Shawn and Grant, thanks for the input on the Incra equipment. I did take a look at that Youtube post by that talented young man, and it would meet my needs for absolute repeatability, but that build is probably out of my league even if I had a metal lathe and welder. I was also a little foggy about how he allowed for adjustmentss between the 16th inch increments while being able to get back to the original registration. Regrettably, metal lathe and welding are two skills, along with plumbing, that my father didn’t have an opportunity to pass on to me and that I didn’t realize I was going to regret not having later in life. He was a master plumber and amateur machinist.

I do have a question about the Incra fence. If I were to buy the shorter version, is there any way to quickly and easily remove the Incra and use the existing saw fence, for wider cuts? I have the 52” Saw Stop cabinet saw ( a great saw by the way ) and hate to give up that wide cutting ability entirely.
