Nice deal. I sort of wish I put a vega on my 113 rather than the Delta T2. The vega reportedly interfaces and installs easier.

Yeah, but the T2 is $175 and the Vega is $250

I had a Vega on my Craftsman and loved it. I actually prefer it to the fence on my PM2000 for the micro-adjustment.

I’d buy it over the delta in a heartbeat!

Yeah the T2 is great. I love it. certainly beats the hell out of the useless, stock fence on my 113. However, installing the T2 on the 113 was a little bit tricky, requiring a lot of measuring and drilling. It was a fairly easy process, but it also would have been easy to screw-up too.
OTOH, the Vega is a direct bolt-on to a 113, looks to be a lot more beefy, and has some additional features. It is an extra $75-100 over the T2, but the extra cost is certainly justified. I especially like the micro-adjuster and the pre-drilled holes for attaching sub-fences.
No regrets on my end. The T2 is good and fit within my budget at the time ($158 shipped). But if I were buying a fence today, the Vega would have been my instant choice.

while i see them at two retailers for that approximately that price, my understanding has been that they are becoming increasingly difficult to find at prices like that. or have i been misinformed?
