Which fence do you think?

I have a 25 year old Delta 62-044 contractors table saw that works perfect. I am looking for a fence that is accurate and firm. What do you recommend? I am up between the Vega Utility 26 and the Shop Fox W2005. I looked at the Beisemeyer but don't think that I am getting much more for another $175. Thanks.

I've owned all 3 that you mentioned and liked all 3. My preference at even money is the Biese, but I agree with you about the $175 premium. I liked the micro adjustment on the Vega, but prefer the ruggedness of the Shop Fox Classic (Shop Fox W2005) which is closer to the Biese. It really boils down to a matter of preference.

At ~ $155 shipped from Tools-plus.com, the Delta T2 is a heck of a bang for the buck too.
