Topic tags/keywords: biesemeyer home shop fence delta 34-410 fence installation table saw


I recently had the opportunity to purchase a Biesemeyer Home Shop Fence for a great deal on Craigslist. I’ve gotten the front rail installed and I’m about to install the rear rail, but I’m concerned about drilling the holes for the rear rail.

How important is the horizontal positioning of the rear rail?

If I line up the notch in the rail with the saw blade, none of the holes wind up in a great location for drilling.

I do not want to drill near the trunnions. I also do not want to drill near the holes for the original delta fence.

Perhaps I’m being too careful about it, but it seems to me like there are only 2 wide, flat places on the back of the cast iron top of the Delta where I can get 1/4” bolts to go through with washers, lock washers, and nuts, that won’t interfere with the trunnions, the ribbing, or the thicker parts of the table near the original threaded holes.

I also noticed that the rear rail holes aren’t countersunk, which seems odd to me.

Should I just drill two holes in the rear rail where I think the bolts should go?
Should I shift the rear rail to the left or right until the holes end up in a good location?

Just drill the holes where they should be…

Have your say...
