Topic tags/keywords: bessy 3 delta t2

I bought this thinking I could use it on my saw but it won’t fit over my Delta T2 fence. So what can I do with it? Any suggestions? Really don’t need it on my miter saw. larry

Could you make it fit with longer threaded rod/knob and extending the 2 flat metal pieces that the clamping bar thingie pivot on? Cool buy for $3.

Or use it on miter gage fence or cut off sled?

I probably would have brought it home too, and figured out a use for it later, or how to modify it to work with another tool I already own. You did good for $3 and my guess is that you’ll find something to mount it on and make it work for you.

Could also use it for repetitive holes at the drill press…

I have one similar that I use there. Cost me more than $3.00!

hotbyte: Maybe with some work, I may think on it.

Don: You are probably right, I’ll put it with my other genius projects. :)

justfine: Now that might just work. Especially drilling holes at equal spacing.

Thanks guys.
