Question: Are you familiar with this fence? If so, please help me.
Earlier today I retrofitted a King Industrial (KC10-GC) table saw with the Delta T3 fence and rail system. The project went smoothly as the instruction manual write up was pretty straight forward and the associated reference figures were clear. All the necessary adjustments as outlined in the manual have been completed. The manual does not contain a parts list or an associated diagram.
As is, I’m not content with the ‘play’ between the fence and the guide bar. When the fence is moved along the bar it binds unless I pull it back towards me. Additionally, the lock handle will not stay in an up position.
I’m wondering if there might be a small part missing from the locking mechanism arm. The fence locking arm has two small round holes on the end that contacts the guide bar when locked. Should there be something like a Teflon pad attached to the arm there or is the metal to metal direct contact created in the lock position correct?
FYI: I have Googled the T3 as well as searched the Delta web site to no avail. The Delta site didn’t even list the T3 for parts or provide a diagram.
Your help is appreciated.
