So I’m getting ready to finally start on my out feed table rebuild. My table saw is a Steel City hybrid with a Biesemeyer style fence. On the back of my fence, there is a little foot on a threaded rod that sits on the back rail to support the rear of the fence.
I’d like my out feed table to be fairly tight to the rear of the saw to minimize the chance of catches, better dust control, etc. This would mean removing the foot. I can replace it with UHMW glide strips at the rear of the fence to ride on the saw top, so I’m not that worried.
But I’d like to tap the LJs to see if there is something I’m missing about the rear foot. Its purpose seems obvious and it seems like some fences don’t have one anyway. Is there something I’m missing here or can I just remove this and go about my business?
