Topic tags/keywords: table saw fence

Hey all!

So! My dad had an woodworking shop when I was growing up and still has all his old tools. He no longer works at that, and he and mom have since moved away, so all the tools are just lying around. As I get more room for them, I’m going to adopt an 8” General jointer, a 24” General planer and a few other big pieces of equipment.

In the meantime! The thing I do have room for is his Delta XL-10 table saw. It’s this exact one here:$_35.JPG

It’s a real step up from the portable Ridgid saw I had from before, but I’m having a real hard time getting the fence square.

Anyone have experience squaring up a fence on those tubular rails? Or anyone recommend a (relatively inexpensive) 3rd party fence? I think spending $500 on an Incra is out of the question, but I’d like to hear people’s suggestions.

Did you follow the procedure in the manual for squaring up the fence (page 15)??
