Very practical. I really like the top mounting. I’m sure that will come in handy. Have you made a tall angle bracket to fasten to the top?

Great product improvement. Wonder if Delta is going to send you a decal for the end?

Have to ponder my non-delta to see if I can incorporate that.

Cool idea!

I think Bill Biesemeyer would approve. I might steal your idea if that’s OK. I took a minute to find the article on the Biesemeyer fence system history. If you haven’t read it here it is.

I really like the idea of the vacuum arm attachment…been debating how to get the vacuuming above the blade without buying one of the expen$ive boom attachments or simliar.

This is a great way to have a temporary one that isn’t that big or pricey.
