Do not understand
Do not understand the reviews that say it isn't square? It is up to you to install and lock it down square to the blade, if it ain't square, release the magnets and fix it. I put mine on an old Craftsman 12 inch and love it. Allows me to switch blades without needing to remove the fence and the magnets hold extremely well.
Not square...returned it.
Mine wasn't square either. When I put it on the saw table and checked it with my precision square there was at least a 1/16 to 3/32 gap between the square and the bottom edge of the fence. It may be due to the rubber nubs that are on the bottom of the fence, but I didn't want to tear them off to test the idea and risk not being able to return it if that didn't work.
Fence is square
Saw a couple of reviews that indicated the fence was not square. The fence is square, however under magnet pressure the rubber gaskets on the bottom side compress differently causing the out of square effect. This is a great magnetic fence!!
Mine was 90 degrees from the table but parallel to the blade? Not so much
As stated, my fence was 90 to the table but when trying to set this parallel to the blade was a big hassle. I tried a variety of ways to do this and gave up. The only good thing about it was that this was my first experience with the dial magnets. They're good. The rest of the fence failed in its primary purpose.
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.
