I am installing a Delta t2 fence kit on my old Craftsman contractor saw I just recently refurbished. I have read that most people drill all new holes and make it so the tape measure is there starting reference point. I have also heard others say that they used one existing hole and drill the remaining.
I test fit the rail on my saw tonight and using 1 existing hole mocked it up on the saw. If I use the existing hole and just drill out the fence or the table to use the remaining holes I would have a 35.5” right side cut and a 6-7” cut on the left side. I
I can’t remember in the last 10 years when I have ever cut anything on the left side of the blade.
The other question is people seem to reference 7/8” from the top of table to the top of the rail bracket top. I mocking my unit up came up with 3/4” using said existing hole.
I would really like to get someones input who has done this adaptation already.
Thank You for your consideration.
