Hey Guys,
I need some info. I purchased a PM66 and a set of rails, but there were no bolts to mount the rails to the saw. What size bolts do I need?

Prob 1/4-20 countersinking Philips head. Or something like that.

It depends on which fence rails, if they are round it takes a shoulder bolt and spacer, beis type takes standard hex bolts.

The round rail will use these, (minus the nut, this is for unisaw)

Then it will be a tapered machine screw that fridge referenced.

The factory holes in the table are the same as on the Delta I believe, which are 3/8”-24. For mounting a Biesemeyer, those usually aren’t used and instead you need to drill 1/4 holes in the table to match the mounting holes on the rail, then use 1 inch long 1/4” flat head machine screws and nuts to secure to the table.

Just realized… the manual above is for the older commercial fence/rail system, not the home shop version (which has smaller rails). Linked here just in case that is what you have instead:

it would appear that my rails are for the commercial fence, not the home shop version, but thanks
