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!!
