I'm building a copy of a Beisemeyer Fence and it couldn't be any cheaper
really. You can get some ideas how to get started here:
but I do NOT like his locking mechanism and am making a cam lock type just
like a ShopFox or Beisemeyer. I'll post pics and plans when done but it is
going to be a few weeks. I'm figuring mine will cost be around $50-60
total when I'm done.
If you have a table saw and you can do some woodworking, build your own. After
much reluctance I have started some metal working with 6061 Aluminum. Using my
tablesaw with a carbide blade the 6061 machines great. I had read it did but
thought it sounded scarry. Anyway, using the above design as a reference, I'd
goto ebay and under industrial-metalworking-aluminum goto low cost metals and
get some 6061 and make your own.
Why not spend what it takes to have a quality fence system? I also had a
POS Craftsman TS. I bought a $300 Incra TSIII. It transformed that POS
into a decent cutting machine. When I unloaded the Craftsman, I kept the
Incra and put it on the new Jet TS, transforming a medocre, standard-issue
Jet fence into a quality cutting machine.
It is a constant mystery too me why you guys don't read the question and
answer it APPROPRIATELY! I'll guarantee you he didn't pay $300 for the
table saw and he specifically asked about a fence for LESS than he paid.
i would not let ANYONE use the one i took off my C'man saw... its not
even worth the scrap metal...
its better than nuttin, i'll give ya that. but for all the hassle i
got from it,,,after i put the Excalibur on it, i never looked back
a t-square and c-clamps would service ya better and stay where you put
it better than the align-a-rip 24/24 system
