This deluxe rip fence upgrade is a more sophisticated version of our popular fence upgrade kit. It's a godsend to anyone struggling with a worn or inadequate bandsaw or table saw rip fence on an otherwise well performing machine. It is made from aluminium extrusions and features ball bearings for smooth running, adjustment for squareness, graduated left and right hand scales and a quick action locking handle. The support rail fits to the front edge of the saw table with two brackets with holes positioned 23mm below the table surface. The brackets can be positioned along the length of the rail to suit different sized tables. If the table edge is not deep enough then simple angle brackets can be made to mount the rail. The length of the front rail is 740mm and the fence is 635mm long by 135mm deep. The fence extrusion has a T-slot on the front face for mounting a false fence and other accessories. It can also be fitted in two planes, vertical and horizontal, and can be slid on the bracket to the correct position for rip or crosscut work. A second rail is provided, fitting on the rear of the saw table to support the end of the fence rail if required. All together a very well-produced and effective accessory for upgrading your bandsaw or table saw.

Substantial bit of kitFitting the de-lux version was no drama to the Record Power BS350, the existing holes in the table can be utilised for the fence guide rail, only problem is the two rather large knobs fitted to the bottom of the angle fixing brackets prevent the opening of the bottom door to allow blade changes, I have substituted a different T bolt and knob to get over this problem. The fence is very tall and prevents positioning it close to the blade for re-sawing a mid size piece of timber, it would be nice to have a smaller fence option.

Substantial bit of kitTake no notice of the illustration on the Axminster web site, the main rail is 180 deg"s out of final position and the back rail is 90 deg's clockwise out of position, for what is a nice bit of kit, its a shame Axminster could not get this right, it detracts from its quality.
