well I’m sure that many off you have had problems with your table saw fence before. and i have been having a lot of problems with mine so i decided to head to Lowes and purchase a delta T-2 table saw fence. i had to go to 3 of them before i actually found it. and it is a big box. it is a pretty beefy fence.
so first i started by removing my old table saw fence and my router table. just to make the installation a bit easier.
then i attached the rails to the table saw. luckily the holes were drilled perfectly to fit my tablesaw. that worked out really nicely. the only problem was that i needed bigger bolts to attach it. i needed a 10 mm 1.5 pitch bolt. those worked fine on the back but on the front where a flat head is called for i couldn’t find a 10 mm flat head. so after about an hour at the grinding wheel i had my heads down enough that my fence could pass.
then i attached the tube, put the fence on and did all of my adjustments. my new wixey digital protractor came in handy so i could make sure my fence was adjusted correctly. then my router table went back on. i will be building a new one soon that will work better with my new fence and router lift. the other one wasn’t made for the router lift or for this fence. but it will only be another 25 dollars so its not major.
so thats it. it works great and is a big improvement. i can’t wait to get some work done now :)
