Removed the Delrin face on one side of my stock fence and attached an extruded aluminum rail to it. Looks a little odd, but it’s dead flat. I was going to cut it a little shorter, but I tried it with a longer piece of plywood and it was so much easier keeping it flat against the fence. I’ll either have to add a auxiliary face or something under the fence to cut 1/4” or thinner material. The stock holes won’t let me lower the rail quite enough.

Nicely done. I may have to look into doing something similar on both of my saws. Where did you get the extrusion?

I got it on Amazon.

I did have to drill and tap a new hole for the sight marker on my T-fence. I think I might still get the face machined though. I’m too picky I guess. hahaha
