Here is my cheapskate tablesaw fence! I cannot claim the design on this one, though. Thanks John! The 1/4” aluminum U-channel cost me $30 at a metal shop. I cut a short section off to use as the fence and locking plate. The rest is covered with 3/4” melamine to use as a fence. The front rail is about $15 from the electrical section of your local hardware store and can be cut to whatever length you want. I salvaged the rear locking mechanism off the stock tablesaw fence to eliminate deflection. All in all, it works very well. It’s not perfect, but it is perfectly useable and it only cost around $40.
