That's nice I want one!
Ditto on the request for part numbers.

I'll post what I ordered and Pat can correct/ammend the items when he has time:

Here is a segment of the parts diagram for the item #'s:


Format:
Item, Part#, Quantity, Description
33, P0555033, 1, Tension Knob Bolt
133, P0555133, 1, Lever Rod
135, P0555135, 1, Bushing
137, P0555137, 1, Bracket
140, P0555140, 2, Support Plate
141, P0555141, 1, Fixed Base


Additional Items that you will need (I didn't order them as I will purchase them locally).

2) 5/16-18 bolts 1 1/2"
2) 5/15-18 bolts 3/4"
1) 5/16-18 button cap screw 3/4"
7) 5/16 flat washers
2) 5/16 lock washers
2) 5/16-18 nylon locking nuts
1) 10 mm flat washer or what ever fits

Here is the list of items from the diagram above if you decided to order all the parts from Grizzly (caution -- you might want to review the diagram and the part quantities yourself to make sure you get what you need if you order from Gizzly).

Item, Part#, Quantity, Description
134, PW01M, 6, Flat Washer 8MM
136, PSB82M, 1, Button Cap Screw M8-1.25x20
138, PB15M, 2, Hex Bolt M8-1.25x40
139, P0555139, 2, Nylon Nut M8-1.25
142, PLW04M, 2, Lock Washer 8MM
143, PB09M, 1, Hex Bolt M8-1.25x20


Pat, if you see anything I missed -- jump right in.

Thanks! I see this upgrade in my near future...

Now one more dumb question -- where do you order the parts? Somewhere online?

Anyone else suspect Grizzly's gonna be backordered on these parts very soon?

I called 1-800-523-4777 to order the parts.

One note, you'll notice that parts 130 A&B and 131 A&B are missing from the list of items ordered. Apparently those items are included with Part # 33 now (they may mention that there is a new part number for that item -- did when I was talking to them anyways).

Good luck.

Thankyou Mr. Foy Teamwork is what this place is all about.[^]
Just a note, can't remember if I mentioned it in the original post. I used 5/16"-18 mounting bolts because I had that tap already. You could use the 8mm 1.25 if you have the tap.
Although I used the metric bolts item 138 5/16"-18 would work fine there too. I wasn't sure at the time if it would make a difference in the fit going throught the fixed base (141) and bracket (137) it won't.
Best and easiest tool enhancement I've done in awhile. Pat

Uh oh. Tap? Is there retooling involved?

I don't have any taps/dies currently, and buying a set, even from HF, would probably price this mod out of my range right now...

You could save some bucks and just buy the size tap you need for now rather than a whole set. True Value store here carries a set with a matching drill bit and tap in one package for around $4.00.

You 'can' turn the tap with a wrench, but as discussed with Pat just a bit ago in the chat room (and I agree), having a tap handle would be better.

Just to clarify, can someone please step me through how to do the mod? I had assumed I just had to replace some HF parts with Grizzly ones, but now we have a tap involved... [:0]
