ok I feel as though I am opening up a can of worms that most woodworkers are tired of answering.
I am seriously considering upgrading my craftsman flexdrive table saw with a grizzly G1023SLW and am wondering if I should keep my Delta T2 fence for the grizzly, or use the stock shop fox fence that comes with the saw. Any opinions?

Hey Josh, you posted this quite a while ago, what did you eventually decide on?

I actually decided to stick with the craftsman for a while for monetary reasons.

I can relate to that, I really want to replace my Craftsman TS with a cabinet saw of some variety but just haven’t saved up the dollars yet.

Josh – You’re probably already aware that the G1023SLW is discontinued, and has been replaced with the G1023RLW. If you ever do make the switch, the Shop Fox Classic is a little beefier than the T2, though they’re similar designs. The Classic is a copy of the Biesemeyer Commercial fence, the T2 is more similar to the Biese Homeshop fence. Grizzly’s Aluma Classic is closer to the T2 than the Classic.

I can vouch for the Shop Fox Classic ( http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/840 ). I have had mine more than a year and it was a great tool investment.
