Kinda strange that my old (‘50,s) Magna/ShopSmith BS has xy axis miter slots that allow me to use the same fence setup. It is ashame that the new saws don’t have the same design. I just didn’t have to add the ply table.

Good post, I like this setup, now I just need a bandsaw, LOL.

Len,

Well that looked relatively straight forward, no frills, whistles or bells, but functional, that’s the key.

Thanks for sharing. – Len

Better than most factory fences for adjustability on the drift I like it.
