This is what I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time but the upgraded version of the unifence from peach tree is expensive! I found on Amazon aluminum extrusions and for the same price as the store bought version I got a piece long enough to make a new table saw fence, router table fence, and new crosscut sled.
I decided to increase the length of my table saw fence to 37” and this stuff is easy to cut on the miter saw with an old blade.
I used a small scrap piece of aluminum to make a bracket to off set the bolts because the T tracks aren’t made quite the same as the upgraded unifence but with a little patience I got it attached to the fence and attached it back into the same bolt holes that the old fence attaches to the head of the T square head.
Now you can attach jigs and fixtures or whatever you can dream up!!! It’s perfectly straight and square and aligned better than ever!! I’m super excited at how it turned out.
I even tapped the end of the fence because it already had a hole that was perfectly ready to be tapped by 5/16 so I tapped it and put in an eye bolt to hang it up when I need it off the table, so now I don’t have to lay it down and trip over it or knock it off something and mess it up lol.
Thanks for reading and taking a look. Appreciate all the help and ideas and fellowship this site has for us all. Hope this inspires someone and helps them to make the already awesome unifence the perfect fence that it should have been straight out of the box lol.
