I am in the process of helping a friend rebuild and retrofit an older Whitney 177 16” tablesaw that they bought with no fence or other accessories. I was wondering what everyone’s opinions / preferences were for a precision table saw fence, preferably with a level lock. I am also looking for an overarm blade guard / dust collector and a good quality outfeed table and table saw extension.
The table top measures 53 1/2” wide by 40” deep. We would prefer to extend the tabletop to at least 96” wide and 72” deep so that one can cut a sheet of plywood by themselves.
We were also wondering if there is an accurate DRO system that can be added to the saw for depth and fence width
The restoration is pretty straight forward, but I haven’t done a lot of research into aftermarket table saw accessories so I figured this would likely be the best place to start.
