Did you buy an “Accufence” or the Mule Cab “Accusquare”? They are two very difference designs.

The Accufence is a good heavy duty welded steel Biese copy made by HTC, and is the stock fence on several PM saws. It’d be a nice upgrade from the Delta fence IMO, and almost all lower end stock fences.

The Mule Cab Accusquare is lighter duty, is aluminum, and needs to be rolled all the way off the fence to remove it. The Mule does have some nice accessories that mount to the t-slots, but overall I prefer the steel t-square fences. The T3 is in a similar price range as the Accusquare.

The T3 is a bit beefier than the Accusquare, is stiffer, easier to use, but doesn’t have the T-slots. The stock fence on the Delta is very similar other than it has the two-piece front rail. The hook on the back is there to prevent lifting, not to hold the back of the fence tight.
