Well, I finally finished the fence I threatened to build. Basically, it gave me almost 6’ to the right and 28” to the left. I used 1/2 UHMW for the sides of the fence and they are slick. The fence wound up to be 46” long from front to back. It was a fun project and I have been busy rearranging my shop to get a better work flow. Shop is getting smaller as tool count increases. The back was kind of a pain in the butt, but I was nothing a grinder couldn’t handle. Plan on putting a router on the right side table, but I went to Rockler in Buffalo and about fell on the floor when I saw how much they wanted for a router lift and it didn’t even include the plate. So I will put a regular plate in and do it the ol’ fashion way for a while. The saw is a Ridgid 3612. Just a couple little things I am going to do, but other than that its pretty much being used every day now. I ordered the UHMW for the guides and I got the measuring marker from A1 place to get parts for things by the way. Thanks for looking. Todd

Impressive upgrade for a contractor saw. Are you saying you built the fence and rails from scratch?That sure looks like Biesemeyer rails.

Yeah, I got the steel and welded the fence up. The store models are way too pricey for me.
Honestly guys this was way easier to build than I first thought. It was nothing but a couple welds and bolting the square tubing to the angle iron. You don’t even need the back rail, I put it on for balance and for table mounting. I would say most of the strength was taken out of the back one though because I had to allow for the trunion adjustment lever on the Rigid 3612 saw and for the exterior upward swing of the motor mount.

Admirable talents in wood and metal. Great looking setup that should be a pleasure to use. BTKS

If you get the Triton 2 1/2 router it can be mounter on a plate and raised and lowered from the top of table without a lift. You can also change bits without removing the router with one wrench from the top of table as well. Great router and great price! I love this thing. Here is some info on it.
