I Bought a used table saw and the front guide rail is lightly folded.
Replace the part will cost 120$, so I prefer to try to redress it. It is a
tubular rail like the #8 (422-04-055-0001) on this web site :
The rail is folded at one point but it is not curved.
Is there a special way to do it. Do I have to heat it ?
Your help is always appreciated.
I had the same opinion that this Rail could NOT be 120 bucks...
but I guess it really is....Sheeze !
To be honest I still use a old Rockwell Delta contractors saw
but use it 100 percent of the time with a sled for crosscutting...
IF I was faced with spending 120 bucks to replace the rail on my Delta
I would say forget that and buy a Bies Homeshop Fence or other
T square aftermarket fence ....MUCH MUCH better fence and really not
that much extra money... Spend 200-300 and get a very good fence or
spend 120 and end up with a workable fence that I personally fought
with almost every time I used it ..in short I hated the original fence
on my Rockwell/Delta... .
I have a front rail and fence available as the unisaw i bought had no
back rail. I've upgraded my fence and would gladly sell mine at a much
lower price. if interesest send e-mail to email@example.com
Don't try to fix it. You will never get it right and your fence will
not track parallel to the slot/blade.
There should be lots of them out there to buy reasonably because so
many people have upgraded from a Jet Lock to another type of fence.
Before you pay $120 you need to consider that.
