Fast setup and easy to use

KREG Precision Band Saw Fence, Kreg# KMS7200
This is one of the easiest to setup and use fence systems I have ever owned. All parts are very well machined and sturdy. Once installed and adjusted properly it is rock solid. The instructions are very detailed including little tips and tricks to make installation and use easier. The system can be adjusted in every direction to make the fence perfectly plum and can even be adjusted to compensate for blade drift. When not needed it takes about 2 seconds to remove the fence from the track. The fence goes back on just as fast with no need to readjust, everything stays the same.

East Wenatchee, WA
The quality of this unit allows a high degree of accuracy. I needed to drill the table to receive the mounting bracket, but this was a defincency with the craftsman bandsaw unit.
I love KREG tools, I own several, and it made sense for me to make this purchase. After setting it up and fine tuning my saw, I was making great cuts very quickly.
I have a few issues though, the hardware for mounting was insufficient for my bandsaw, would like to see some more variety in that package. Also, the drift angle adjustment is very limited, and if your saw is not really dialed in, might not be sufficient for adjusting to different blades. If you know how to fine tune your saw, no problem. Or, you may be able to widen the slot with a dremel or die grinder for more room to adjust.
Overall, I am happy with the fence, it is worth the money.
Kreg Bandsaw Fence
Easy to install. Another good Kreg product. This is a very good bandsaw upgrade.
Seems decent, but...
I am basically just writing this because I'm a little frustrated. I just grabbed this from woodcraft and as I was installing it on my bandsaw I came to find out that 2 of the hex bolts were the wrong diameter and thread so I am unable to finish setting it up until I run to the hardware store to get the right bolts. I'd be fine taking it back to woodcraft to get the right screws, but most of it is already attached to the saw and its a half hour drive to get there, so its more convenient to get them somewhere else.
I just wanted to let people know about my issue just in case it happens to you, that you don't sit there and scratch your head trying to figure out where you went wrong. All in all it seems like it will work well when it gets bolted down and maybe I'll update this review.
Easyh installation on a RIKO
After reading many reviews and talking with Kreg about how difficult it is to mount this fence on a RIKON bandsaw I decided to purchased the Carter Magfence. I found the Magfence cumbersum to setup, after finding the drift then placing the fence the proper distance from the blade was not easy. I returned it and purchased the Kreg, there had to be a way to mount this on my RIKON and be able to change the blade without removing the mounting rail. First I had to drill 2 holes in the rail to match the hole pattern on the bed, then I picked up 2 pieces of square aluminum tubing 1"x 1" 10 1/4" long. I drilled holes in the piece that would be on the left then in the right piece I cut slots. Make sure you leaves a gap between the pieces where the blade slot is. I used 2" bolts on the right side, this length slides in and out easer. To change the blade you loosen the 2 right side bolts lift out the aluminum spacer and remove the bolts, now the blade slides out. After replacing the blade replace the spacer and tighten the 2 bolts. The rail does not need to be readjusted.
This a great piece of equipment, would highly recommend it to a friend.
could not install it. See reason
Dunham Quebec Canada
It is very hard for me to rate this product as I could not install it on my band saw ( I have an 18 in.General) because the insertion slot for the blade is where
the mounting bar would be installed. Nevertheless this product look very
good and good quality as usual. I have returned it to exchange it for your new "Wood River V3" hand plane as recommended by Rob Cosman.
I have always been satisfied with everything purchase from Woodcraft.
All major parts are excellent. It would of got 5 stars if it were not for the cheap nuts and bolts. Several bolts had deformed heads and bad threads. I simply replaced all of them with American made stuff. Other wise great addition the band saw.
Worth the money
The fence works just as is should. Easy to install, and easy to adjust. I have an 14" 2 speed Delta, and it works perfectly. Not sure of the issues on Rikon, but the fence is a winner. If you resaw, I suggest the 4 1/2" not the 7, unless you run "trees". Stay away from the micro adjuster, looks great but binds up and is just not worth the money.
Kreg - Issues with the Rikon BS
Twin Cities, MN
I just purchased the Kreg Fence during a recent sale. Wanted to replace the original Rikon fence that came with my 14" Deluxe BS. What I noticed right off was that the Kreg fence will require removal every time I change blades on my saw since the removal slot in the table comes out of the front, not the side. No real way around this unless I mount the fence to the back side of the table...not comfortable with that. Also, the multiple holes are not designed for installation on the Rikon saw. I could re-drill, but am deciding if I want to remove the fence rail for ever blade change, or just go with the Carter Magnafence (which isn't exactly my favorite either). No issues with Kreg quality...I use their fence system on my miter saw. It's ok, not precision accurate mind you. So, I'm on the fence with this fence (pun). It will likely go back to the store because I will be patient to find a better after market design for my saw, or I can likely make my own fence that will do a better job. If you have a saw that this fence was designed for, I would say to try it. It seems to be a decent system, just not for the Rikon design. Kind of disappointed in Kreg engineering...if they are gonna be the "experts", then they should be on top of these kinds of issues. Seems like a few departments over there are asleep at the wheel this time.
