I am looking to purchase a used Biesemeyer fence.

I have decided to upgrade the fence on my old Craftsman 113. series table saw. I ordered some new guide rails from Delta and they are ready to go on, but I am going to wait on installing the guide rails until I find a fence.

If anyone out there has a Biesemeyer fence (or similar t-square style that would work on Biesemeyer guide rails) please hit me up. (message me for my email or cell phone #).

Some alternatives:

The Delta T3 is $183 from HD, and is a solid choice at a fair price for a contractor saw.

The Shop Fox Original fence w/standard rails is also a good buy at ~ $150 to your door.

The Craftsman Aligna-rip fence should be a direct bolt on. Not quite as nice as the Delta, but costs less.

If you’re up to spending more, the Vega U26 or Pro 50 are both good value in a very nice fence.

I have a brand-new BIESEMEYER 78-919B T2 Fence that I ordered for my Jet saw, and unfortunately it doesn’t fit. If you’re interested, here’s link to the amazon listing, they list it at $224. I’d be willing to sell it for $100 plus whatever shipping would be to your address. It comes with all the hardware (including the measurement windows which are not attached yet).

The Delta T3 is the same fence that comes on the Delta 36-725 saw. It’s one of the best features.
If you already have Delta rails installed, maybe you could locate just the fence part for cheaper.

If you are in the PDX area, I’ve got a T3 available that was on my Craftsman 113. Just want it out of my garage, so any decent offer takes it.

Which rails and guide tube did you purchase? The commercial Biesemeyer fence system used larger rails and tube than the home shop version, which is essentially what the newer T2/T3’s are. It might limit you in what you can put on there. Also curious why you would just buy the rails/tube new and then look for a used fence… most used fences you will run across will be complete with them included as part of the deal.

Cheers,

Brad is right. I actually have the commercial Biesemeyer that I posted above because I bought it as a set (fence and rails), but none of it worked with my Jet hybrid saw. So I sold the rails to comeone who wanted them and now I’m left with just the fence. It’s larger than a standard-sized fence, so you would need to have a table large enough to handle it…

That works out perfectly for me. My rails are for the commercial style just like you have. I just sent you a message with my cell phone number. I will definitely take the fence and can pay you today. Give me a shout when you get time. Thanks!
