I have a Grizzly G1012 18” woodworking band saw, when I purchased it, there were missing parts. I replaced the fence with a stock Grizzly fence. Since then I have decided I would like the option of being able to resaw stock.
I have done it successfully on some oak and maple, I was extremely happy with the results using a new woodslicer blade from Highland Woodworking. My issue is that with certain other woods I can’t seem to get enough adjustment from the fence to make a successful cut. I am considering another fence but not sure which way to go.
I have been looking at a Kreg fence but don’t want to spend the money if I don’t have to. Is there another way to utilize the fence that I have. I was entertaining the idea of attaching an extruded piece of aluminum to the fence that and piggy backing another adjustable fence (homemade) to that. Has anyone out there experienced the same situation that could help me with some suggestions.
Kreg could only tell me and I quote: “I’m sorry but I will not be able to give you a 100% answer since the chart you are referring to is the only reference that we have. According to the other 18” models it should fit just that you will have to remove the mounting rail every time you change the blade”
Any help would be appreciated.
