For those who have a SawStop and have added the Incra TS System, what type of fencing material did you use to ‘face’ the Incra’s fence? Also, any recommendations in the installation? Thanks.

I have used the Incra TS system and have never had a need to put a face on it. Is there some reason a Saw Stop requires it or is it just something you want to add?

If the blade on the SawStop touches the metal fence (while running or winding down), it will trip the brake and require a new brake and saw blade. I’ve heard were a brake was activated because of static and being too close to a metal fence…hence the need for an auxiliary fence.
