Lately I have found myself needing to make large 42 to 50 inch cuts in plywood panels, however my table saw only had a 36 inch cutting capacity, so I started looking at new saw’s. After awhile I decided I really could not afford the saw I wanted so I stated looking for an alternative and then craigslist offered the solution. Someone was selling a 52 inch BIESEMEYER fence for a good price so I grabbed it. After a couple hours in the shop setting it up on my saw (Ridgid 3650) I am happy to say it is installed. What a great fence. After initial adjustment i was able to cut several large panels that would have been very challenging beforehand. All I need to build now is a good outfeed table to replace the one I have now. More to follow once the project is completed.

Sounds like a great up-grade to your existing saw while saving $$ alot. Does is come complete with the rail & all the hardware?

Tom, Your out feed table is the one I started the design for mine from. I am going to do the same with a set of drawers on one side and then cabinets on the other. I may leave the cabinet side open, but I am not sure yet.

woodworm, Yes it same with rails and all the hardward it was brand new in box for about 1/2 the cost of a new one. From a business that was closing.
