The T2 is a good fence. I'm prone to Biesemeyer and Unifence.

The T2 is a great bang for the buck when you can find it for < $200. Once the price climbs much north of that, I'd look into a Vega or Shop Fox Classic.

the only issue i can think of is that the plastic (HDPE) pad and lift prevention hook that are attached to the fence near the rear to help it ride on the rear rail and not lift up off the rear rail may need to by relocated on the fence as the rear rail will probably be 5" closer to the front rail.

So what did you do, use some spacers to move the rear rail further back from the table?

Nice that you could adapt it. I put one on my Delta CS a while back & it made a huge difference in the saw.

No just moved the little slide on the fence itself forward.

You could add an extension on the back of the saw, then mount the rail to that....you'd gain some table area that way. Or you could just move the rear pad back.
