Here is my hastened auxiliary table saw fence for my Bosch 4100. 8” high and 26” long. I picked up a weird looking cross cut sled that used 2 large T-Track plates as left & right wing from an auction long ago. Never used the sled as it was too sloppy and flexible, but kept the pieces. I used one of the pieces here. Now, I can use vertical featherboards on my table saw and other accessories. Braced on the backside and squared everywhere. It snugs fit over my fence and it will not move, but yet easy to remove. May have to look into affixing to the fence as nudging uptop will make it go out of square…something to look at later. Only issue is the lower lip, as I do not have anything to cut this aluminum straight at the bottom lip. Hence, a 1/2” piece can fit flat against the plate, but 3/4” or taller will ride the top of the T-Track. This may work forever or I may have to cut the bottom lip flush… but for now, I’ll run with it.

Great job on the fence Holbs!

I was wondering how you made the fence parallel to the blade.

Oddly enough, it was too simple to square the Bosch 4100 fence. First, you align blade to miter slot. Second, you loosen the two bolts ontop of the fence near the handle and slide the fence against the blade, clamp down the fence, re-tighten the bolts. Done! Granted, I had to do this 3x’s and cleaned all itty bitty debris off both ends of the fence and fence track. Measure fence to miter slot, do a couple test cuts. Done again!

Aligning Bosch 4100 rip fence. This might help, it’s what worked for me.
