Topic tags/keywords: table saw table saw fence fence delta tablesaw

I just bought this Delta 34-670 table saw and i had bought a delta fence off of Facebook market place for $20. The fence i bought did not come with any mounting hardware but was still in plastic. I cant find any information regarding this delta fence and I’m not really sure of a good way to mount it to get the best results. The aluminum guide has a T-Track system to attache to the table saw, but the T-Track needs to be lower than the holes on the table saw in order for the fence to be flat to the table. If anyone has any tips or ideas on how to mount this, please let me know!

I have a Vega fence and it comes with some pretty heavy duty “L” brackets to lower the glide tube so the fence is flush to the table. Could you cut some sections of angle iron to make your own custom heavy “L” brackets? Not sure how much lower you need to get.

Hope this helps. Let us know what you do.

Thank you for your idea.
I was thinking something similar like using a U channel and drilling it to match the table saw, then drilling holes for the T-track. Then slide bolts into the T track and puting washers and nuts on the inside of the U channel. hoping that the U channel will be sturdy.

Have your say...
