Hi,

I have a Powermatic 64A contractors saw. After months of fussing, it’s finally set up pretty nicely. The problem is the soft plastic face on the fence now has soft spots. Can anyone recommend the best material for a fence face? I was thinking of Corian, but I need to rout T-slots in the back and I’m not sure Corian will allow for that.

Corian will work if you have it on hand but
if you want to buy something UHMW may
be a better choice.

On my 64A I had the same problem. The problem with corian is it may not be flat,I tried granite and it didn’t
work for that reason.Solved the problem with 80-20. Go to the woodwisper chanel on utube and look
at his commets at SUPERCOOL TOOLS.
