So, I picked up a Unifence a while back and I’m ready to put it on my RIDGID TS3650. One big problem… I don’t have the template for drilling the holes. The manual doesn’t give any particular measurements regarding hole spacing and distance below the table top. The distance between holes isn’t so much of an issue, but I do need to know how far the hole(s) need to be below the table surface.

If any one has the template or is willing to back their rail off a little bit and take a measurement for my, I’d be much obliged.

Thanks, jocks!

What manual are you looking at? This one has some pretty detailed instructions on mounting the fence rails and extension table for both Delta and non-Delta machines. Specifically for the rails, it says:

FOR TABLE SAWS OTHER THAN DELTA
3. Drill two 7/16” holes in the front of the table 1.18” from the top of the table and approximately 2” in from the right and left side of the table. Insert two 3/8-24×1” hex head bolts into the two holes (F) Fig. 20, in the front of saw table and place flat washer and nut onto bolt from underneath the saw table. Screw bolts into nuts two full turns, leaving bolt head extended approximately 1/2” from the table.

Is that what you were looking for?

Cheers,
Brad

The 3/8” below the top is the top of the rail—and it is so that the front fence is below the table saw top so that it will not interfere with a board that is cut.

Brad’s measurements sounds about right … but since the rails are aluminum, you can always drill new holes so that they fit in the front of the table … just be sure to keep the rail below the table so that the fence front and the big black adjustment knobs.

Brad,

That’s exactly what I was after! I have an older manual that doesn’t give the dimension… Just “follow the template”.

Thanks, everyone.

Have your say...
