I bought this saw several years ago, it has being working like charm but it came with ho fence.
Because of the very good reviews I bought a Kreg precision fence.
I never liked it and it never performed well for me especially for correcting the blade drift and for re-sawing.

A while ago I saw a similar table on YouTube, so I made one.


The fence can be locked in position

This is how I mounted the new table to the original one.

Last weekend I re-sawed 8” white oak with this fence , it performed very well.
I am very happy with it.

Wow, that’s awesome. Do you have a riser kit on that bandsaw?

What did you use for the top surface?.
I work for a large pharmaceutical company which trows all kind of stuff away. I check the dumpsters quite often.
I found this piece of hard plastic material that I used for the table.
I have no idea what materiel it exactly is.
It just looks right for the application.

Actually I’m slowy but surely weeding my shop from any HF and Ryobi power tools, I think HF is better then Ryobi anyway still have some items but as long as they are still kicking they get to stay. :) So far what I have left is the DC and a 4” belt sander on HF, a planer biscuit and 1/4” hand router on the Ryobi side, heck it’s getting to where you can’t even find replacement parts for the Ryobi.

You really have a very nice table for that band saw! How many days did you work for it?
