Shop Fox makes 3 models…the Original, the Classic, and the Aluma Classic. Which are you looking at?

I’ve owned the SF Classic and the Vega, and could live with either. The Vega has a great microadjuster, the Classic is very robust. Both nice fences.

The Delta T2 fence is worth a look. It gives you a great fence for the money (it costs under $200).

Also check out INCRA. It’s a beautiful fence

I used the Vega for a number of years on an older Delta cabinet saw (contractor saw with enclosed base 1.5HP motor)-recommend it very highly. Especially liked their accessories like the anti-kickback tires and spring steel hold down-increases safety when ripping.
Would buy it again in a heartbeat if I needed a new TS fence.

I replaced my original 1953 Delta unisaw fence with a Beisenmeyer. It is such a joy to use and I appreciate it every time I use it. Bought it on ebay for less than $300 and would do it again if I had to. There are probably cheaper alternatives but I am not disappointed.

Agree 100%, It’s worth every penny. Calibrate your “Zero” setting and you never have to measure again. Just set the fence to the cut width and lock it down. Very accurate, very sturdy.

Biesemeyer is the only way to go in my opinion
