I have recently purchased an older Delta band saw (American Made) and would like to add a rip fence. I have located two sources, on line, for fences that will fit my saw. The first at Mikes Tools is a Delta brand with a “clamping” design clamping to a steel angle on the front and back of the band saw table. The second design is a Kreg brand that is only supported on a steel angle at the front (feed side) of the saw. My fear is that the Kreg brand would flex due to only being supported on one side of the saw. If this happened cuts would not be true and accurate.
I’m looking for opinions out there in the wood working world as to which fence I should purchase and maybe some suggested sources. Thanks for any comments you might wish to make on my questions

Take a look at the Carter magnetic fences. They work real well. Their guide systems are great also.

Here is a second vote for the Carter fence. I put one on my Powermatic and it works like a charm.
