Here is an idea for those who have the original Biesemeyer fences. As you know, the fence surfaces are made of Baltic birch which is attached with screws to the body of the fence and a laminate glued over it which conceals the screws. Replacing those surfaces are a pain, as you have to remove the laminate in order to get to the screws. What I’m proposing is to use strips of UHMW plastic, 3/8” thick by 3” high by x length and attaching with double stick tape. Any other “slippery” tape could be used, like HDPE ( used for plastic cutting boards) or even nylon. There is also a pressure sensitive tape that could be used in place of the original plywood/laminate, but it would require re-positioning the measure tape. If you go that route, you will have to file the burrs left from the screw holes in the body. I’m in the process of doing this as soon as I order the plastic strips.

What’s the difference if you don’t use it?
Come on, your saw doesn’t have a scratch on it….lol

I like it though. Gives you the ability to use many attachments.

Hahaha. It’s got a lot of scratches now! I have a few projects posted here. I usually clean and polish my tools before the pics too. lol BTW, how come your project pics have been removed? I guess I’ll pm you for the portfolio.
