I am buying a pretty decent Craftsman table saw. I plan to recondition it in my home shop. I have been reading about this series of saws for some time, and feel it would well suit my needs.

I plan on replacing the fence when I get the saw in shape, and would appreciate any suggestions/inputs/cautions/minor insults/etc to assist me in going forward. I have some basic skills but would be concerned with adding a high dollar fence that would require much more than some basic hole drilling.

Are there decent affordable fences out there which will “bolt on” to my saw?

The last CM contractor saw I owned was this model. I parted it out and did pretty well on the deal. I sold/shipped the factory fence to some guy in Alaska which is, IMO, a good place for it.

I’ve never used one but the Delta T3 is often mentioned as a good aftermarket fence. I was surprised to find this deal on ebay:”":

A new replacement fence will probably come with instructions for mounting and you can always ask here for several differing opinions.

The Delta is an excellent fence at a relatively bargain price. It’ll bolt right on your saw with only maybe needing to drill a couple holes. Drilling the cast iron top is much easier than drilling the steel fence rails.

Thanks for the replies. Yesterday, I discovered a Ridgid TS2424 for sale with a few upgrades. I hopped right on it and have spent most of the day in cleanup and alignment.

Have your say...
