Did you know that a bandsaw blade could change its angle as much as 18-degrees depending on where it rides on the top or bottom wheel? Multiply that over the length of the table, and many fences can be as much as 3/4" out of square. The Carter Products® F.A.S.T.™ Fence Alignment System Tool utilizes a simple and easy magnetic design that allows you to place it on the blade and determine when you are in the "sweet spot" for accurate cutting. F.A.S.T. bars to allow you to precisely align the fence square to the blade and to the exact distance from the blade to the fence. The F.A.S.T. system comes with an adhesive backed foam drawer insert for easy organized storage. Likewise being magnetic, the F.A.S.T. bars attach directly to your saw for easy access.

It’s not often that a manufacturer invents a slick solution to a long-standing woodworking problem. So hats off to Carter Products for alleviating some serious resawing aggravation! The challenge with resawing has always been setting your fence dead parallel to the cutting path of the blade. This can be tricky because the blade itself may not be perfectly parallel to the edge of the saw table due to the crown of the wheels or table misalignment. And any deviation of fence parallelism from the cutting path can cause blade wander, miscuts, and perhaps a bit of profanity.
