Hi, I just bought a Jet saw (JWTS-10CW2, cast wings) from a place
going out of business but the saw did not come with a fence or rails.
So, I need to buy some.
I was thinking about getting the Xacta fence as I've used it before on
a larger JET machine and liked it, but it is quite expensive
($300+?!?) and wanted to post a message to see if I had any other
options. I guess Incra and HTC also make fence systems for the
Recommendations? Experiences?? Inexpensive places to buy?
I've seen the stock fence, and I think I need something a little more
precise than that. I will mostly be using the saw to do careful
cutting. I will be making speaker enclosures, and the more precise the
cuts are the first time, the less work I have to do later!
I have the complete new rail and fence system. I have the miter gauge
too if you need that.
I am in Tampa Florida. But I can ship it...

On my jet I have the Vega 52" Utility fence. I did have a bit of
trouble getting it realigned once to my miter slot after it's removal
and reinstallation after the purchase of the saw. The class 8 knarled
allen head bolts bite into the alum a bit and can cause a dimple. I
purchased some washers but I didn't take the burr off the alum before
attempting again. Someday I will pull it back apart (about a 30
minute total job) and try it again.
To "solve" the problem I used about 3 pieces of blue carpenters tape
on the correct side of the head, this adjusted the end within a couple
thousands toe out at the end of the table. Except for my feed
techique I can cut purple heart with no burning on the WWII.
Is the Biesemyer the same fence as the Jet Xacta fence? They look
pretty close to me.
BTW, does anyone use the newer fence that comes on the supersaw? I
will probably end up getting the 50" version for my JWTS because I
cant really afford the Xacta. I also like that little roller feature.
I need to find out on Monday if it will fit on my saw though.
