So I got a machined extruded aluminum rail and mounted it to my stock fence. I had an aluminum rail before but not machined. Locally they wanted too much to machine it. I bought this one and it’s machined on all 4 sides. It is sooooo smooth and flat. Very accurate. I’m happy. I had to drill and tap another hole for the indicator to compensate for the extra thickness. Love it.

It’ll be nice and easy to add accessories to it if needed.

Nice find if I didn’t have a cast iron fence already I’d be looking for one of those.

ScottM – makes it easy to attach jigs and fixtures via the t-tracks in the extrusion and regular extrusion while being pretty accurate on it’s own, is stepped up a notch to near perfection when it’s machined. So now he’s got a dead straight and smooth fence surface with t-tracks built in. Plus he extended it in the front so it gives a little extra fence before the blade to make sure everything is going in straight before it hits the blade which I like a lot!

Thanks for the info. I did notice the extra length but just figured that was simply how long they made it. I get it now. I saw the “form” of the extrusion but didn’t really think about those a T-track. I think my eyes were distracted by the shiny saw under it….:P

Being new to this, I have to ask, where did you buy it and how does it attach to the existing fence?

Thanks,
Jim

Is that actually machined or just an extrusion? Either way, an excellent method to get an ultra-straight fence plus plenty of options for accessories with those slots!

What I really like is the ability to make your fence longer and provide more lead-in area. It’s kind of like a uni-fence on steroids.

I got it from very cool super tools. It attaches to the existing mounting points using t-bolts that I got from them also.

It is machined on all 4 sides. I have one that is not machined and it works fine. I just wanted it ultra straight. Lol. The lead in is sooo much better.
