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.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

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.
