Topic tags/keywords: tip

Would like to say thanks to all the folks here who have previously installed the Delta T2 fence system on their saws, specifically the saws that did not permit instant boltup and fittings.

Even though my saw is a Delta, it didn’t mean it was to fit right up. First thing I found out was that there is the standard table saw depth of 27”, this appears to be commonly called a contractor saw and I figured thats what I had.. Not to be, my Delta 34-740 has a table depth of 22”.. Secondly the bolt holes did not even remotely come close.

So whats a guy to do, after he already bought the T2 fence?? Hmm, after alot of research via this forum and the rest of the internet, combined with a call to Delta Tech services, I figured that I could make it fit and work..

That it did….. I finished my install today, it works mint and I am here to say; I am really glad I made it work. Sure do love the thing..

Well the Delta T2 fence info was sure lacking on models it fits. But with a little bit of inginuety, careful measuring, drilling & easy relocation of a key component. It works as advertised.. All I had to do was find “Zero” on the tabletop, redrill new holes in both mount rails and then move the rear clamp in 4.75” & remount it…

Awesome fence for the money!!

Thought about that when writing the post, at the time I figured there were quite a few pix of this fence available. If anything in particular you would like to see, I would be glad to take pix and post.

Rod – Yours is the first post where I’ve seen someone add this fence to that saw, or even this type of saw….the vast majority are full size 27” deep saws. It’d be really helpful to others if you could post some pics of the installation.

Hello Rod!

Please help out a guy who’s in the EXACT same situation that you’re talking about here. I really need to understand what you had to do in order to make this fence work with a 22” deep Super Ten 34-740. Could you provide me with MORE DETAILED information on this installation procedure? I’m stuck and need to make these 2 pieces of equipment work well together.

Thank you!

I’ve got an old 34-600 saw, I wonder if I could do the same thing to my saw?

Guys,

I have not been active online for sometime, sorry… I would love to post some pix, but I am in process of relocating/moving and shop is tore down.. The mod is really easy, just involves drilling new holes and countersinking main table angle iron. And relocating fence tab attachment.. Since I have to saw all tore down and will have to reassemble, I will take good pix at that time..

Please keep on me to do this and send me a pm so I have a reminder…

Well, I managed to get the Beisemeyer on my 1960 34-600. Totally different saw now, made a replacement extension table. Also none of the holes lined up, I had to drill new ones and the alignment was slightly to the left of center according to the zero notch on the mounting angle iron. Also had to put some washers in between the angle iron and the box beam that the fence slides on, but it works great. Has a fair amount of resistance when sliding even though I’ve made all the adjustments for tension, alignment, and waxed it. Not sure how easy it’s supposed to be but it’s easy enough.

Have your say...
