The total cost for this project was about $6.00 in screws and $6.00 for the 500 lb verticle toggle clamp. I did buy the oak sacrificial fence strips at home depot for $10.00 because I wanted my saw back soon. I used tape to micro adjust the oak strips to be perfectly plumb prior to screwing them in. This project started when my stock craftsman 113 fence came off the saw while ripping. Me being the cheap guy I am came up with the bed frame idea. There is a lip on the front rail that allows the fence to slide in a groove. To insure time and use would not widen the groove I installed washers on the front of the t frame to ride on the rail to keep side movement from affecting cut quality. I can tighten or loosen the washers for micro adjustment. My cut capacity is now about 44 inches on the right and 20 inches on the left. Not a bad upgrade for 22 bucks and the fence is bullet proof with no lateral movement. Thanks for looking if you have any suggestions I would love to hear it.
