I have a Grizzly 1022 table saw. I just bought the Delta T3 fence for it and started installing it last night. I had to drill new holes in the front rail, not a big deal. But The fence is supposed to ride on the back rail (see picture below). I know biesemeyer fences typically ride on the table at the rear of the fence. Would I be better off putting a something on the bottom of the fence and having it ride on the table? I’m thinking yes because I eventually want to install an outfeed table… Any advice is greatly appreciated!

I think your choices are to have it ride the table, or attach your out feed table some way other than sitting on the back rail. Having the pad ride the table also means having it ride over the miter slots, which isn’t really a big deal, but it’s nice to not have to deal with that.

I took the back rail off and let it ride on tables.

My Biesemeyer rides on the table (always has). It has two plastic ‘buttons’ installed into the metal tube, far enough apart that it will slide across the miter slots without a hint of snagging.

Have your say...
