I've used this fence for about a year now and I'm not a fan. When using it on my bandsaw, it has moved as I was feeding stock resulting in more than one ruined part and when used on a drill press I've had more than a few holes drilled in the wrong spot because the fence is drifting as I was applying pressure to the piece to keep it square to the fence. I also agree with a previous reviewer about the fence being out of square and needing to use quite a bit of the length of the adjustment screws to get it square. It is a sturdy fence, but the magnets and the precision could use some work.
The fence came with about 0.100" out of square, nearly an 1/8". Way to much for a 3" tall fence. It seems Carter knows this is an issue so they provide long adjustment screws. Problem is the amount of adjustment required to achieve a 90 deg angle, lifts the fence off the table far enough so the magnets loose about 50% of the holding force. Bottom line the fence moves too easily when adjusted to 90 deg to the table. I now see a number of other reviewers on other web sites with the same problem.
This thing works like a champ. I've been using it to resaw and it works great and you can add an auxiliary fence if needed, but I haven't yet. Great product.
