Topic tags/keywords: delta t2 delta fence locking lever

When I put the lever up on my new T2 fence it just falls right back down and I have to hold it up to move the fence. Not nice. Is this acutally the way it is made or am I missing a part of some sort. If you have had the same problem how did you fix it? larry

You can try a magnet or a properly sized rubber grommet to hold it up.

I’ve never paid much attention, but I think that’s the way it is. I’ll check it the next time I’m in the shop, but I think I just put my thumb under the level to hold it up while adjusting the fence.

I’ve had that fence for 5 years now and it’s been that way since I bought it. I guess I just got used to it :-)

Mine is a year old and has been that way from day one.

Well, that sure answers my question…thanks guys. I will work on something now that I know I’m not missing a part. I’m not sure but the handle seems pretty light so a magnet may not work as it may be pot metal. I may just slip a piece of foam pipe insulation over it. They make the kind that opens and has sticky on it to close it again. That should wedge it between the fence sides. larry

The handle on my Biesemeyer fence has a magnet on the upper surface to hold it upright. It is not a rare-earth magnet, so it is just enough to hold it and very easy to release.

I’ll stay with the embedded magnet myself.

I have the same fence, it behaves the same way. I don’t worry about it
