I can tell you that the byesmeyer fence on my table saw is worth that much to me. I just googled and found the fifty inch model listed at $400.00
You don’t say what size it is, but if you are buying one, look at the web to see how much you would pay new. If you are selling it, well do the same, except look at what others are paying.

Definitely….it’s the gold standard of t-square style fences.

Well, I picked up the Biesemeyer fence today. The main rail with the tape on it is roughly 74 inches in length. Does anyone know exactly what I bought? Thinking it is a 50” instead of a 30”. Gave the guy his $200 and got the heck out of there. It is NIB. Beautiful fence.

DANG! I hate when I miss out on a deal I can really use!

Why aren’t these ever for sale near Phoenix? I’d gladly pay $200 for one. (Need it too)

Good score!

Congratulations! This looks like the same fence that came with my Craftsman 22124. It is a super fence.

Oh I have a similar question. I just acquired an old unisaw with 52” unifence but recently saw a biesemeyer 52” fence on craigslist for 225. Was wondering if I should go ahead and grab it?

Congrats, Dan. Nice score!

Joe, the Unifence is just as good as the Biese; they’re just different. Go with what fits you best. The Uni is much more adjustable (fence extrusion can be moved fore/aft and used in normal vertical position or flipped to low-profile position for cutting thin stock) but isn’t the greatest for using fence-mounted jigs/fixtures unless you buy a third-party fence extrusion. The Biese lacks the Uni’s adjustability but is a great platform for fixtures and sacrificial fences. If you do much work with the fence to the left of the blade, the Biese wins there as it’s ready to go right out of the box. With the Uni, you’d have to unmount the extrusion and remount it on the right side of the body.

In your shoes, I’d stick with the Unifence.
