This is the auxiliary fence I built over my rip fence on my SawStop. The subfence fits with a piston fit and the tall fence bolts onto it. Everything is made from baltic birch plywood and the tall fence is skinned with formica for durability, slickness and easy visibility to reference lines. There’s also a convenient tool tote on the back for easy access to all my most common table saw tools.

I have the following capabilities with this fence:

Attach Feather boards, L-Fence, tenon jig, spline miter jig
Tool Tote holds riving knife, rulers and tape measure via magnets, a holster for my push stick, and holders for my double square, pencils/markers and my tool for raising and lowering my router in the router table on the side of my table saw.

This fence is rock solid. I could move my entire saw with it and it wont budge.

Nice features. A sac fence is a necessity, and a tall fence is a very nice addition, the spline, and hold down will also pay dividends. With all the info you are already providing for free in the video, and the web page, are you selling any plans?

Some very clever features on that fence. Nicely designed.

I’m not following the subfence attachment to the saw fence. Is it a friction fit? Did you consider set screws on the back side?

I’ve followed you on Instagram for some time and was so glad to see a video on this fence. I would really like to build one, but I have been hesitant because I have a Ridgid 4512 and I am just not sure if the fence system is robust enough to deal with a attachment this large and heavy. I may have to experiment though. Not much to lose trying. It’s not an expensive build and the payoff could be huge. Thanks for sharing!

correct piston fit on the rip fence. No set screws and there is no “back” because I built it so that you could use the right and left side of the subfence.

Slick design. Well thought out. I’m a big fan of using high pressure laminate on jigs and fixtures. Wherever it makes sense I also edge band with PVC Tee-Molding. Outwater Plastics is a great resource for it.

Very nice and feature packed. I just spent 2 hours watching some of your videos and the fence is on the project list.
