I own a craftsman table saw Model No. 113.29943 and I want to put a better fence on it. My search landed me here and I came across the following two DIY Fence projects:
1- Hutch’s DIY fence made out of extruded aluminum. (http://lumberjocks.com/Hutch/blog/2740)
2- Jeo Emenaker’s DIY fence using angle irons and square tubing at: http://joe.emenaker.com/Table-Saw%20Fence/Building%20Your%20Own%20T-Square%20Style%20Table-Saw%20Fence.htm
I, of course, want to go with the cheaper option. Have people here built any of the above fences? Do you know which one is cheaper and easier to build? Which one is more accurate?
If there is a better design, I would appreciate if you can guide me to it. Also, if an after market fence can be bought for about the same price it would take to do DIY, please guide me to that.
I would really appreciate your help on this.
