Simple weekend project – aux fence for contractor table saw DEWALT DWE7491RS. I used leftover cherry plywood and screw joinery, and have repurposed featherboards from my old router table. Finish – few layers of wipe-on poly. Got really tight snug fit on the original fence, nice.

Very nice. I like the push stick storage.

Well, this is an actually wonderful idea. It would be a great protection to hands while using this machine. And I suppose that the small scraps that will scatter out while cutting will also be blocked by this.

It turned out to be a great safety feature, but also helped with my arthritis – apparently, I was pushing down stock too hard while ripping, and now vertical feather boards do it for me :-)

Does the fence just friction fit on top the existing aluminum fence? I have the same saw and was looking to do something similar with a t-track slot in it. The DeWalt is a great little saw but the stock fence is not to friendly for long rips.

Yes, just tight friction fit, so I can slide it back and forth to provide additional support where needed.

I’d like to build this. Any plans?
