Table Saw Fence System Using Aluminum Extrusions (80/20) For Under $150

Table Saw Fence System Using Aluminum Extrusions (80/20) For Under $150

Check out the latest design of our fence system:

Hey Guys! In this video I show a table saw fence system I designed and installed on my trusty Craftsman 113 table saw. This was all built using aluminum extrusions and has been working great for me. It has great accuracy and ease of adjustment and I was able to keep the parts cost under $150.

    Would this fit on porter cable pcb270ts?



  3. John James on November 3, 2022 at 4:12 am

    I’m on the fence



  4. Clive Geezer on November 3, 2022 at 4:13 am

    What a fantastic idea & setup. Ive been looking for while for this type of innovative system. I will order the extrusions straight away. Very well done, & many thanks for sharing you idea.

    Anyone got a link to these sliders? I have all the parts to built a similar fence but cant find any of the sliders



  6. Mike Merc on November 3, 2022 at 4:19 am

    How much did this set up cost?



  7. Super Specialty on November 3, 2022 at 4:19 am

    I enjoy creating but I take into account the complete cost of the project vs what is already available. TY 4 the brainstorming!



  8. __ Grobies __ on November 3, 2022 at 4:21 am

    Can this be installed onto a Makita MLT100N take saw



  9. muhmmad jahanzaib on November 3, 2022 at 4:22 am

    Вот я хочу такой же упор



  11. Tom Ludwig on November 3, 2022 at 4:23 am

    Hi, I just bought a Craftsman 113 yesterday and ordered a Delta T3 30" fence. Love your solution.



  12. JangoTech on November 3, 2022 at 4:28 am

    Really good



  13. pat dee on November 3, 2022 at 4:28 am

    It would’ve been much better if you had shown us "HOW" you made it in detail. I hope you will do this in the future. It would be great.

    where do I find Sliding Mechanism? 1.15 ?



  15. Thayla Tiodosio on November 3, 2022 at 4:30 am

    Hi, where do I find Sliding Mechanism?



  16. jose gonzalez on November 3, 2022 at 4:31 am

    Looks great 👍



  17. Lee on November 3, 2022 at 4:31 am

    Would you consider offering just the pieces/hw without the extrusions for those of us who have plenty of aluminum extrusions?



  18. Michael Schuler on November 3, 2022 at 4:35 am

    You can eliminate one of the locking handles by installing UHMW standoffs of identical thickness (maybe 1/8"-1/4") at the left and right ends of the bar through which the handles are bored (between that bar and the fence front guide rail), then installing a single locking handle in the center of the bar between them. This is the arrangement of clamping cam and standoffs on a Biesemeyer styled fence. One locking element is just as secure and twice as fast. You can also see many applications of a different t-slot extrusion that formed the heart of a woodworking fence and table extension system system I patented in 1990 at http://www.1-fence.com. T-slot extrusions can be used for many applications beyond the one you are starting with. Keep up the good work — you’re on the right track.

    Hello



  20. ElliottandNolan on November 3, 2022 at 4:41 am

    Seems a shame to go to that much trouble and then have no more accurate way of setting a rip width than to use a tape measure. How about building in a scale, or better still a digital readout? The WIxey units are inexpensive.

    I think it’s time to increase the activity of your channel. Perhaps G E T 4 V I E W S will help you. Thank you for the video)



  22. Martin Novotny on November 3, 2022 at 4:44 am

    What is the length of the fence extrusion?



  23. Sridhar Anandakrishnan on November 3, 2022 at 4:48 am

    Once built, how do you adjust it so it is parallel to the blade/miter slots?



  24. Charles Breaud on November 3, 2022 at 4:48 am

    What is the shipping timeline if we order the product, love the product.



  25. P F on November 3, 2022 at 4:49 am

    Great build and idea. Really like the fact that you have the ability to increase or decrease the cut size. Something you could never do with a factory made fence.



  26. For Beginners and Beyond on November 3, 2022 at 4:51 am

    Can you provide the bill of materials?



  27. John David on November 3, 2022 at 4:53 am

    Anyone think this would be better than those wood fences that people are making?



  28. BossSpringsteen69 on November 3, 2022 at 4:54 am

    Excellent work ! I’m about to build my extruded aluminum fence as well but, i’m planning on using my guide rails as a stand in for the INCRA system i want to buy. My plan is to use the sections i purchase as extensions for my in-feed and or out-feed support once the INCRA system is purchased. If i change my mind i also got a few other ways to use them.



  29. Mike Merc on November 3, 2022 at 4:54 am

    Can we get a list of parts and maybe a video of how you put together



  30. Nigel B on November 3, 2022 at 4:57 am

    This is a great fix. I’m just about to fit some 3030 rails on my cheap Clarke table here in the UK. Just need to sort out a sliding mech for the fence 👍



  31. muhmmad jahanzaib on November 3, 2022 at 4:58 am

    Hello i want this.
    What is price?



  32. David Carrillo on November 3, 2022 at 4:59 am

    would this work on a craftsman 152.221040 and your package has everything



  33. steveraynes55 on November 3, 2022 at 5:01 am

    Hi really good idea look’s just like what i have been looking for, in the video you said you would list part’s and where to purchase them, i followed the link but couldn’t find anything



  34. John Duffy on November 3, 2022 at 5:01 am

    I really like this design! I’ve been thinking about a proper fence for a long time – ever since I got my saw which is a Startrite combination machine and the fence is a joke tbh.
    Thanks for posting this 🙂



  35. joseph keo arthur on November 3, 2022 at 5:01 am

    Beautiful work . I really like those teflon sliders [underside]



  36. Mike Merc on November 3, 2022 at 5:01 am

    I just went to your website, besides a craftsman table saw can i place this on a saw with a top 21 inches front to back?



  37. Hau Pi on November 3, 2022 at 5:03 am

    I like it very much



  38. Dave Sandler on November 3, 2022 at 5:03 am

    I’ve got an old Walker-Turner 8" saw. I know I’ll have to drill mounting holes for the rails. (1) guessing this will fit and is universal, (2) do you include the UHMW spacers, and (3) since the fence doesn’t lock to the rear rail, is it really necessary?



  39. Gulshan Kapoor on November 3, 2022 at 5:06 am

    What a fantastic idea and well executed perfect job, thanks and keep sharing your ideas. Gulshan Kapoor, from Delhi ,India
