Does anyone own the Vega 40” fence.I need to know what the measurement is of the front guide bar from the right side of the blade to the end.I am trying to figure out if I will have enough room to install this fence my shop is a little narrow and I have other bench tools around so I dont want to have a situation where I have to move the table saw to get around it.Thanks for any help.

I’m going to guess it’s about 48” but I don’t own it. However, you can cut the rail down. It’s just hollow steel tube. If it’s too long, you can lop a few inches off with a hacksaw. Won’t effect function, just give less capacity. Another option would be to drill/tap new mounting holes in your table to shorten up the capacity on the right and give a little extra capacity on the left.

I received my new fence from ShopFox.I have that installed and started building the work station from plywood on hand it will eventually get covered with veneer I have here are some pictures of what I have done so far.

I will build doors for all the cabinets and drawers for the cabinet that is not built yet.The top will be built out of plywood and covered with laminate,thats it for now.

Have your say...
