Jump on it! if your looking for a fence upgrade, the vega is now the cheapest (since the t2 went missing). Ive also heard that it bolts right on to oldish craftsman saws.

I would jump on that in a second!

I paid twice that for my 50 inch and would again. Awesome fence. I bolted to an old craftsman also.

Here’s one installed on my old craftsman. It worked great.

Great fence and a good deal. I used to have one on a saw I had. I really liked mine.

The T2 I put on my 80’s Craftsman made a world of difference. I’m bet the Vega will do same for you.

I just won one on Ebay for $169. New in box, packaging slightly damaged. Waiting for it to arrive so I can fit it to my saw!

GOT IT. Well I picked it up today.
Brand new in the box with the instructions and pieces.

Thanks for the advice folks.

I plan on making a YouTube video of the installation since no one has made one.

Stay tuned.
