Thanks guys, I hadn't considered magnets, only considered not using the screws. The Jet does fine without one so I could never figure out if it was a litigation issue or if there really was a concern for the plate lifting. Yes, all the tops are cast iron, only my jobsite saws have the aluminum, or nonferrous tops. I'm not always convinced that those tops are actually aluminum.

If you cannot stand behind our troops, (and I understand, no judgement here), then please stand in front of them, remember, they're willing to stand in front of you!
