I have an old “last of the mohican” General 15” bandsaws. I put new bearings in the old girl and she runs pretty well. The only downside is you are limited to about 6” resaw capacity – but I think she is a keeper for me. The factory fence was warped or bent a bit so I want to get her a new fence. I cannot really afford the Driftmaster.

I was looking at the Woodhaven B/S Fence or the PeachTree EZ Square. I see General is also making one under the Excalbur line. Kind of leaning toward the Woodhaven – the other stuff they make seems well designed and nicely assembled. I am assuming this would also be true of their B/S fence.

Do any of you have any feedback on the Woodhaven, EZ Square or the Excalbur?

Over the years, I have pretty much abandoned the use of them.

I prefer to cut to a line, freehand.

Everything else on the band saw uses a sled\jig.

But, I am in to hear what others have to say.
