Does anyone know where I can buy the hairline pointer (magnified would be great) to fit my fence? The one that came on my saw I just bought was broken off. And a web search, Delta search, Amazon search ect. turned up nothing. I cant believe this would not be offered for sale. Its the most fragile part on the fence.

As a side note, I am glad the fence I got is original Biesemeyer. The Amazon reviews for the new Delta fences look bad.

I Googled Biesemeyer fence parts and got a ton of hits. Ereplacement parts has an extensive list of Biesemeyer models. The cursor part looks the same for most of them. They are in stock. If you know the type fence and specific model number you can see the parts diagram for your fence.

If you search for “Biesemeyer Cursor”, you will find several sources… or you can make one yourself pretty easily. Here is a quote from another site from someone who made their own:

I’ve replaced a smashed indicator on a Biesemeyer by using a small square of 1/8” clear Plexiglas. I scratch a straight line down the middle with a sharp utility knife. Then wipe the line with black acrylic paint, and wipe immediately, and that becomes the bottom, and you have a very fine black line. Drill holes to mount.

I’m in the process of re-painting and re-facing mine at the moment, and need to replace the cursor as well – so I’ll probably be going that route myself. I’ve already made an end cap and handle knob (both were missing) out of HDPE for it, so the cursor should be a breeze :)

Cheers,
Brad

Your Google Fu is not in balance, Grasshopper. Meditate and walk on rice paper. Then, you will find self-awareness. ;)

No joke. The way I feel now, I could try to surf for explicit images and fail. I could try to seek out a Nigerian prince who needs someone to hold some cash in their acct and fail. I could try to search for cheap Viagra and come up with nothing.

My Google is all Dinky Dau.

Or you may get explicit images of Nigerian prince by mistake ,then no amount of Viagra is going to put you back in the mood.lol.
Bytheway, how are you going to make the Biesemeyer cursor with the magnifier?

Distrbd,
been thinking that over. I know I have seen a fence of some nature with the fisheye on it. Can’t remember which. May have been the b-meyer RAS stop that had it. By the way, that is one fine RAS stop they make.

Nigerian prince in the buff, the thought made me bankrupt and sterile.
