Just purchased a used Biesemeyer fence system and the it was not locking into position properly. I then saw a small piece of rectangular white plastic (approx 1 ” x 1.5”) had fallen of the fence from somewhere. The piece appears to be able to be glued back on. Does anybody know where this piece goes and if it is affecting the locking mechanism of the fence? Pictures would be great.

it might help to know the model of your fence.

Here is a link for the instruction manual for Biesemeyer

There should be two pieces of the uhmw plastic. One mounted on each end of the on the inside of the angle iron the locking head is made of. They provide a slick surface to prevent damage when sliding the fence on the rail. I had a Jet clone and it also had two nylon screws that were used to adjust the fence parallel to the blade. Any of these being missing or out of adjustment make it impossible to lock the fence square to the blade.

Have your say...
