I have contractor Jet with cast iron wings. 52” or 54” rails. We moved and the new shop cannot accommodate that length. Were can I buy shorter rails? I am not in need of a fence, just short rails.

I’d love to trade someone straight up for the short rails, since I cannot seem to find the shorter ones. I think they are 30” rails I need.

Shorter rails are a hacksaw away… just sayin’.

EDIT: That’s the kind of answer you get when you ask it on a DIY-type forum. :-D

I see a hacksaw in your future.

A nice good old hacksaw, or a circ saw with a freud diablo steel demon saw blade… Enjoy :P
Or you could just get some at busy bee or somewhere…

If your fence is the Xacta or Xacta II, you should find that it’s compatible with the rails from a commercial Biese, Shop Fox Classic, PM Accufence, and a few other full size rail systems…..maybe you could find someone to trade with. Cutting them down is always a possibility, but it seems a shame to do it if there are alternatives.

I’m personally looking for a 54” fence for my Jet TS. Unfortunately, I have the older style Jet 54” aluminum fence and have nothing worthwhile to trade.

I agree that if you found a 30” fence it would be better to sell your 54” (to me—and for cheap), but, in my neck of the woods such things have been scarce lately.

Give it some time, then cut it down yourself. <sigh>

Too bad you are in Ohio. I am in Atlanta. I have a set of front and rear Bies rails you can have for free if you want them.
