So I have a delta t2 2”x2” tube rails and I’m looking to buy a biesemeyer fence. I know the biesemeyer fits a 2”x3” rail. Is there an easy way to make the biesemeyer fit this rail?

Thanks

Rip the 2” x 2” rail down the middle, and weld 1” of steel on the top and bottom to give you 3”. Of course it’d cost a bit, and would be a total PITA, and I’m not serious!

You might get away with a 1” wood spacer on the T2 rail or the Biesemeyer t-square, but I’ve never done it or seen it done.

get some square steel tubing from the box store
and screw it on your rails
drill thru both together to pilot hole for threads

drill bigger hole in front to pass screw thru

In my opinion, it would not be easy to do. It could be done, but not without a lot of time and effort.

I was missing the rails on a previous saw, so I bought this off of Ebay, great deal for my biesemeyer fence head.

I added a 3 by 3 angle iron that I sanded down, primed and painted jet black to install the front rail.
