Hello Lumberjocks!!

Had this saw laying around for almost two years before I decided to give this baby some more elbow room ,and besides giving myself an extra work surface at the same time. I came up with the idea of using a pipe clamp fitted snuggly into a tight channel and thus make a fence that will not budge.Hope you like.

Now that is a great mod to a less than spectacular saw… Certainly not a Unisaw, but it sure extends the usefulness of the bench top models for sure!

The pipe clamp fence is a really clever idea! I can’t believe I never thought of it.

I’ve wondered about doing this to my little benchtop table saw for a while, and was hung up about building a decent fence for it – this might just work. Thanks for posting it.

B.T.W Lumberjocks ,, A lso forgot to mention that its a laminated constuction for the cabinet and legs,I wanted to keep it light weight so i used 3/4 poplar for the carcas with lap joint construction and 1/4 birch plywood for surfaces.The legs also fold up and catch underneath with spring loaded latch,gonna add two large wheels in the front side where the saw is so i can simply fold the legs up a stow away when not in use. Note the fence is made of Oak. hope it gives someone with a similar saw an idea for theirs.

Nice setup. I like the pipe clamp fence idea. How accurate is the fence.

hello halltree

im quite impressed with its accuracy and the plus side that it doesnt shift on me.Reason being that the fence is heavy and the pipe clamp realy secures itself, Anyway better then using that flimsy fence the saw came with!
