Topic tags/keywords: table saw fence

Got a Question.
Just got a Delta T2 fence for my Craftsman hybrid TS, the holes line up on the rails, I never remember ever using the fence to the left so does anyone think moving the rails to the right a notch cause any problems ?
It will give me 8” more rip, Ill just move the scale.
Thanks
Mark

First ordered from Amazon week later still didn’t ship, cancelled.
Next ordered from Tool Barn week later didn’t ship. cancelled.
Ordered from Delta CPO on Fri, Shipped Monday, had it Thursday West Coast.
Tool Barn said they were having delays with delta. I just checked Delta CPO out of stock. I think they might not mfg these anymore. good luck .
Great fence, a little deflection though at back of fence

I got an update yesterday from Tool Barn letting me know it’s shipped. Did you have to drill the fence rails to fit your saw? I guess you have the choice to drill the fence or the table?

This HAS to be miles better than the regular Craftsman fence I’ve been dealing with for years. I know there are much better saws out there, but other than the fence, mine has been pretty solid and cuts very well with a replacement blade and zero clearance insert. It’s also the right size for my shop. Not sure what model I have. It’s the contractor saw with the motor hanging off the back and cast iron wings. Got it for free, so I don’t mind throwing a few upgrades at it.

I ordered same fence from Tool Barn for about $180 with shipping. After two week or so delay, I finally got word yesterday it had shipped. I had previously gotten word from Tool Plus that it was discontinued.

Have your say...
