I need to reface my fence because the existing uhwm faces are beat up. Mine is the style where I can unbolt the faces from the bottom. Is there any reason I can’t replace the faces with some 80/20 bolted directly to the fence rail?

If you can figure a way to tighten the 80/20 flush to the tube, there’s no reason you can’t do it. You can also plane the UHWM faces to make the them smooth and flat again.

Joint and.run through your planer. Works a charm. This stuff cuts in longish strands and can clog the chutes.

I don’t see why you can’t drill and tap the fence or drill through and bolt from back. Curious why you want the 8020 on a table saw fence though? I think I would prefer a solid continuous surface.

The fence tube already has untapped holes so if I did it I was hoping to go with bolt washer and 80/20 thingy.

I’m not dead set on the 80/20 I just liked the idea of easily being able to attach kid/fixtures. Since I needed to do something with the current face it just popped in my head.

Thanks to the heads up on planing the faces. I might just do that until I make up my mind.

Never considered attaching a kid to the fence. Does that work better than featherboards? :>P
