Table Saw Fence Systems

A solid, precise fence is crucial to a table saw's ability to make rip cuts safely, cleanly and accurately, but not all standard-issue fences are as robust as they ought to be. The Vega Saw Fence System locks parallel to the saw blade, includes accurate measuring scales, maintains alignment and allows for fine adjustments. It's designed for quick mounting by using existing mounting holes on Delta Unisaws and contractor saws, Powermatic Model 66 saws, most Sears 10" table saws and most other saws with fence rail mounting holes 8"-9" on either side of the blade (other saws may require drilling two or four mounting holes.) The fence system includes slotted front brackets to allow vertical and horizontal adjustments and jacking plates to help with leveling the fence rails. Available with 26" or 50" rip capacity to the right of the blade and 8" to the left. These fences are not for jobsite saws.

Vega table saw fence
After reading all the reviews I decided to purchase the smaller fence. Have a Craftsman table saw for 25 years and the inaccuracy of the fence makes wood working a hit or miss adventure. Installed the fence and what a difference. Now I can feel like a real craftsmen instead of a weekend warrior. Highly recommend this product.

You will not regret buying this
I bought the Pro version of this fence which is longer. This fence works great and is an incredible upgrade to an older table saw. Very high quality from a great small company.

Finally the accuracy I’ve always dreamed of!
I have an old Craftsman table saw that I purchased new in the late 1980’s. Good heavy cast iron...a very nice saw... but the rip fence was always the weak link, and I suffered with it from day 1. About 6 years ago, I bit-the-bullet and bought this Vega system. I was not prepared for the joy and confidence this one upgrade would give me. Yes, I had to drill a couple holes into the cast iron of my table saw, but it was easy enough...used a cordless drill to do that. Now here I am, about 6 years later and I still love and recommend this Vega fence. I use it every single day (seriously, 6 days per week at least). I still love the design and the heft of this rip fence. Don’t suffer any longer with a crappy fence that is inaccurate and does not lock square to your blade...it will cause your work to be shoddy and is often unsafe. If you’ve been on the fence about getting one (no pun intended), I would recommend pulling the trigger. To this day, I marvel and smile every time I use her!
Nice accurate readout. Once you set this up, it is dead-accurate.
Easy bolting of the brackets to the saw.

Easy to install and easy to use
I purchased this fence system about a year ago. I waited to do this review to have a chance to really get to know this product. I am very pleased to say this fence is a great product. It is accurate, simple and easy to use. Thank you Vega for a quality product.

Should have got this years ago
As many have said, why in the heck did I not buy this years ago. I have a 30 year old 113 craftsman saw. The fence on that saw was always a pain. I purchased this and thanks to two youtube videos by other woodworkers (seek them out you will need them) it made it clearer how to install. The instructions are there but not logical in many ways and copied so many time you can barely read the numbers in the poorly drawn diagrams. I had to drill holes for the front and back on my saw. Two for the front and one for the back. Not hard to do. I also had to remove the measuring tape on the front rail and move it to the right one inch in order to line up the saw blade with '0'. The tape pulled up slowly but without much problem and there was enough glue still on it to restick it back down without adding contact cement. After a final adjustment to ensure square, it works like a dream. It also has a micro-adjustment. Love it.

Great upgrade.
I have a 30 yr old 10" Craftsman table saw that had the original fence on it. Needless to say it never cut straight. After installing the Vega Fence the saw became a precision instrument.

NO PROBLEMS! Great fence!
I hate to sound like a broken record but I also put the 50 inch fence on an old (30+) Craftsman 10 inch contractor saw. Like everyone else I struggled and outright cursed the OEM fence that originally came with the saw.
I started some cabinets for my daughter and after fighting and losing with the OEM fence I purchased the Vega 50.
Here is where I seem to go in a different direction than most of the other people that purchased this fence. I did watch the videos on installation and I did read reviews until my eyes were crossed. I held my breath and purchased the Vega 50.
The box came in perfect condition, there was no oil, burrs or any other production problems that I could find. As a side note, in an earlier life I also was a machinist and also deplore burrs on machined surfaces. I think that the complaints about the instructions come from rank novices or those with no mechanical ability. I found the instructions easy to understand with no head scratching or clarification needed.
I am writing this review almost a year after I installed the Vega 50 system. I can tell you that I literally asked my wife to come out and watch me make a cut with the new fence. Every time I use my saw I now giggle like a little kid! It works just like it did when I installed it last year.
I recently found a used PowerMatic 66 table saw for three hundred dollars. Needless to say it is going to need some work. Nothing that some elbow grease can't fix but it did not come with a fence. Guess what? Hello Vega 50!
Overall if you have an old saw that won't cut straight consistently, you owe the saw a Vega fence. I am completely pleased with the performance of the fence and I think that you get what you pay for. Dollar value for performance of this fence is fantastic.

Vega 26 on Craftsman
My Craftsman contractor saw came with a Align A Rip 24/24 fence that was just ok. Soon after, I purchased a Biesemeyer fence for it and it was a very good upgrade and 100% reliable. In a weak moment I was offered three times what I paid for it and sold it after 10+ years of great service. I then put the original 24/24 fence back on it. At the time I assumed that it would be no problem finding a new fence that was as good as the Biesemeyer but that was not the case. I finally decided to buy the Vega 26 because of the micro adjust feature and I am very happy with this purchase and the fences performance. Assembly was very easy and the adjustments are 100% accurate.

Craftsman owners I have a bit of info that may help you. Because of my original fence I did not have to drill an additional hole on the backside of the fence so if your table has three holes on each side of the table you will not have to either. If you do, do not worry as cast iron is very easy to drill. Also, wait to set your rail height until you set your fence clearance. I set my rails to the exact referenced height and it was not even close. I put 1/16" shims under my fence and then set my rail height.

This fence has turned out to be more than what I was expecting and I would have paid much more for this fence knowing what I know now.

Great Addition
this is a great addition to my saw! the fence was easy to install, it took 20 minutes and i didn't have to drill any holes to install on my Craftsman saw. it arrived, all the pieces were there and all parts in great condition. easy to install and adjust. the micro adjust works great. i recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade from the factory fence.

Wanted to upgrade an old Craftsman 10" table saw, and read reviews on the Rockler website about this fence. I was especially interested in the lever quick lock feature and the mico adjust feature. My original fence is difficult to fine adjust for precise cuts. I was also interested in many reviews that indicated that it fit the older Craftsman saws. Hopefully that includes mine.

Hi - Anyone know if this will work on a Hitachi C10FL hybrid table saw?

I have a Kobalt contractor saw and looking for a fence that will work with few if any modifications. Has anyone installed one of these on a Kobalt ?
Chris N on Mar 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not know if it would fit a Kobalt saw but I think it would, as most of the parts are simple to install. I just had to drill some holes in my saw to make it fit the fence. I tell you though, that having a reliable fence has made me such a better wood worker. In the past I was reluctant with my old Craftsman fence as I could not get two cuts the exact same length. I really amaze my self as I am doing a bathroom remodel and everything fits! It takes so much frustration out and makes wood projects enjoyable.
I hope this helps even though I could not get you a direct answer.

Good luck; a good fence whatever brand is so worth the investment.

I. Have an old craftsman 10" table saw I need to replaced my rail and fence do not know what size to get..?
John H on Feb 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I bought my 10" Craftsman table saw in 1976. I purchased the 26" Vega system, because of the size of my work area in my basement (most of the space is a finished basement). It is an easy installation, but I did have to relocate the "on/off switch" to the saw and drill a few holes in the base of the saw for some of the brackets. I am very pleased with this product. A satisfied customer.
Question regarding this fence and installation - I currently have my table saw built into my workbench. This includes the outfeed section behind as well as on each side of the saw. My question relates to the rear rail - and whether it is required to be installed since it appears its main function is to provide support for the fence button. Would a piece of smooth metal or similar placed at the right distance from the top of the table surface suffice ? (presuming one does not intend to use the rear lock down feature of the system) ? Im asking because I would have to cut a space behind my saw as it currently stands to allow for the installation of this rear bar and wanted to see if a flat surface for the button to slide on is good enough.

Hope this makes sense. Thanks in advance.
Gail B on Mar 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As long as the front rail keeps the rip fence securely attached and does not allow any swing of the fence, I would believe that a surface such as you describe would work in place of the rear rail. You absolutely must have the front rail, however.

I am looking for a replacement Fence system for a Jet JWSS-10LFR. What are the choices if any?
Gil A on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The VEG fence system attaches to the saw's table using sliding T-Nuts that are slid to the hole positions of the target saw table. My VEGA installation was quite easy on my new Craftsman saw. Over all I like it very much.

On the negative side, the fence components arrived dirty (greasy), rusty and had paint overspray on the head piece that is supposed to slide easily on the rail piece. I would expect to be fired as as quality inspector for shipping the unit I received. After about two hours of cleaning the fence was successfully installed and work very well after a year of use. There are other fence systems out there so let Google help you find them.
Hi, will this work well on a Porter Cable 3812?
bob s on May 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I was not familiar with the Porter Cable 3812 so I looked at a few pictures on the web. The 3812 seems to be a small "contractor" type portable table saw meant for transporting between job sites and as a result has a fairly small table. Realize the Vega fence is 36" front to back and the short rail is 26". That looks to be about 2X the size of the 3812 table. I would think if you are going to mount the Vega fence to a 3812, some serious cutting of the fence and rail will be in order. I am not going to say it cannot be done, but it will require more work than mounting to the typical Craftsman or like table saw.
Does anyone know if this will fit on a Ridged 4511 table saw without any drilling?
Robert F on Apr 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Robert,

I do not know anything about Rigid saws but I imagine that you would have to do some drilling on any saw as is is for general applications. It did not do anything to the integrity of my saw by drilling on it but it sure did make my saw so much more reliable and usable on higher quality projects.

Good Luck,

Greg

Will this fit Jet 10" Jobsite Table Saw w/ Stand, Model JBTS-10MJS ?

'
Benny C on Jan 4, 2018
Thinking about purchasing this for my 10" Jet table saw. One question is what do you do about support out at the end of the rails? I noticed on Shop Fox's model that they have legs that support the rails and wood.
Brian I on Dec 21, 2017
What is the exact length of the fence itself? I am building a custom table saw top that is going to be 36" from front edge to back edge.
David B on Jul 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Total length of fence is 36" which includes the lock mechanism. if your top is 36" you will need a longer fence. Also if you saw is a contractors saw (sears) like mine you will lose tilt on the blade. I cannot do a 45 degree cut anymore. The tilt mechanism hits the far table saw fence rail and stop you from tilting the blade all the way to 45 degree.Hope this helps.
How long is the fence bar on the 50" system? I know from vega wood working they have different length options.
Ace87 on Nov 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The actual bar is 72". The section to the right of the blade is 50", so you can cut 48" without a problem.
25 year old Craftsman Saw, will this fit my saw and how much adapting will I need to get it to fit?
Harry P on Jun 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I adapted this to my Craftsman which is just as old and had very little modification requirements
Does this fit older craftsmen table saws? My table depth is 26 inches.
Ken L on May 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ken this should fit just fine. I too have an old Craftsman table saw (38 years ) and its depth is 27 inches. You might have to tweak the slide on the top rail but that is no biggy. I did slighty. You will enjoy the fence when you line it up. Rock solid. You will want to build an outfeed and side table if you haven't already. I did. It put new life into my table saw. Hope that helps.
Is there any chance I could modify it for a metric scale. Like a measuring tape or something to attach to the original scale?
Emil T on Dec 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Your best bet would be remove the attached Imperial tape, clean off the residue with a solvent, then attach a new tape, which shouldn't be a tough job. I have had this fence for a year or two now and it is holding up well.
I have a craftsman series 100 saw how well will this fence adapt to it?
Larry S on Dec 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My Craftsman saw is about 35 years old - don’t know the model or series. I am very pleased with the fence you are considering. The biggest imprevement is that it is always square to the cutting blade, unlike the fence that came with the saw. Measuring the width of the cut is also much easily reduced than it used to be. Installation required drilling a couple holes into the frame so i could get the ruler on the fence lined up correctly. That wasn’t hard to do. short answer - I love the fence and it wasn’t hard to attach.
Can someone tell me the length of the front and rear rails on the Vega 26?
Vance R on May 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Front Rail is 48", Rear Rail is 40" and Fence is 36". I still like this fence system after living with it for a year or so.
What is the length of the fence? I am planning on a saw table depth of 27 inches from front to rear edge. Is the fence system big enough to install with that table depth?
KEITH M on Dec 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Keith, I installed one on a 27" deep table, and it fits fine with plenty of overhang. The saw is an old 1970s vintage Craftsman 10". The fence itself is 36-1/8" long. The fence was a great upgrade and I can do much more precision work now. It is solidly-built.
Will this attach to a 113 model craftsman saw? Not sure how old it is. It was my dad's. The saw has slotted mount holes in the table. And the table top flange is 1 1/2" tall.
Ace87 on Sep 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: ACe87, I looked up your midel 113 and it looks almost identical to mine. I had to drill two holes in the saw table but the fence works great and has brought my table saw back to life. I had previously fixed my old fence several times but always had to measure both front and back to make sure the fence was square. Now it is measure once and lock the fence and it is right on. Well worth the little bit of work drilling the two holes. It will fit your saw with the extra work but will be like having a new saw.
How do you align fence with saw blade ?
Jimmy on May 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: On the end of the fence there are two screws... both ends. remove the plate and the name plate will slid off. under the name plate on the clamp end of the fence are 4 holes with allen bolts below. Loosen these up and align the fence to the blade then tighten the allen bolts. Check the alignment. when satisfied simply slide the name plate back in and replace the end plate with the two screws. very simple.
what is the difference between the two fences?

BEST ANSWER: The short one fits right on your saw, the long one extends about another 2 feet off the right side of your saw. It needs support that you would build on to your saw. The advantage is that you could cut large panels, the disadvantage is that your saw would take up a lot of space. I bought the small one and it is fantastic. Has made my cuts much more accurate. Just as an aside, I recently bought the Gri-ripper from Rockler and love it too. It adds a large degree of saftey.
Do you have to mount the real rail? Trying to mount this to my work bench. Thanks
Chris C on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I assume you mean the rear rail (square tube). It's only function is to support the rear end of the fence. There is a small plastic, or hard rubber, support piece that attaches to the bottom of the fence near the back which rides on the rear rail. In my opinion, if there is another smooth hard surface for that support to ride on, the rear rail would not be necessary.
