The Ultimate Table Saw Fence

The ultimate table saw fence for a cheap entry level table saw.I built this fence out off hardwood with double rails in the Biesemeyer style, with a sliding shop made fence lock.I used a 50 mm Aluminium angle to carry the fence in the saw mounted channel,I faced the fence with Melamine after ensuring alignment.
My spec was that it should operate  like a high end fence

I have lived in the uk since i was a small child, my family are from Rimini which is on the Italian Adriatic coast.

My passionate is to create thing with my hands which led me to find work has a carpenter in the boat industry. I love all aspects of DIY and all what I can achieve working with my hands. This as led me into many activities that I turned into passions and hobbies, such as painting,cooking,carpentry,photography, and the desire to travel. I love to travel the world. I also love walking my dogs along the Norfolk coast where we have a mobile holiday home each step in the fresh air is a new discovery, with wonderful wildlife and the flocks of seabirds are an amazing sight to behold as they swoop and turn as one while exiting the dogs.
