Hey Al,

You might think about doing what I did on my saw…. I have a Delta 14” with fence, but I hardly ever used it for re-sawing…it was (is) not that good..too much drift… Soooo…I made a sled to mount into the miter slot. I made it out of MFD, cut a dado in the bottom to use a hardwood runner, just like you make for a tablesaw. I then cut another dado about 6” from the front of the sled to fit a miter gauge, and screwed a tall hardwood board to the m.g. for a fence….just raise the blade arm to the higth you need, clamp your board you’re gonna re-saw on to the hardwood fence, clamp your miter gauge down, and you’re in business….hardly any drift at all…... here’s a couple of pics of mine…..don’t cost much either…..
