Installed last trim on head , not sure if I'm going to trim for lock mech .
Cut all the pieces for the cabinet , some will need to be shorten .
Cleaned head and cabinet wire harness in the ultrasonic cleaner for about 15 to 20 minutes each .

Cool. Thanks for the info.. What size is it? 6 or 10L ???

I'm going to be shopping a few of my machines (DW & RS) in August. I find the vibrating polisher to not be that effective. I won't be doing harnesses so I'm thinking 6L will be big enough...

There's still so much to do , but that's ok . :FP:

It's a lot easier to repin a wire harness when removed . New connectors and connector housings for the head . I still have to do the cabinet wire harness but will need to restock.

I didn't pick the right kind of good both sides plywood, so it left me with deep wood grain. I glazed putty the whole head and cabinet and sanded to a smooth finish. Reprimed the head and gave it one final good coat of paint. I'll let it dry for a week and start stencils .
