How's it going, haven't talked to you in awhile? I've been pretty much out
of the shop with my new son being in the picture. SWMBO swears I'll be
given at least 8 hours of time (cumulative, mind you) this weekend to work
in the shop. I'm planning to build Sam Allen's jointer's bench (I got a
Veritas twin-screw vise and a Record 52 1/2 front vise). Hopefully I'll be
able to make some progress.
Anyway, I have the Fasttrack bandsaw fence on my Jet 14" bandsaw and I like
it for the most part. It is easy to adjust and was a breeze to install,
assuming (which I'm sure is the case) that your Delta has the tapped bolt
holes already in the table where the Fasstrack fence mounting bracket is
mounted. The only slightly annoying thing about the fence that I've found
is that when you tighten down the bolt the fence often shifts a little just
as you get the bolt tight, necessitating a few trials to get the fence at
just the right distance from the blade, etc. Also, since it is only mounted
on one side, the far end of the fence does flex a little if you apply too
much sideways pressure.
All in all, I've been very happy with it and it serves its function nicely.
There are no stupid questions.
There are a LOT of inquisitive idiots.
