Good Post. I did the same thing with my saw and also replaced the stock angle iron in the back of the saw with a new one. I went from a 30” rip capacity to 46”

Great idea just what I was thinking of, glad to see someone did it first to work out any kinks.

You can also do this with the Incra fence rails.

Thanks for sharing, Scott. I am prepping to build some cabinets so this was top priority on my to do list.

On my Grizzly 1023RLW (w/router extension wing), I discovered the bolt holes in the rear rail don’t match. Two bolts are 16 inches apart, but the hole in the cast iron wing is 17 inches from the one nearest to it. So, instead of relocating the rear rail, I fabricated an extension out of hardwood. I bolted the extension to the table by using the two existing bolts holding the steel rail in place. I had to replace the bolts with longer ones, but that wasn’t a big deal.

I posted pictures and more details in my blog.

Thanks again for sharing the info. It certainly inspired me.

Thanks for this post.
