I took the Biesemeyer Fence off of my old table saw and installed it on my cabinet saw, this unfortunately left my old table saw with out a fence. So I built one. The rails are made out of oak, while the fence itself is made out of ash. The lock handle is a cam lock, and sqeeks very badly when being locked down haha. It locks so good that I can push the 300 pound saw around with just the fence. It is all screwed together with no glue. The fence angle is adjustable through the screw holding the T-section on.

Thanks for looking, Christian.

Christian, is there any chance you have any detailed photos of the locking mechanism; I’d like to have a go at making this.
