Biesemeyer Fence Major Disappointment

Biesemeyer Fence Major Disappointment

09-24-2015 04:25 PM by Hawk_Guy | 39 comments »

So I finally pulled the trigger on a Biesemeyer table saw fence, the Rolls Royce of fence systems. I will preface this with the statement that I must be the most unlucky consumer on the market or the tool industry has gone to total crap. For those of you who have read my reviews in the past you may be thinking I’m some sort of internet troll out to bad mouth manufacturers. I’ll be frank, if the product is good then I’ll rave about it but if the product stinks I’m go...

Shop Fox W1819 Table Saw Review (Almost Great!)

I received my order neatly packaged in 3 boxes contained on a single pallet. I paid about $1500 which included lift gate delivery and an 8” dado blade set “valued at $150”. Nothing was damaged and all parts and hardware were accounted for. Saw took about 5 hours to assemble and align with no helpers.
