Micro adjust for my New table saw

Now that I have a new table saw I need to make new jigs to go with it. I got the basic design from Ron Walters
( http://woodgears.ca/reader/walters/fence_micro.html ). I did modify it a bit by adding the micro adjust wheel that turns on the threaded rod (not by turning the rod). This way if the rod isn’t striaght it still works well without wobble and is more consistent. One notch adjusts the fence by .003”. The screws on the knob side are loose so when tightening the knob, the side slightly moves which allows it to clamp onto the rail. It works great.

I used this idea on my router fence ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/101779 ) and it works fantastic so thought it should work for the table saw also.

Enjoy

Now this is just too cool. There have been a few prior posts with similar micro-adjusters for the table saw. This one is definitely a project I need to get busy and make for my TS. Thanks for the post and inspiration.

Simple and effective jig, very useful for those exact dimensions when required.

Thanks everyone. My previous micro adjuster was for a Delta Unifence and is a T-rail so I had to make this one and I love it. It is version 2 though as I didn’t like the prototype. So I did some googling and found the one by Ron Walters on woodgears. Works great so no more versions needed.

What a great idea and necessary addition for our TSs. How did you connect the micro adjust wheel so it clicks a specific amount and then locks in place? Would it be possible for you to add a drawing of the plans? Thanks for showing this wonderful idea.
