I was always looking to perfect mi miter gauge fence, and finally I got it. I made this ultimate miter fence for my table saw to get accurate and precised cuts. It has extension arm to cut repeaded cuts to same lenght and great flip up stop that goes out of the way when you don’t need it.
It also has hold down clamp that is very useful for close cuts to the blade, definitelly safes the fingers, plus it holds the piece of lumber in place. Also if you noticed on each side of the cutting pattern where the blade meets the fence there is a guard made from 3/4 stock to protect the hands from the blade plus it holds dust that doesn’t fly out the back of the fence straight to your eyes. as we all know when we push the piece of wood thru the blade comes out the back of the fence so this is very nice safety feature.

I hope you guys llike it and build one for yourself , I definitelly use it a lot. THX and keep woodworking

It is excellent. You not only showed your creativity in building the
Fence, but also chose a name most appropriate name for it. It is really ULTIMATE. Thanks for sharing. My table saw is arriving soon and this would be the first project on it and for it.

I see this as a “very near in the future build”. Great idea and nice build.

I’m definitely building one but thought of something else to add to it to to make it a little more versatile for my needs. But this is really very nice and why I will build one like this. Way to go, very nice and I’ll give you a favorite.

I was thinking along the lines of a replaceable piece where the blade cut through the guide fence. I switch a lot between single blade and dado blades and once you run a dado blade through then you no longer have that zero tolerance for a single blade. So I was thinking of making a cutout a couple of inches wider then the blade and just taller then routing around it to accept a replacement piece that would be a keeper for that particular blade setup. Say like a replacement piece that was for a 3/4 dado. Of course you could end up with a drawer full of replacement pieces but I was thinking of just the more common ones like 3/4 by 3/8 deep or so. The majority of replacements would be dados of course but it would save having to replace the whole fence after multiple uses.

That is a great Idea, you could do like 4×4” square cut out in the fence where the blade cuts and have 1/4” MDF inserts. very clever, I was going to do something like this but I have seperate fence for dado so I didn’t bother doing it.

Also if you cut angles that is also good idea to make inserts for that as well .

The blocks on the back of your fence helped give me the idea at they will strengthen the gap made by creating the cutout for replacement pieces.

Looks real good But I guess I missed the point. The point of crosscut sled is to be able to support the wide work when you pull back the sled maximum distance from blade where miter gauge has a short range and can only support narrow boards.
