Hello All

I’m thinking about purchasing the Vega pro 40 table saw fence for my Porter Cable table saw. I have limited space in my shop. Does anyone know the length of the rails? I checked the manufacturer’s website but couldn’t find the info.

The rails are 62.5” long and a the scale, which is fastened to the rail is 40” long. I have this fence on my crapsman 10” contractor saw and it made a world of difference. I very much like mine.

I just purchased an older C’man contractors TS. It came with an upgraded 26” Vega Utility fence. I have not used it yet, so I can’t speak to it’s quality & performance.
I can speak about their customer service, on a one time basis. I contacted them and ask if they could email me an owner’s manual. I recieved that manual, in the mail 3 days later. Of course, they used the opportunity to included glossy brochures of their other products, which I didn’t mind. My point being that they never sold me anything and still, the turn around time was immediate, not in a couple days or when “they got around to it”! I was reasonably impressed.
Just wanted to relay my experience. Good luck with your purchase.

I bought an old Craftsman saw with a Vega U26 fence on it a while back. The fence rails were missing some mounting hardware. The man at Vega was more than helpfull in getting me up and running. Tuned the saw and fence, what a great cutting tool. Cut so much better than my old Craftsman ,I sold the old saw!
I’ve been toying around with the idea of buying thier finger saver for the fence. Anyone have feed back on this?
Anyway you’ll love the acuracy of that fence.

Have your say...
