Hello, I recently purchased a JET JTS-10, this model was made in 1987 and has the round pole type fence guide on each side of the table. The fence itself of course can only slide on round guides, the problem here is i would like to build an extension off of the right side so i can cut larger stock. Has anyone ever made an extension table with one of these saws? I am going to have to find two pieces of pole the same size and accurately line up the poles so the fence can keep sliding and stay straight. Any advice would be cool! Thanks.

Ditch that whole set up and get a Biesemeyer or clone, type fence if you intend to keep the saw any longer than a week. You will never look back. Trying to match up 2 round "poles" of the "same" diameter will require more luck than you have at a horse racing track. Odds are 20 to 1 or greater. You said "any" advice so there is mine! bill
BTW one of our guys here garryswf made his own fence a take off on the Biesemeyer and did a great job. But he has a friend with a welder! TS fence and Rails
I never engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed combatant, but I do enjoy a well reasoned and rational discussion with a worthy adversary.
