I’ve slowly been getting into woodworking over the past few years. Up until now, I’ve always taken all of my work needing a table saw to a friends house. Well, I moved 100 miles away, so now that option isn’t available. I’m interested in making nice bookcases, cupboards, nightstands, etc, so I bought my own Delta contractor saw.

What I need now is a nice sacrificial fence. Does anybody have any good advice for making one of these. I would prefer to not have to make any permanent changes to my fence system (Delta T2). So, anything that involves drilling the fence surface is not really what I’m looking for.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

The T2 is pretty similar to the Beisemeyer that I have and i have just been getting it set up… I used MDF and Clamped it to the fence… I am sure others have other solutions… I have seen people put the same thing on and counter sink a washer and bolt through the sacrificial fence and the T2 and put another washer and wing nut on the other side so you can remove it fast or reverse it… I have not been willing to drill the 2 holes as of yet and will probably get there eventually.
