Topic tags/keywords: t2 delta fence handle fix magnet

I finally got time to get into the shop and fix my fence handle problem. Not much to it but it may be of interest to some who do not like the handle the way it is from the mfg. Hope the pictures tell it all. The center nut swivels as it needs to because it is free on the all thread. larry

I forgot to mention, there is very little room for error on the length of the all thread. larry

Thanks for sharing the write up and associated pictures.

Incredible how a simple magnet makes such a wonderful difference

I just put a rare earth magnet on the handle bar and it works fine.

I posted this fix in a post on 01-28-2012 . Not sure why my PM answer to EndGrained ended up as a new post but if it helped that is fine. larry

LOL. I sure did miss the time stamp.
Your fix is very nice, and you really did a good job with it.
I am just to lazy to do something like that.
The handle falling is very annoying though.
I taped the magnet to the handle with electrical tape to fix mine.

Chashint, there is always an easier way to do something, just need someone to dream it up. I know what you mean about the handle it drove me wild but others didn’t seem to mind it. I never thought of taping it to the handle.

Glad we are not all out of the same cookie cutter or life would be boring. larry

Question, when locking down your fence how far down does your handle go. It seems as though my handle doesn’t get past half way.

That’s about how mine hangs without the magnet to hold it up.
The magnet holding up the handle makes the fence glide more easily across the saw and if I am moving the saw it keeps the handle from getting rammed into the other stuff I am McGyvering all the stuff up against the wall.

Mine locks at half way but if i press harder it will at times lock farther down. I don’t know why, I just have noticed that it does that. larry
