Gents,

I just purchased a very nice Delta 34-441 tablesaw. It came with a unifence, however the rail for the system is missing.

I intend to use this saw in the garage. I have a PM66 in the basement with a Powermatic (Biesemeyer) fence.

I have tried to find a used rail on the internet (eBay, Craigslist, etc), so far without luck. It appears to have been discontinued, so I haven't been able to find a new one either.

I am considering looking for a Biesemeyer rail for the Delta saw and share the fence I have on the PM66.

I would like some guidance in going forward. Any help appreciated.

I'm not completely sure but I think these guys have the parts your looking for. If it was mine I'd try to get the rail. I have the Unisaw with the 50 and I wouldn't replace it with any other. http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/schematic.cgi/delta/36-150

The Bies is so simple I've owned one and built two. They are just too easy to build to buy.

I just sold a fence rail a few months ago! Have the same saw with a Beisemeyer on it and am very happy with it. While the Unifence is very nice, I always had a problem when I wanted to make a jig that sat on the fence because of the unusual shape. I like the Biesemeyer a lot better.

Al,

First, I love the message in your signature. I called the vendor today. They said not to expect shipment for at least 6 months. No thanks. Unless something else comes up, I think I will transfer my Biesemeyer fence to the Delta from the PM when I want to work outside.

Thanks for the response.

Bob

Thanks. Best of luck with the saw. Nothing wrong with a Beisy.
