table saw fence and rail

need help?
Been looking for a 7 or 8 foot rail and fence to upgrade my table saw fence to.
I have a hittachi table saw.

I am going to build a table to set my table saw into and put a router into it as well so I want a big rail so I can use my fence for my router to keep everything straight.

So I need your help to find a big rail and fence.


Thanks....
chris

Just about any of the aftermarket fences will fit it then....Shop Fox, Biese, Vega, Mule Cab, HTC, Incra, Unifence, etc.

For the router, sometimes a long fence is a blessing and a curse. If you are routing a longer piece of wood that is just slightly bowed, the long fence will keep the piece from seating against the table at the cutter head. Plus you might have trouble aligning the long fence on the infeed side with the outfeed fence. For me, I prefer a shorter fence on my router table. Just my two cents though.

well i was not thinking of using the fence to make long cuts.

I just wanted to get one fence and i want to use it for both the router and the table saw.

Finnished getting my new Griz saw up and running. It came with a ShopFox fence rig. This thing is crazy nice ! Heavy, smooth and very user friendly. If it hadn't come with the saw I'd have never considered spending the big bucks. Now I wouldn't consider anything lower. Can't imagine what the Incras must be like !

Actually I think the Delta T2 fence at Lowes is a better buy.
