After months of trying to decide which fence to purchase to upgrade my Craftsman Contractor Table Saw I purchased 15+ years ago I decided to buy this basic no frills fence. It arrived a little late due to weather conditions back East. The mounting instructions could be a little clearer but overall installation was simple.

My first use of the fence confirmed I made the right choice. Its a basic block and tackle model, well build and expect it to outlast me. The only issues I have with it are those previous noted in other reviews which are minor nits:

1) Removal of the fence requires sliding it to the ends of the rails. Since its a long set of rails I just slide the fence out of the way rather than removing

2) Locking the fence is place is by tightening a screw handle rather than a level. Actually I think that’s a plus as I can control the about of pressure on the rails
