Default Delta 10" Cabinet Besmyer Fence adjust

I just inherited a 1995 or so Delta 10" Cabinet table saw with the Besmeyer fence for $250. It's in great shape no rust, just some patina on the table top.

The problem is the Besmeyer fence needs adjustment and of course the top is cast iron, the holes need to be plugged up and the rails reattached, besides welding the holes up (taking the top off and lugging it to a welder) is there any other way to take care of this?

(just in case someone knows another way)

TIA

Perhaps some pictures would help explain what you're talking about. I have a 2004 delta cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer fence and it just bolts to the side of my cast iron top and extension table.

I had a delta with a Bies fence and I adjusted it with an Allen key as it had these nylon screws that you can turn . I'm not understaning these other holes though, and I think I read that cast doesn't weld well as it warps quite easily . Pictures may help explain what's going on here

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

As you move away from the table top the fence barley touches the rails, just looking at it the rails are no parallel to the top of the cast iron table. I'll have to go home and measure it and place a level on it as well.

The fence rails should be adjustable. Loosen the bolts and see if you can get the rails parallel to the table top. I'd take the fence off, clean it up and reattach - taking care to properly align it.

If you have to drill new holes for the fence, just leave to older ones - no need to fill them.

J B Weld...sets up like metal and can be re drilled and tapped. It is a two part liquid metal that sets up hard as nails. You can get it at Home Depot or any hardware store.

J B Weld sounds like the best for this application.
I am not a welder but was a welders helper for several years and there is a cast iron welding rod for electric welding,or monel rod ,also cast can be braised with an Oxy/Acety outfit but has to be preheated and cooled slowly to prevent the weld from cracking loose, or warping.
