Excellent after market fence
If you are considering buying this, you are probably planning to upgrade an old table saw. The good news is, this fence will adapt to any saw I know about. The bad news is you have to *make* it adapt to your saw. This is my experience. Your "actual mileage may vary". The front and back rails are hefty aluminum with no mounting holes. The fence is anodized aluminum with three t-track slots. The locking mechanism is a screw (my opinion, more reliable than a cam). Instructions are clear, but you have to be ready for a moderate amount of machining. The lack of pre-drilled holes is what makes this kit adaptable to everything. Instructions say you might want to support the guide rails with legs. I would say you definitely want to support the ends of the guide rails. I followed instructions to measure and mark the mounting holes. The included hardware is 5/16" hex head machine bolts. I drilled 5/16" holes in the guide bar. I "dry fitted" the guide bar with clamps, made sure it was level, and in the right position. Because I had to drill extra holes in my saw and saw extension, I used 5/16" drill bit through the holes to mark the exact position of my extra holes. I removed the bar. Then I drilled 5/16" holes in my saw table and shop built stand. Then I enlarged the holes in the guide bar to 3/8". This gave me "wiggle room" to adjust the bar and compensate for errors. If you are joining the bar to wood, use longer 5/16” bolts and install t-nuts in the wood. You can probably do all the drilling of the bars with hand power drill but I used a drill press. When you install your nylon guide on the back of the fence, you should make sure it will clear the bolt heads in the guide rail before you screw it to the fence. I made a mistake when I added my nylon guide. I had to cut a little bit off with my band-saw so it would not bump the mounting bolts. "Do as I say, not as I do." :-) The included tape measure and double-line-anti-parallax guide give you high precision. After proper "zero" setting, you no longer need to measure and mark you piece. Just move the fence to the correct dimension and cut it. Only on the right of the blade, though. After all the adjustments, my setup ended up with 38" right-rip. You can make more, or less right-rip capacity depending on how you mount the guide bar to your saw. This is OK, and not a complaint. It is just how my setup came together. The front-to-back distance between rails should not be larger than 28”. If you are planning on building your own extension table, you should make your table less-than-or-equal to 28” front to back. Does it work? YES. Is it square and accurate? After adjusting – YES. Heavy duty? YES. Can it adapt to my saw? YES. Easy to install? Probably yes. “Easy” is hard to define… Bottom line, I recommend it. I would buy it again.
ACCUSQUARE FANCE TREMENDOUS
EASEY TO INSTALL DID IT IN ONE DAY MADE MY 25 YEAR OLD CRAFTSMEN 10 INCH SAW A NEW LEASE ON LIFE. I SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS A LONG TIME AGO THANK YOU ACCUSQUARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've only been woodworking for about a year and a half now, but more than long enough to recognize the need of a better fence than the stock model on my old Craftsman. After perusing the reviews on several after-market solutions, I opted to go for the Accusquare, if for nothing else than their satisfaction guarantee. From the start, this was a pleasant buying experience. I pestered them a few times with questions via e-mail, and always got a response well withing 24 hours. The processing and shipping was incredibly fast (ordered Thursday, arrived Tuesday, and I live in the midwest). Upon arrival, the package was no fuss: just some paper packaging to protect from scratching. The instruction manual was quite thorough, and the installation only took a couple of hours (would have been faster if I had a drill press to use rather than a hand drill). Before even aligning it, the fence body glided smoothly on its rollers, staying square relative to its position. After setting it up, it locks in place with minimum pressure, glides effortlessly over my saw top, and most importantly stays perfectly parallel to the blade. Don't let the appearance and materials fool you: this is not some flimsy piece of aluminum that gives at the slightest force. Once locked in place, it takes me pushing pretty hard directly against the back of the fence body to move it even slightly; far more than will be applied to it during actual use. The T-slots in the body are a great feature, and I've already made a sacrificial fence using some pan-head 1/4 20's and the included square nuts. The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is due to its relative newness in my shop. After a few months, I'll come back and update this; but I expect they'll be a productive few months.
