I just wondered if anybody could think of a homemade workaround to fix my table saw fence.

The fence on my Grizzly 1022SM (it’s vintage/old) has a broken part. Now the rear “hook” won’t grip the rear rail, otherwise the saw is still going strong. I highlighted a crack and two pins on the attached picture. It’s actually broken loose on both sides, I just put it back together for the picture. The large pin puts a lot of force on the part when the fence is locked in place. The closest I came to finding a replacement part was finding a complete fence like mine on ebay but they were asking $150 + S/H. Apparently the same model was also used on some Delta and Jet table saws but it’s kind of a wild goose chase.

I’d take it to machine shop and get an estimate and then decide if it is worth it or whether to upgrade to a new fence and rails.

That looks a lot like the fence on the old Delta contractor’s saw I used to have. Hated that fence, so I made my own T-square fence. Of course I had to make a different rail. Grizzly’s newer T-square fences, with the rails that they will also sell you, are much better.

Hi James,

Hi justlikejames

That part you are after that is the same part I bought for my table saw.
It took me along time to find. That part is the same as the Rexon table saw.
The part that you are looking for is call Table saw Rear Clamp Block Part Number 1342675.
I found mine on ebay and the price I paid for mine $37.42 for 2 and shipping was $23.95.
The company that was selling them they 12 left. I got them about 6 months ago. If you can’t
find them on ebay try Delta using the part name and number. My part like your’s broke in the
same place and I fixed mine but it broke somewhere else. Those new rear clamp block is better
and strong metal than the ones comes with the table saw. I hope that helps.

Cheers Graham.

Thanks everyone, this is a great site and community of knowledgeable people.

MrUnix – I could probably get it welded but there isn’t much material there and it’s pot metal. So it wasn’t real strong to begin with. One of the screw holes on top has snapped off too. They’d have a lot of labor in it.

bondogaposis – A machine shop is a good idea if I can’t find a replacement.

thedude50 – I called Grizzly, they didn’t have any stock or a substitute.

runswithscissors – I can’t justify the cost of a new fence. I considered it, but although the saw runs great the cast iron table isn’t as flat as it used to be and the miter slots aren’t consistent width from front to back anymore. It’s getting me by until I can get a new saw.

matador8 – Thanks. I found that part on ebay for $25. It looks almost identical so I’ll take a chance and order one. It’s worth the $25 to give it a try at least.

Thanks again everyone.
