I just got a new DW716 miter saw to to replace my old 10” Delta. All these years I had been using a home made fence system with 48” extensions on each side of the saw with a 5” high back for work piece support.
This same design won’t be so easy with the new saw because it has a high back fence that slides outward when you need to tilt the saw.
At work there is simply a piece of 1.5” steel angle iron with adhesive back tape measure stuck to it, and this works fine for most applications. However there is no high back support for anything like crown molding, and using a stop block means a piece of wood and a clamp, rather than a convenient flip stop like you can get.
Any thought? Thanks
