By the sounds (and looks haha) of things, it doesn't seem like you use your table saw too terribly much?
That is correct.
I think making "passable" might be more prudent than dropping a couple hundred bucks on something you may not use too much? You can do some cool stuff with extrusions and they really arent THAT expensive.
I suppose I can, but, as I said: I'm disinclined to add another project to the pile.
Besides which: One of the problems with the Jet Lock fence is its front-and-back locking system. It's prone to pushing itself out-of-parallel when you lock it down, no matter how
carefully you lock it down. Nine-times-out-of-ten it'll do what I want. It's that tenth time it doesn't that gets you.
As for the rail replacements, I meant those bolts can be an absolute night mare to change out. If ones stuck, or if its "awkward" at all and you dont have some helping hands, it can just be a pain is all. Not undoable by any means, its just getting really really cold out for that kinda stuff. (do you have an indoor or outdoor shop?)
Noted. I'll take it under advisement in making my decision.
Don't get me wong, Bob. I'm not discounting your suggestions out-of-hand. E.g.: I've actually already considered trying to beef up the existing fence system. Problem is: There's little I can reasonably do to overcome its inherent weaknesses.
The Delta Jet Lock system is fairly well-renowned for those weaknesses.
