I bought this fence and rail from SC about 1.5 year ago. At that time I believe I paid around $299 + shipping. It's a great fence, very solid.I talked to SC today and they said the industrial fence model # is 35627 for $359.00 + shipping. It includes 50" Right rail. I don't want to spend that much.
Grizzly's had it on sale for $153 for a long time ($170 shipped).
Looks like a Biesemeyer clone. I put a Jet Xacta fence (Biesemeyer clone) on my Unisaw. I just had the fence and no rails or tube.
I went to a steel supplier and bought a 3/16" wall 2" x 3" tube, and some angle iron. I wanted 1/8" wall, but they didn't have it. The orig. is more like 1/16" wall.
The tube works great. The fence doesn't raise up as much, when using stock feeder or feather boards to hold the stock down.
Extra weight can only help things also. Not to mention I use it as an anvil at times!
I think the steel ran me about $65.
Ok....so I need to find someplace cheaper to get steel......I need to do the same thing for a unisaw my brother in law has.......but the steel place here wants over 200 bucks for the rails and tube.....
