Ok Im all set to buy a new 52” fence for my King contractors saw, but am undecided between the delta uni-fence for 359.00 or the align-a-rip from Bussy Bee for 239.00( A biesemeyer clone) Niether will directly bolt on to my saw but I’m just not sure if spending the extra money is going to make that much of a difference. Money saved could be another tool lol!!

If your current fence is giving you a lot of issues then I would say its worth the money to get a better one. If your current fence works well enough then I would probably use the money to get other things.

I looked at the busy bee and it looks like a good fence system. If you spend the money for a good fence be sure to keep your old stuff in case you come across a good deal on a cabinet saw you can switch your new fence over. $360 is a lot of money to put into a contractor saw in my opinion when you can buy almost any used contractor for that price. Just my opinion.

If $360 is in your budget, I would seriously consider the Incra TS-LS for just a bit more. I’ve used a lot of fences over the years and nothing’s like it. I don’t think I could function anymore without it.

EDIT: Oops, I missed the 52” part of your post. The 52” Incra is considerably more, but still well worth it. Not sure about putting it on a contractor saw, though …
