I have been intrigued by this fence for a long time, but went another direction on my Unisaw. Whenever I’m in the Grizzly showroom, I play with it for a minute or two. It glides with amazing smoothness, and appears to always hold its squareness to the table.
My concern about it has to do with how easy it is to remove from the saw when you want to crosscut (because it’s held down at the far end of the table). One of the things I hated about the Delta original fence with the pipe rails was that you had to slide the fence all the way to the end to remove it—and it didn’t slide that easily or smoothly. One of the virtues of the T-square type fence is that you can simply lift it off when needed.
So I’m wondering whether anyone has used this fence, and what experiences you’ve had with it. It’s on sale now, at a very good price, and I fear it may be dropped from the Grizzly line eventually, so I’m considering getting one.
