I recently bought an old Delta 34-341 carpenter cabinet saw and found a deal on a complete unifence. I bought a hardware kit from Delta (pt # 422277250022) the kit does not look like it has any of the correct bolt`s & nut`s to install the fence properly. I bought some T bolts and nuts and the fence is attached but it does not seem right. I dont want to damage the aluminum rail by getting it too tight. if anyone has any ideas that would help i would appreciate any advise. thank you Beebop (Mike Fisher)

What doesn’t seem right about it? It would be pretty hard to damage that rail by overtightening the bolts, though I suppose you could put some deflection in it. Is the kit you bought a generic install kit, or was that Delta’s specific kit for that saw? I had a Delta 34-444 (slightly later model) contractor saw with a Unifence and really loved it. As I recall, the rail simply bolted to the extensions and saw front with hex bolts (big ‘uns) It (the rail) did support the right extension table somewhat. I don’t recall any T-bolts being needed. The extrusion is sized to hold the head of whatever size bolts those are….my current Unifence is the same way (sold that contractor saw).

Thank`s for the reply Fred, I tore in to it this afternoon and what appear`s to be the correct bolt`s were in the kit. the hardware kit was a Delta and came from Delta.I bolted it to the extension`s not sure how to bolt it directly to the main table since the two holes are threaded that the original fence tubes were bolted to. so far it seems good and tight. I will try running some wood through it tomorrow.thank`s for the advice Fred.
