Hello i am new to this forum and need a replacement fence for a Craftsman 10” table saw model 137.218760 and been looking at pictures on the net of the Delta T2 Fence and wonder if it is adaptable to my saw as the infeed or front face is not 90 degree to the table top but rather it is angled at a 45 degree and the old fence rides on this bevel.

If this fence will not work then what else do you suggest? Sure need a better fence than the old one!

Thanks in advance for the help.

I can’t speak specifically to the Delta T2, but in general after-market fences are clones of the Biesemeyer design, and can be retro-fit to most saws with some tinkering.

I put a Shop Fox Classic on my Jet 708100 (the cast iron table on the Jet has a front bevel) last year … see: http://lumberjocks.com/reviews/840 . It was well worth the effort, and I have always felt like I got a fair deal.

Hey, funny you should ask- my friend just priced out some fences for himself and we were just discussing it today. He had priced out a Delta Biesmeyer fence for himself, with the 30” rails and the 42” fence body. It came out to $330 altogether, which we concluded was a great deal, considering that Rockler sells the Vega fence for $326.00. You have to check out this worksheet from beismeyer first though, because there are some measurements that you have to stay between.

As for the T2 fence, it’s ok. It’s no beismeyer, but it does the job. For a couple extra bucks we decided the beismeyer was the way to go.

The T2 can be found from Tools-Plus for $150 (+ $6.50 s/h).
