Well, I gave in and bought the Delta T2 fence for my restored 1952 Craftsman 10” tilt arbor table saw. I still have the original fence, but the rail was aluminum and not built very well. I am sure that it worked fine in the day, but this one was a sight for sore eyes. I tried to restore the original fence also, but noticed there was a crack in the rail near one of the mounting bolt holes.
Hopefully it will fit the mounting holes of the table saw. From what I can tell, the Delta T2 (biesemeyer clone) should be a good fence. Feels extremely solid and I like the aluminum fence faces.
I was going to try and build something similar to what Hutch had built with extruded aluminum. I really like his design. I think that I’ll still go this route for my other 2 table saws. I may even make one similar for my bandsaw. Here is a link to the fence that Hutch made.
I’ll try to get some pictures tonight.
