my guys broke our unifence. It was a user error that caused the break, otherwise it would have never happened. I had the part welded for 10.00 but recently the weld broke. I checked ereplacements.com but the part is listed as on back order. In the recent past I have ordered parts on back order and it took a long time to get those parts. I really cannot wait an extensive period of time for the part.
The advice I request is:
Should I try and repair the fence, maybe even JB weld will work? I need to be back up and running by around Wednesday at the latest. The JB weld might just fix the part and last long enough to buy me some time. Then I could order the part and still use the table saw until the part comes in.
Or should I drop 200 or 300 dollars on a new fence. I only need a 30” fence, though if I bought a new fence I probably should look at 50” just to have the capacity. We actually only use the unisaw for ripping solid wood and cutting dados. I really don’t like looking for things to spend money on, and it seems I might be just looking for an excuse to get a brand new fence.
So any advice is appreciated. Thanks, Jerry
