I will be purchasing a SS in the near future.
I now have a Unisaw with a Vega fence. The Vega has some nice accessories I use: thin stock pusher, hold downs, anti kickback roller, etc.

Does anyone know if SS fence can use the accessories?

Are SS fence faces still non-replaceable, or has this changed? I see some older comments about slight gripes about plywood fence problems on SS, but haven’t seen any recent comments.

Are fences on SS Pro and Industrial the same?

I have never used a Biesmeier type fence. Is there any micro adjust feature? I use the one on my Vega regularly. Is it something I won’t miss?

Thanks for your input.

Dave, I’m sorry to say I don’t know about whether you can use your Vega accessories on the SS fence, and I’m not sure what you mean by “non-replaceable”.

I believe the fences on the Industrial and Professional saws are the same fence. No micro-adjustment feature (that would be nice), but it’s a good fence, adjusts smoothly, and I’ve no complaints with it so far (pretty new to the saw, though).

Hope this helps,

Why would they be non replaceable? Vega may make one that fits Sawstop. After all they rails system bolts on as with any other saw. Remember the fence for the Industrial is longer as its a 30” table.

Have your say...
