This fence can be used three different ways to provide three different fence heights. The first photo shows the 3/4 inch height on the right edge. In the second photo, I merely flipped it end-for-end so the T is in the back, and now the medium height is available on the right edge. In the third photo you see the tallest setting where I unscrewed the fence from the T, and rotated it to the tall side and screwed it into another set of holes on the T. To lock the fence in place, I use squeeze clamps with one on each end.

Friggin brilliant. Three times as useful as the average bandsaw fence. I like the scale too – don’t know about the rest of them, but my grizzly had a little magnifier which was great for aligning precisely to the nearest 1/16…problem is you had no way of knowing which nearest inch you were at!

I’ve seen that before at a Michael Fortune class some years ago at WIA. It is a smart way to get a lot of cuts done, with your blade guard out of the way for all of them.

I’m also impressed with your zero clearance table.
