Hello guys, I just got my first (heavy) table saw, it's an old Craftsman 152.221040 (zipcode table saw). The price was very good ($75 on CL + 1 hour drive) but it's missing the fence/rail and it came with one wing (cast iron instead of metal :smile:). Can you guys tell me a good but not to expensive Fence? I read that the Delta T2 was the best bang for the buck but they don't sell it anymore.

I'm really need something good for my DIY projects, my budget is up to $200 (if is possible). I don't want to get the original if for few more dollars I can get something better.

Thank you in advance!!!

That is not old, I think they started to sell around 2001.

I used to have the 22124 purchased in 2003, which had the full length cabinet and slightly larger 1 3/4HP motor. A good saw, I passed it onto my best friend.

Delta's site shows the fence as a product, but since they were sold in 2011, the parts distribution has been awful. One site Toolbarn is showing the T2 as "On Manufacturer Back-Order Ship January 2014".

As C'man stated, many of the "T" style fences are good.

I think having to get a fence will put this saw over your $200 by a lot, unless you can find a fence on CL or EBay.

I see this Grizzly Shop Fox fence on EBay for $175.

I ordered the T2 from Toolbarn, but after waiting for more than 2 weeks I sent an email regarding the status, I was told that they ship from the manufacturer and they don't have an ETA yet, that's why they changed the 7~10 days to January 2014.
I can spend a little more, but I don't want to spend over $300 for the fence and rails. I saw many that are over 350+, keep in mind that I'm new to this, which mean that some terms I will not understand, but when you said T fence, they call it that way because the rail system right?

I had the Vega PRO 40 on my cart on Amazon for 241+, but at that time I placed my order for the T2, when I got the mail from toolbarn regarding the status, the Vega Pro 40 went to 280+.

Thank you guys

EDIT: I will check the reviews of the Fox fence, I'm looking for something that is better than the original, thanks
