I’ve tried various ways to mount an auxiliary fence to my Delta Unifence , but just have not found a good way to mount/clamp it on to the odd shape of the Unifence. Any thoughts or ideas of how to do this without drilling in the Unifence would be appreciated.

Drill two wholes in the auxiliary fence, install T-bolts in the T-track place the fence over the top and use some star knobs to tighten it down. You could actually make the holes in the aux. fence slots for adjustment.

I use these, http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=17821&filter=Rockler%20Outlet they work well as long as the holes you drill for them to slip into are tight.

I use the same clamps as space patrol but it seems the handles get in the way when tightning?? Love the unifence but like everyone else have a challenging time afixing jigs etc.

This isn't the cheapest solution, though it is cheaper than a complete replacement. I have one and feel like I now have the best of both worlds when it comes to fences.
