Topic tags/keywords: craftsman table saw fence

Hi Everyone…long time reader but first time poster. I have a Craftsman Model craftsman 22124 Table Saw and need a new rip fence for it. It was made by Orien or Steel City Tool Works that is no longer in business and Sears doesn’t carry the replacement part anymore. I’ve searched online but haven’t found any for sale. Does anyone know of another fence that would work on this saw? It’s a Biesemyer fence. It looks like the Biesemeyer T square fences may work. Does anyone know? Thanks for the help!

-Allen!

There are several replacement fences that will work Besiemeyer is one, Delta T3 is another. Most if not all will need some new holes drilled but cast isn’t hard to drill.

I have the Shop Fox Bies clone on my saw. Works very well, holds settings, and has a one piece rail system.
Came on my Grizz 0444Z contractor saw (I know. Boo on contactor saws, but mine is mine.) Might be a fence system that ya wanna look at.

The stock fence was a Biesemeyer Commercial fence. Most aftermarket fences should work, though some may require drilling the cast iron. The Delta T3 that John mentioned is a great bang for the buck. I’d also look into the Vega, Shop Fox Classic, HTC, Jet Xacta, Saw Stop T-Glide. Do you have any of the stock fence, or do you need the whole system?

Thanks guys…I have everything except for the sliding fence. I was hoping to find something I could use with the existing rail and not have to buy and install an entire new system.

Thanks! I haven’t seen that one from very super cool tools. That’s an option. I just found this one on amazon that I think may work. Does anyone have any knowledge of these?

The reviews on the new Biesemeyer fence are terrible. The Saw Stop T-Glide fence might work…worth checking into – $229 https://sawstop.3dcartstores.com/T-Glide-Fence-Assembly--Professional-Series-II-_p_196.html

Just don’t try to buy it at a Woodcraft store, or one of the employees will get all self-righteous.

A Vega fence will fit your saw.

I put a Vega Pro 40 on my 1977 Craftsman table saw. It was cheaper than the one I linked, but it sorta dominated my saw. However, it worked great. It made the saw operate like a new one.

Here are a couple of pics of my saw with the Vega Pro 40 installed. Bolted right up.
Hope this helps.

I put an Incra TSIII ( old model-there is a newer one now with the lead screw adjustment) on my old Craftsman, and then moved it to my new Griz. The table should be 27” from front to back on the C man, so an Incra will work. Kinda pricy, but in the long run, well worth it. Most people either love the fence or hate it. I happen to love mine. Super accurate and repeatable with the ability to micro adjust the fence by 1/1,000 with the micro adjuster. Like I said, a lot of money, but it will allow you to take your woodworking to another level. It might or might not be worth it to you; check it out. Good Luck, Work Safely and Have Fun!
