no previous part Part 1 of delta contractor saw upgrade and workstation build series no next part

well this is the first blog post of my woodworking carreer. i bought this delta 36-650 contractor in pretty bad shape in march. tore it down cleaned as much rust as i could off oiled it up and painted the base. it came with the original crappy potmetal delta fence. after unloading the saw from my buddys truck i set the fence and it broke at the lockdown. so after a few more tool purchases and much web surfing i found the biesemeyer bc-50 fence system for a saw. heres a link to the site and page. no affiliation with the site just a happy customer and would recomend them to friends/jocks. fast service and great deals. my fence was shipped direct from deltas factory in tenn. and would have arrived in two days if the freight company delivered on more then one day in my area. fence just arrived today and was well packed as my pictures will show. this first part of the blog will show the install of the new fence and rails. the second part will show the alignment of blade and fence. any advice and alignment information will be gratly appreciated as i am a newb. pics will be added in the morning.

-- 20 year old new woodworker. advice and tools much appreciated.

sound like you are moving right along !
i like your tenacity in getting what you need ,
and being willing to learn about your tools ,
by working on them ,
then working with them !
