Works great.
Works great. A bit pricey but worth every penny if you do a lot of resawing. Installed on a Laguna 14 SUV. You need to drill the mounting holes on the table to 1/2".

Great bandsaw fence
I have a new Laguna 14" SUV. In installing the Driftmaster, I used the universal brackets and used my existing table holes for original fence but enlarged them. The instruction manual was 2 stars out of 5. The photos were fuzzy and the text was incomplete. I'd recommend the 3 part YouTube video on installation and use of the Laguna Drift master by Rockler. I got 2- 18 and 2- 19 mm combination wrenches for under $20 to tighten the 2 different nut sizes for the installation.

The system itself is wonderful. It's so easy to set the fence for drift. I'm using my old 14" Delta bandsaw for detailed work with a 3/16" blade and using the Laguna with a 3/4" Resaw King blade for resawing. I'm enjoying making a lot of bandsaw boxes for gifts.

Works as described
Does not fit the LT 14 SUV as one would expect. Engineers should have adjusted hole placement to fit the 14, 16 and LT 18. Got it worked out but somewhat of a pain to install. Works amazingly well though. Using saw (LT14SUV) and this fence to cut back and sides for guitar building. After getting it all set up, cut a few practice pieces then cut my first back and sides. Excellent results!

Nothing better for controlling drift
I cut a lot of thin veneer and this fence is a blessing. Because the fence is installed a Laguna LT14 SUV, the existing table mounting holes had to be drilled out a touch to accommodate the drifter master hardware.

Almost pretty good.
The first fence that was shipped was machined very poorly. The fence did not slide along the rail smoothly. Rockler customer service was responsive and sent out a new fence promptly which works well. My only complaint is that they were supposed to email a return shipping label and after three emails and a phone call, they just don't seem to be able to execute on that. I really don't want the other fence and I would like to avoid burying it in the landfill.

Mounting is a pain
I have a Laguna 12/14 bandsaw and the holes do not line up on my saw either. I should have read the reviews before I purchased it. Drilling out the holes is not difficult, but I've only got about 1/8 inch of table left under the mounting holes in the table. Seems to be holding, but I'd like to have a bit more security. Works great, as advertised.

Yes, you can accurately and repeatedly...
Yes, you can accurately and repeatedly cut thin veneer with this fence. The fit & finish of all parts with the exception of the aluminum fence is extremely poor. It is also a poor fit for a Laguna 18" Band Saw. For the lack of quality, it is not up to the standards one would expect of Laguna Tools. Despite the poor craftsmanship and high cost, it does work as described.

Does it come with the tall driftmaster fence or do I have to purchase that separately?
Damon P on Sep 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The tall rip fence is an option that must be purchased in addition to the Driftmaster system. The Driftmaster fence is about 4" tall and shorter than the tall fence. I like the tall fence, twice as high, when ripping anything wider than 5". I just leave my taller, longer fence on my saw. I recommend the additional purchase.
Does this fence come with any kind of scale? I didn't see one installed or used in the 3-part video. Seems like it should, for the price.
Richard C on Feb 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Richard,
Included in the packaging you will find a 15" scale fixed to a slotted 1/2" x 3/4"aluminum angle. It is intended to mount on the tables edge. I was leary of my purchase until I corrected the drift of my 1 1/4" Laguna blade with the simple turn of the wheel. It rips straight as an arrow and with the 8" fence and grizzly baby feeder 1/16" slices within 1000 of an inch purpleheart. Pierre
Will the LAGUNA Driftmaster Fence fit my 14" Delta Bandsaw?
JOEL F on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this fence for my Laguna 14" SUV. It look major modifications to get it to fit correctly. For your saw, I would recommend finding something different. I have problems opening the doors to change blades. This was designed for large and heavy duty saws. Good luck.
will this work with the Rikon 10-346?
woodworks on May 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My guess would be yes. I have it on a rikon 10-351 and it works just fine, would be plenty large for your 18 inch saw.
will this work with a Gizzly 19" extreme bandsaw??
JOEL F on Feb 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Joel, It has been several months since you posted this question. I have the Grizzly 513X2 19" and it works marvously well. The table is just large enough to clamp the Grizzly baby feeder to it directly. What a difference a feede makes when ripping. Love my setup. Pierre
Will this fence fit a Steel City 16" bandsaw?
Bob P on Jan 5, 2017
