I’m looking for a table saw fence that will fit a 2X3” front rail. It can be a Biesemeyer or a clone. I only need just the fence but would consider a whole fence kit if the price is right. I’m in St. Louis MO

Thank you,
David

HTC, Jet Exacta, PM Accufence, Shop Fox Classic, Steel City Industrial, Biesemeyer Commercial, and the General T-Fence are all candidates for that size rail.

Amazon has a 3rd party seller who lists the Biese Commercial fence only for $263 shipped….about the same price as the Shop Fox Classic shipped with rails.

Thank you for the replies. I’d been hoping someone had an extra fence laying around in their shop and was will to part with it for a reasonable price. I know it’s asking alot but 263.00 is out of my price range. Maybe just wishfull thinking.

I’ve not been able to work since early 2005, bad back surgery, multiple interventions and it just gets worse every day. In December I had a nerve stimulator implant put in. It helps some but I’ll never be able to return to work.

A year ago last April I purchased the bottom end Steel City table saw 35920 It was all I could afford and then some. Dealing with all the medical issues. I just got it set up with the help of a friend a few weeks ago. This fence has a split front rail and no faces on the fence. A fellow Lumberjock was kind enough to send me a set of 50” HTC fence rails for the cost of shipping, however the rails take a Besemeyer style fence with a 2X3” front rail, the Steel City has a 2X2” front rail.

I enjoy doing woodworking. When the pain gets too bad then I just go upstairs. It gives me purpose…

I apologize for the crummy spelling. I can’t find a spell check on here. LOL

Thanks again,
David

Hi Dave,
When I bought my Jet Xacta cabinet saw some years ago I ended up with two Xacta fences. One I put away as a spare, but did remove one of the UHMW faces from it to use in a project awhile back. The other face is still on the fence. If you’re interested, I would be glad to part with the unused fence for $20 plus shipping. Let me know.

Dave – FWIW, I’m running a Jet Exacta II on my Shop Fox rails, and am really happy with it. John’s offer sounds pretty good to me….good luck!
