Topic tags/keywords: tip question tablesaw

The cabinet saw I recently acquired came with a biesemeyer clone. Operation and adjustments are simple, my question is about possibly moving the rails and tubes to the right to increase right of the blade capacity. From the factory it’s 30” to the right and 12” to the left. The angle iron rail is 46” and the square tube is 64”.

Since it is a left tilt saw I really don’t need a fence left of the blade. So I’m hoping someone has a quick and easy answer to how far I can move everything to the right with out effecting fence operation.

Not sure, depends on the Saw, My Made in the U.S.A. Delta is totally adjustable. only screws up the measuring tapes.
Just loosen the bolts on the back and put rails wherever you want them!

I thought on a left tilt saw the fence should be on the right. If it’s not you should be able to move it without any problems. The tape can be replaced to match the set up.
