Ordered a new Delta T2 fence a couple weeks ago not knowing how difficult it would be to install on my Delta direct drive ts(34-670). Didn’t take much, just some new hardware in a few spots and some hole relocation. Still have a few things to change, otherwise she’s done. Finally!

Kevin, did you find the instructions with the manual adequate enough for the install? I’m thinking of doing the same upgrade on my 34-670. What are you finding that you have to change?

Thanks for the post.

Daniel, the instructions are pretty much useless. The holes on the saw do not line up with the holes on the fence rails. I clamped the front rail to the saw and marked the holes that way. I lined up the end of the rail with the end of the extension on the left side of the table( later removed the steel extensions and replaced with mdf). Two problems. The table on the 34-670 is only about 22” deep, the fence is ment for 27” table. I mounted the rear rail the same as the front. The fence it self is higher on the front than it is in the back. Currently i use a scrap 3/4” chunk and it levels out good,also slides decent. Sorry it took so long to get back to you, hope this helps. If you need more details let me know, i could send pics too.

What size fence is it? Where did you get it? I have the same saw and the fence is busted and it didnt come with the extension wings. I can complain though I traded and old weight machine I didnt use for it so it was basically free.

I have this fence. I went to the iron yard and bought longer rails and now I have 54 inches on the right side of the blade.
I don’t make cuts that big but it gives me a place to slide my fence out of the way when I need it gone. The unfinished cabinet you are looking in the photo is a fliptop for my planer. The rails are attached to that cabinet otherwise the weight of the long rails will tip the saw
When I bought this fence a few years ago the rails were offered in two different lengths I bought the smaller ones. Then last summer I tried to buy the larger rails but they were not available.
I was under the impression that this fence was no longer available. Didn’t delta acquire Biesemeyer or something like that?

usnret, as far as i know you can only get the 30” T-2 fence now, fence it self fits 27” deep table. The front rail is 2” angle, and 2” tube stock basically. rear rail is 1 1/2” angle. I have heard of someone doing what you want to do with that material. I bought mine from toolsplus.com for $144. Jerry54 and Paul, very cool saws, nice job!

These fences are great. Just finished putting mine on an old Craftsman 113 that I have totally “Frankensaw”ed. Love it. Works great. Can’t beat the quality for the price. Enjoy yours.

Kevin,

Great job!

I have the same saw. I would some more detail about how you adapted the 27” fence to the 22” table.

Thanks, Rex
