KREG Precision Band Saw Fence, Kreg# KMS7200
Set up was relatively easy. All screw holes, alignments and parts worked as expected right of the box. Also got the resaw guide. All high quality and well thought out. I am impressed, as usual, with Kreg products
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I found it very easy to install and set up. I replaced the factory fence on my Rikon 14" bandsaw. This Kreg is so much more accurate!!!!! I do a lot of re-sawing & it worked great without a re-saw fence but I will add one before re-sawing wider stock.
Fast setup and easy to use
Jason from the craft shop
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.

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.
