I have a new reconditioned Delta Unisaw shipping to me. It comes with a NIB (not used) Beis fence and 50” rails. I am 99.9% sure that it is going to be way to big for my shop. Once I get the saw set up I will know if the 50” will be too big. Mine will be NIB and yours must also be. NEW for NEW. I am uncertain what I will be doing with the included extension table so if you would like to trade for that also I am open to any suggestions. I’m not partial to the idea of taking my Sawzall to it to make it fit. That just seems down right wrong. Anyway, I live about 35 miles north of Dallas TX. Send me an email or post here.

Got a buddy had the same problem…he just cut the rail off to fit the space which was longer than the lesser fence so he came out ahead of the game.

I’m close by in Grapevine, but if I did that, I’d have the same issue as you. I’ll be upgrading to an Incra TS-LS fence soon, and I’m still worried that the 32” fence will be too long for my space (the Incra takes up more space than normal as it is).

I’ve ordered the shorter rails this weekend. I was tempted to cut them but I figured about the time I did that I would have a need for them so I’ll just have an extra set of rails setting around for now.

been there done that end grain, I cut my old set down to 37 inches for my old shop, plenty of room in my new shop but I couldnt find the drop I had cut off, was gonna weld it back on, ended up putting a unifence on that I had laying around, its ok but It aint a biesmeyer.
