Its been a while since I’ve posted anything, so I figured I’d post about the fence I built. I built this to go on to my Delta Rockwell Shaper that I will be restoring. The fence is a Biesemeyer style and has a 2” tube on the back of the shaper that supports the wooden cam lock. Pull the lever up and it locks the fence, push it down and it unlocks. When you pull it up all the way, it ‘snaps’ into place and stays in position – even through the vibrations of the shaper. The cam has enough locking pressure to move the entire shaper (which weights around 300 or 400 pounds) with only pushing on the fence. I did not follow any plans, other than the styling of the Biesemeyer on my Jet table saw. Overall it is very straight and is almost exactly parallel to the miter slot – the difference is much smaller than a tick mark on a ruler.
I have a video on YouTube, please check it out.
Also please check out my other videos on Homemade Drum Sanders and other neat things.
Thank you, Christian
