I have a 12” Craftsman band saw that I have never been happy with. A few months ago I finally did a comprehensive tuneup on it and that made a whole different saw out of it. It still needed something for a fence. I looked for a fenceseveral places almost bought the Kreg fence figuring I could modify it to fit. The blade change slot on this saw would require taking the fence mount and rail off to change the blade, that removed most commercial fences. This fence appeared in the Oct Woodworkers Journal (my wife brought one home from somewhere). I modified it to fit my table and it is working very well. Made out of oak cutoffs. Fnished with spar varnish and waxed.
