base. I didn't realize until it came flying out of the truck during a u turn about 500' from my destination.

    Fixed it by throwing 2x the purchase $$ into replacement parts.
