After finishing my most recent project I have some parts to install on a couple of shop tools.
First one is on my Ridgid 4511 table saw.
I bought a Delta T2-30 fence that is a standard one piece rail and tube set up vs. the split tube and rear rail that was OEM for my saw. I have had this fence for several weeks but was using the saw to finish a work table so it had to wait.
This evening after work I unbolted the old fence and rear rail, and was prepared to start measuring and marking and clamping rails to line up for drilling new holes.
Surprise was that two holes on each rail lined up, and snugged up nice and tight. So I mounted the tube on the front rail, and used an adjustable square to make sure I was equidistant from the table top across the length of the tube.
Things were looking pretty good so I put the fence on and adjusted it to the miter slot and blade. Nice so far, and there are only two issues at this point and that is that the fence faces are riding high, so I will have to lower them to the table and the tape is off zero by 15/16.
So I have marked the zero point when the fence it flat against the blade, and I will either re-position the tape or get a new one and mount it.
Total time so far on install is one hour. I think the two rear rail bolts are plenty because it is just for the rear of the fence to ride on. The two front bolts I think I may leave for awhile and if I notice anything I can take off the rail and drill the other two holes.
As fast as this has gone, well I am pleased so far.
