I just picked up a sawstop T-square fence and of course ill have to drill holes since they dont line up with my saw. Could someone possibly measure how far below the table the front and rear rails sit (top of the rail). Also, if the blade is centered between the miter slots or if its offset one way or the other and how much. thanks in advance

On the Professional model, the rail is about 1/16” below the surface of the top.
The center of the blade is about 5 5/16” from the left miter slot, and 5 1/16” from the right.

Kent, thanks for the measurements. they will help me get my rails positioned correctly on the first try. All the instructions for the fence say is to use the tapped holes in the table. Very convenient for sawstop owners but not if your trying to adapt to a different saw
