Topic tags/keywords: delta 36-725 table saw fence rail

Hey guys,

I have the Delta 36-725 model and love it! I just hate that I only can cut up to 30” on the right side. I do a lot of cabinet work and not having the ability to cut 34-35” is rather annoying.

Does Delta make a 36” rail for the saw?

Or would anyone recommend a fence and rail system that can cut up to 36” on the right side of the blade?

Look for “Delta 36-T50 T3 Fence”. But it still shows 30” max rip to the right. ???? That’s got to be wrong on the HD site because other places show 50” max right rip which is what it should be.

Can you just move the rails to the right 15-20”?

I guess i could but the holes on rails are pre-drilled to be bolted on to the top of the table saw.

On some saws its possible to slide the rails over by one bolt hole, so you don’t even have to drill. Not sure if it’ll work with this saw but is worth some investigation.

I’m afraid there will alignment issues if i do that plus i’d have to buy new tape. I’d rather just buy something thats plug-and-play.

The Vega Pro 40 is a nice fence with an excellent micro adjuster, and is fairly easy to install….~ $331 shipped.

If you need to cut 36” from a sheet of plywood, what about setting the fence a 12” (minus the thickness of the blade) and cut off the “waste side” of the plywood?

Cheers!

Drilling new holes and a new stick on tape would cost maybe $10 and 30 mins

I’ve tried that before but it never comes out true.

I would think that any kits that you buy are going to require you to drill holes to match the saw or worse into the saw itself and you will probably have to apply your own tape so that it aligns perfectly to the blade position. The tape on mine was not accurate past about 12” so I bought a new one (but just haven’t applied it yet).

Yea I think i’m just going to make a big panel sled. I really don’t want to drill into the saw since I plan on reselling it to get something better later on. I want to keep everything original.
