.....and more accurate cuts. I’m thinking about upgrading my table saw fence. I have a Jet hybrid tablesaw, and I’ve never really been satified with the fence that was furnished with the saw. The first thing that popped in my head… in big bold letters was… BIESEMEYER. It occured to me that the only reason this popped in my head was because of the big bold letters, not because I knew anything about the fence itself. I’m hoping I can get some opinions from everyone on the fences that are on the market today. Thanks in advance for your help.

I use an Incra Fence the TS III and I use it with the router on the side of the table saw.

I have the Biesemeyer fence on my saw and have been happy with it. Accurate, easy to adjust, and easy to install/remove from the saw.

I have a Biesemeyer, its my second one. They are currently on my Delta’ table saws.

I have no complaints.

I also have a Jet table saw with there standard stock fence. I wish I had it some where other than on that machine. Its not a very accurate and I think built rather cheaply. The reason I have never changed it is simple. I use that machine only for a dedicated dado. I also built my own fence extension to go with the stock one.

I’m sure there are many good fences out there. A lot of it comes down to personal choice and what experiences and they have been exposed to.
