I own a craftsman 22124 tablesaw which has been in storage unopened since I purchased it when they first came out. I am finally in the process of assembling it. As you know it comes with a beismeyer fence, but I have since purchased the Incra fence. So my question is what fence would you use and why, and if you have the 22124 with an Incra fence let me know what you think.

As much as I like the Biese style fences for their durability, simplicity, ease of use, good accuracy, and consistency, the Incra is unmatched for precision and repeatability. The downside of the Incra is cost and space consumption to the right of the blade, plus is a bit complex to use. I definitely don’t have space to give up, and I’ve never found I needed better precision than what I get from a Biese clone, but YMMV. Which to choose is entirely up to you.

If I had an Incra I would use it. Since I don’t have one I use my Unifence with a Wixey digital read out and it does a darn good job so I don’t have a compelling reason to buy something else.
