I recently purchased a Rousseau table saw stand for my Bosch 4100. I bought the 2775 ythat’s made for the Bosch saws. They’re not cheap. I paid more for this stand than I did for the table saw that I bought off of Craigslist. Anyway, as good as the fence is, I still wanted to have the Biesemeyer feel with the slick laminate sides. I downloaded the instructions from Delta on how to replace the sides on a Biesemeyer saw fence. I used that as a guide and copied it. I bought some 1/2” baltic birch and ripped it 2 1/2” wide. Then I used #10×3/4” hex head screws to mount the plywood sides to the fence. Then I had to buy 3M Fastbond. TapPlastics was the only place in my area that carried the stuff. Super expensive! Then I went to a local plastic laminate dealer and bought a sheet of discontinued “formica” for 25cents a square foot. Glued that on and trimmed off the excess. Then I had to order the plastic T-molding online from Also got the 1/16” 3-wing cutter. Finished it up today. I’m quite pleased with the results.

What is your total investment in that whole setup?
