I’m actually surprised that you want an aftermarket fence! I have a 4100 and am really quite pleased with the fence. The only thing I’d like to change about it is the length; I wish it started a few inches earlier. Even if I found a better fence, I would probably be annoyed that I couldn’t stash it in that dedicated fence-storage spot while I use my crosscut sled.

FWIW, I wouldn’t recommend another table saw. I know everybody bashes on the portables (and they have their downsides, I agree), but I very very rarely feel like it’s holding me back. I can absolutely do 0.001” level work with no more effort than I’d need on a bigger/better saw. The downsides are mostly noise and handling of long and/or wide pieces. I did replace the miter gauge with a nice incra.

Finally, my shop is 12’x14’... I feel your pain.
