Topic tags/keywords: grizzly g0771 vega fence question

I am considering purchasing the Vega fence system for my table saw. I was wondering if anyone can tell me where I will mount the power switch or what I have to do to mount the switch.

The power switch is currently mounted to the underside of the factory front fence rail. Looking at the Vega fence rail, it seems to be a round bar and from what few pictures of saws with the Vega fence the power switch seems to be mounted to the underside of the cast iron wing.

Does the Vega fence account for “fence mounted power switches”?

Chef,
I can’t offer much on the Vega, but as far as after market fences go, I had the Accusquare on an old craftsman contractors saw, and it worked great. It may be worth considering as this is a square style rail, and may solve some of your problems.

I put the Vega fence on my Grizzly G0715, which also had the rail mounted switch. I just cut a piece of angle iron to use as a mounting bracket and drilled a couple holes. I’ll try to remember to take a picture later tonight and post it here.

I mounted a vega pro 50 on my older rigid and love it. I ended up attaching a section of incra t-track under the rail to mount my switch.

Thank you all so much, it never occured to me to use an angle brackett or t-slot both great ideas. Again thank you.

Here is the picture of mine. I’m pretty sure one of the holes in the extension wing was already there so I just had to drill one more. I painted the angle iron and bolts black so that it matched better.

(not sure why the picture is showing up sideways)

Thank you for the information, I ended up using a piece of angle iron and mounting the switch to the underside of the table using the fence rail bolts. Works great.

Have your say...
