Description

In Detail

This excellent rip fence upgrade is a godsend to anyone struggling with a worn or sub-standard bandsaw or table saw fence on an otherwise well performing machine. It is made from aluminium extrusions and features ball bearings for smooth running, adjustment for squareness, graduated 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 rail is 740mm and the fence is 550mm long by 65mm deep. The fence extrusion has tee slots on three faces for mounting false fences and other accessories. Altogether a very well-produced and effective accessory for upgrading your bandsaw or table saw.

Great Company, fantastic delivery service and a really great new Rip Fence

Have been looking at this Rip fence replacement for sometime and trying to work out weather it would fit my saw table. Finally ordered this online, to have it delivered free of charge on the day after by DPD. What a really great service. On opening the box Wow!! What a piece of kit. Well made and very sturdy. Thanks again Axminster for a real top quality bit of kit.

Excellent update

Purchased this update for my MLT100 to replace the less than adequate original unit.
I was able to fit without the drilling any holes as existing holes lined up. The front edge of the table was not square to the top so a small amount of remedial work had to be done prior to bolting the angle brackets on. Otherwise a quick straight forward modification.

Superb

I bought this for my Sip Bandsaw. The saw is great but the fence was always wobbly and needed clamping. I must say I was blown away with how solid and accurate this new fence is.

I drilled two holes on the front of the table and tapped them to M6. The fence mounting is solid.

The angle of the fence is adjustable so you can line it up with the natural cutting direction of the blade. You do this by drawing a parallel line on a squared length of wood (MDF works best) Cut along this line freehand until you are not having to adjust your cut or the wood. Stop when you are halfway through and leave the wood there. You can draw a line on your table or simple leave the wood where it is. This is the natural line of cut.

Now loosen the fence locking bolts, move the fence so it matches the angle the wood. It may be in line with table, it be at a large angle. It doesn’t matter, this is the natural cutting angle of that blade. If you change blades you should make this adjustment again.

One other modification I made: Because of the shape of the fence, the base was catching in the left mitre gauge slot as I moved the fence left and right. The fence was also making a scraping noise as it was metal on metal. To counter this, I took the fence off, cut a small piece of hardwood to sit in the channel at the base of the fence, planed it so it was protruding about 2mm above the aluminium. I then rounded the corners and waxed it. I held it in place with four dollops of hot melt glue (so I can easily remove it later). The fence now slides left and right beautifully smoothly with no noise and it doesn’t get caught in the mitre gauge slot.

I wish I’d got this fence a long time ago. I also got their smaller version for my smaller Delta bandsaw. Although it’s lighter version it still locks solid.

Excellent replacement fence

I recently purchased a portable site table saw although I discovered that the original fence ( the saw arrived without it) was discontinued by the manufacturer. I was able to fit this fence to the saw and was even able to keep the extending table functioning with a little modification to the saw. The fence is actually far more accurate than the original would ever have been.
All round excellent product and very simple to fit

Worthwhile improvement , now for the lowdown ...

Would definitely recommend but here are some tips on fitting . The 2 point fitting is easy enough , the brackets ( part number F15 ) have slots rather than holes at the top end allowing the fence rail ( F12 ) to be accurately aligned with the table . Getting everything sliding properly involves 4 things :- Firstly the fence ( F01 ) should seat flat along it's entire length on the table top . Secondly , that this applies along the entire length of travel of the fence rail ( F12 ) . Thirdly , both the bearings ( F07 ) are in contact and rotate as the fence travels along the rail & fourthly , that the fence is at right angles to the table top . If you find that the fence needs adjustment via the 90 degree screw & bearing eccentric shaft ( F08 ) this will mean checking and adjusting all of the above again . ( See previous revue on highlighting the hidden grub screw F05 , which fixes the bearing , you'll need 1/8th imperial allen key & some plus-gas ) . Further adjustment to get the fence parallel to the blade involves loosening the 2 bolts ( F02 ) , here you'll need a 6mm allen key & maybe plus-gas & mole grips . When the setup is complete you'll find that there is a huge amount of slop when the fence is not in the locked position , cure this by attaching "Slick" tape to the 2 surfaces opposite the bearings . ( Thanks to previous review highlighting this , I couldn't get teflon ) All in all it took about to 10 mins to fit & 2 hours to adjust correctly for my saw table . Some observations after fitting , I find If you apply sideways finger pressure to the end of the fence when locked there is some deflection & when you use the locking lever you need to push the fence down firmly on the table to avoid the fence rail flexing . Still a vast improvement , recommended & I believe good value ...
