Built this fence for my homemade bandsaw. It is adjustable for blade drift and can be used on both sides of fence. All of it is made from maple, including T-track. I have had a few different fences baught from the store and this is the most versitile one yet.

Got the plans from American woodworker at http://www.americanwoodworker.com/blogs/shop/archive/2009/10/26/bandsaw-fence.aspx

Nice job. I bet when you make a tool or attachment you know everything about it and what to expect from it.

Thanks.
Lee: I posted the bandsaw not that long ago but had nothing but problems with that profile and couldn’t get my posts to work properly. However I did favourite it so if you go to my favourites then you will see it there. I can post it again if everyone wants to see a repeat.

Calisdad: I tend to research things way too long when approaching a build. However you never really know what to expect from something until after trying it. It sure is nice when something exceeds expectations such as this fence did.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Nice band saw fence! Very useful and looks pretty accurate.
