I was under the impression that the faces on the Biesemeyer fence were
removable. I thought I saw them, on one of the shows, tap the end of
the face and it became unlocked. Was I looking at something different
or do I just need to do something else to remove the face. I wanted to
do this so I could make some sacrificial fences.
I don't think that the faces of the Biesemeyer fence are removable. I
believe that the faces are attached (aka screwed to the main structure) and
then the white laminate is installed. At least this is my understanding...I
could be wrong.
Place your sacrificial fence next to the Bies fence. You won't be able
to non-destructively remove the Bies fence (the screws are under the
laminate). I put sac fences against my bies with no problem. why can't
you do that?
Same here. Just a simple strip of waxed MDF is all it takes. Simply
clamp both ends to the existing fence, above the path of the work.
I use mine so often, that I keep it hanging next to the saw. To save
time on built-ins and cabinets, I'll often set my saw up for a 3/4"
dado and use the sac fences to use the same setup to cut 1/4" and 3/8"
rabbets, without wasting time altering the stack.
You may have been looking at the HTC fence, as seen here

I believe it fits on the same rails as the bies.
Yes they are removable but not taped off. That is a HTC and/or
Jet/Powermatic style fence.
On the Biesemeyer fence you have to heat the laminated sides with a heat gun
to loosen the adhesive and then peel the side off. Once off the screws are
exposed and can be removed.
