I was at lows today and was looking at the delta 36-725 TS. I really liked the saw but I don’t care for the split rail fence. So here is the deal a few years back I purchased a delta t2 fence for my old junk craftsman saw. I was thinking about putting the T2 on the new delta saw. Do you guys think that will work or will it be a nightmare. Heck I already have the t2 might as well use it plus it is a great dead on fence. I can also put the delta fence back on the old saw and use it for cutting junk wood up for the fire pit

The T2 should be doable…..sounds like a good idea. It might even be a direct bolt on.

I’d do the same.

Thanks guys , If I end up buying this saw im going to give it a try, I wont be out of anything but some time if it don’t work. From just eyeing the two fences they look pretty much the same. May have to use a spacer on back rail to set it out a inch or two , delta 2 might be a bit longer

From what I can tell, the Delta 36-5000 does pretty much what you’ve proposed. For an extra $400, you get a slightly bigger motor, and a single piece rail (I believe the fence is the T3….successor to the T2). There might be a table extension on the right too.
