  • DIY table saw fence.

    Sorry if this is the wrong place. I am building an outfeed table for my table saw but before I complete it I'd like to decide on a home made fence for it. Is there a resource on here for that? I've seen some good ones out there but I'd like some detail. Thanks!

    most of the home made ones use a Tee type fence . I made one for a Printers saw that worked .

      Quite a few yrs. made a fence for my buddy -- it was a copy of a Beismeyer . Here's what it looked like. If you want more I have a few more with different info.

        Another option is extruded aluminum.
        Lots of options here.

          This is more like what I was thinking of. Beefy ones that attach only on the one side. I was looking at aftermarket ones too. I kind of just want one now but I'll probably just make one. You're copy looks good. Have more details? Step by step building? I can weld aluminum, get my hands on some.

            I think they have relatively beefy ones, about 3x3" but ones that are flat on one side flat on one side are between 1 and 1.5". The two can be paired.
            Also, look at their additional hardware for connectors, sliders etc.
            As for the locking mechanism, I'm not sure 8020 carries any.

              I built my own saw table, but I purchased an aftermarket fence for it, from tegs tools in Hamilton Ontario, I want to say it was no more than 350$ for the whole set up. I love it.
