I keep adding and adding to my table saw rail, mostly with safety and usability improvements.
First I added the Wixey DRO with a General International microadjuster.
Then I added the Jessem Clear-Cut Precision Stock Guides, which were a nice addition.
But last year I bought the Duelen Safety Fence for my table saw fence, but hadn’t installed it yet. It’s an interesting device. You turn a crank, which pushes a small foot which pushes the wood down the fence while hold-downs keep the wood against the fence.
So, time to put it all together.
So I built a secondary fence that I can snug on the stock SawStop Beisenmeyer fence with some adjustable hold-downs, but it needed clearance to be over the Jessem, as well as holes for the rods on the Jessems.
The secondary fence can be removed to allow just use of the Jessem for larger goods, or the Jessem guides can be retracted to use a conventional push stick or a Micro-Jig Grr-Ripper.
A quick build, and here is the final project:
The microadjuster and digital readout allow 0.005 resolution. The Duelen Safety Fence allows small strips to be safely moved along the fence (really kinda cool engineering on that one), and the Jessem is good for larger goods.
