Hello all –
I snooped around quite a bit and ended up ordering a Shop Fox Aluma Classic Fence with long rails and legs. W1720 (W1716 but with long rails). From all the reviews and comparisons and whatnot I cannot for the life of me figure out what the downside is to this fence compared to the steel Classic fence or any of the others.
Did I get the wrong fence? How accurate should it be and how is that quantified? My initial impetus for buying a new saw was frustration with my Ridgid TS2424 fence. On a Unagauge it would be off anywhere from 10 to 35 thousandths out of square to the blade at any given time (right AFTER squaring it), and there seemed to be no way to fix it. Is that normal? how repeatably square should this fence be – cut to cut?
