I needed more ripping capacity for my saw, so I followed Knotscott's instructions to reposition my fence railing. I now have the ability to rip up to almost 37 inches wide. Thanks Scott for the inspiration.

I posted more information and pictures in my blog.

I have a Delta T2 fence which uses a 2” square tubing for the rail, so I went to a local metal shop and hit thier drop pile and about $15 bought me a 7’ long piece of square tubing and a an equally long piece of angle iron. Using my old rails as a guide I drilled and tapped the necessary holes and viola, I had around a 51” rip capacity. I got some grey rustoleum enamel paint and no one notices the difference until I say something. You can check out my mod here

@emetric – I like your extension with the hidden storage compartment.

Why are your directions on moving the fence deleted?
