What to do with an old T/S fence?

I just replaced the fence on my Craftsman TS with the Delta T2. I’m one of those guys who hate to get rid of any of my tools and can usually find another use for them, or know someone who could use them, but a TS fence system, it’s a challenge. So I’ll put the Question to all you LJ

What you could with your old T/S fence?

You could make a hat, or a broche, or a pterdactyl!

OK, you’ve got me…I got nothing.

Take it apart and use it as a straight edge or a guide for routing? That is if it’s straight.

Tom – notice I didn ‘t call you Shirley…. you owe me a monitor cleaning. The tea stains on this one are now courtesy of you –
Mike – perhaps you could weld it to a wobble head dado and use it as a shop defense system? Just in case you don’t have one there are plenty of them ‘around’...

Why not just get rid of it? I wrote this in response to your question.

You could either use it for a router fence or send it to the salvage yard. Recycle, reuse, re…I forgot.

Mike,

I upgraded my fence as well, and would say recycle your if you intend to keep the saw. Otherwise, if the intention is, as is mine, to upgrade the saw later and you will be able to use the new fence (I have a Vega and believe I will be able to and want to keep it.), then put it in storage in the attic or some other out of hte way place. I have a small attic space over my garage/shop and that is where my fence is patiently waiting to be used by someone else when I sell the saw.

After reading everyone’s suggestions I found the perfect solution for that old fence, they went in the trashcan
