I realize that this was a popular subject a few years ago…
I was able to purchase a Delta T2 30 fence on Ebay at a super good price. The unit appears to be nearly new and I suspect it was a store return. So now I’m ready to upgrade the fence from the piece of crap original fence. From what I read, there are two options on installing the front tube. Option #1 is to use the new rails after re-drilling holes. With that option the fence tube sets a tad too high to use the miter gauge. Option #2 is to use the Ridgid original front rail and to shim the tube up from the original rail.
I’m wanting to do #2. Can anyone that has upgraded their R4511 in that fashion have any suggestions? What did you use to shim the tube and how high of a shim? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I can see it’s night and day difference in comparing the two fence systems!!
