I acquired a new “used” bandsaw that was head over heels what I originally had, but did not have the most important item, a fence.
I needed to resaw rails for my crib build so I needed a way to do that without having to push manually to adjust for the blade drift. Here is what I cam up with. It has a base that slides into the mitre slot and has a stop to center it on the table. Once you set for the depth and drift, just push it through and the stop will keep it from going forward. Works pretty well.

Nice idea on that fence, Good job!
Many years ago I had a band saw just like yours. Had to sell it when we moved. But it did the job. Your new fence looks like it will do the job!

Very nice! I have this same band saw and bought it used without a fence as well. Added your build to my favorites and my list of projects to do.

Thank you guys! It works like a charm! I wish that i could have made a way it could slide without having to readjust for the drift, but that are the things you figure out after making the prototype. I have enjoyed its performance and I am glad I have it now.

Thanks for looking.
