I love the idea of this fence, but for the money I expected much better. The hold is stronger than I expected, but the face is not square to the bottom. It is not like the face is off by a fraction of a degree, but closer to a full 5 degrees, making it useless for many applications. For the cost of this fence I expected I wouldn't have to shim it everytime I use it.
Product not square...
I bought this fence thinking it would work just great on my new 14" bandsaw, pulled it out of box, looked great, well made and very durable was my first thoughts... Then I set it on my table and the first thing I noticed was there was no way that it was 90 degree square, so I got out my squares and locked it down to table... This thing was so far out(about 8 degrees off) from 90 that even after playing around with it for an hour, without doing some serious modifications to the fence it was basically worthless for any type of resawing I wanted to do... Very disappointed and immediately put it back in box and returned it to store, guess I'll have to look elsewhere because I will never buy another Carter product!!!
I use it all the time on my drill press when I need to drill a series of holes in a straight line. Easy, fast setup.
High quality tool, worth the price
Carter provides good value for your investment. Well made, easy to use. Removable mag-locks are great for use in home made fixtures.
Wish it had the other two mags.
