I’d add the auxiliary fence using a 1/2” ply, so you don’t lose so much capacity but get the height you want. The more expensive Miter Saws have moveable and removeable upper fence, so it’s possible to add a higher fence if you’re crafty enough to make one for it.

Good idea. Thanks Rayne.

I had another thought: making a longer swivel arm to replace the short one on the clamp. A piece of maple would be plenty strong for that.

The thing is, it’s not really the height of the fence that’s an issue, it’s not being able to clamp to it. Fences on miter saws are actually just backstops, because you’re not using them as cutting guides like you do on a table saw, router table, jointer, or shaper fence.

waho6o9, that’s another good idea.

Have your say...
