Topic tags/keywords: biesemeyer t-track feather board table saw fence

Hi
I recently aquired an older Jet 10” table saw with a Biesemeyer fence and I would like to attach t-track to the fence so I can attach a feather board.
Has anyone done this or know a good way to set it up

Thanks

Two options:
1) Remove the existing fence face and replace with one that has a T-track installed.

2) Build an auxiliary fence that has T-track and temporarily attach with fence clamps

Making the fence face/auxillary fence is easy with a piece of MDF/birch ply, a piece of T-track and a dado stack or router.

i double that recommendation from EdDantes. Making the aux fence is super easy, those fence clamps work like a charm and you can also make a tall fence, etc alot of options with those clamps. I would hesitate to remove the existing fence face.

Thanks for your advice
I like the fence clamps idea
So I think I will make a aux fence

Thanks again

I don’t use jigs on my fence so forgive my ignorance. Could screw the t track the top of the fence tube close to the fence face?

Possibly
Although not sure if there is the depth to the t track to get screws behind the channel

Have your say...
