While I have a regular tablesaw in the shop, I also have one of those “job-site” saws. During the course of several moves, the fence came up missing. I looked around for a fence to add on to the saw. I wound up making my own. Not that hard,really. I needed a cleat to register the fence, and a long straight section to guide things on the saw with.
A triangle, made from plywood, with a “factory-edge”, was added to the hardwood cleat. I lined up the the edge with a miter slot, and clamped the cleat in place. A couple screws fastened the cleat in place. A 1×2 was then added along the factory edge to guide things along.
A couple of “C” clamps fixes the fence in place. If I need a guide for the Circular saw, or a router (dados), I can clamp this fence as needed.
While not a “precision” fence, it does alright for what I do. Take your time lining up the edge with the miter slot, and you should have a nice, easyto use fence.
