From the Manufacturer
Upgrade your saw to a precise cutting machine at a reasonable price with the Vega PRO 50 Table Saw Fence System. Includes 42-Inch Fence Bar, 50-Inch to Right. It was specially designed to use the existing bolt holes (no drilling required) of Delta Unisaws and Contractors Saws, Powermatic Model 66 and most Sears 10-inch saws. Little accuracy is needed as the fence mounting system allows full adjustment. (Installation may be as little as 15 minutes).
Top Customer Reviews
The instructions were adequate to get the fence installed, but certainly not stellar. I found them vague where I would prefer precision (snug bolts down "very tightly" instead of giving a torque value) and overly fussy for fairly simple steps. On my ancient saw, I was able to use the original holes tapped into the table for the original fence (though I had to dig up fasteners on my own). Jacking screws allow for very precise vertical adjustments (from the top of the table to the bottom of the fence). The system allows for an inch or more of horizontal adjustment; I found it simple to set it up to get accurate readings from the pre-installed measuring tape. Aligning the fence with the miter slots was also a snap (and far easier than with the old Shop Fox).
I had some concerns about fit and finish after reading reviews here, and indeed there are some rough edges. The end cap of the fence is just a crudely cut piece of sheet metal, and there are sharp burrs under the head unit, which you're likely to notice every time you remove the fence. The front (chrome) guide tube shipped with a couple of plastic end caps, but they're so flimsy it's hard to say if they were meant to be tossed with the carton. I've kept them on for now, but would wish for a nice finished piece to cap off the ends. The rear, square, bars have no caps whatsoever. Still, most of the exposed, working surfaces are smooth and nicely finished.
I used dry-lube (PTFE spray) on the guide bars, which provided for very smooth operation. The fence stays parallel during movement and locks down square, and my concerns about the T-bar style fence are pretty much gone. Overall, I'm pleased; I never thought I'd get this kind of precision from my old "contractor" saw.
The Vega Pro 50 fit my Craftsman 10” perfectly with no need for any drilling whatever. The 50” (to the left of the blade) is big – very big – so make certain you have enough room around the saw. The 10” (to the right of the blade) is wonderful because it now provides a fence for my Benchdog Pro-max cast iron router table extension when pieces are larger than the Benchdog fence can accommodate. The price was acceptable to me.
Installation of the Vega Pro 50 fence was very straightforward. I had the old fence hardware off and the new hardware on in less than an hour working by myself. Adjustments to establish squareness to the blade and accuracy of the ruler were easily accomplished, although it took 2 rounds to get the squareness exactly right. A good combination square is very helpful to establish this. Be sure to apply substantial force when tightening the fence alignment Allen bolts to prevent future movement with use.
I would recommend the saw blade being the one you use most often when fine-tuning the accuracy of the ruler. Fortunately if the ultimate in precision is important to you there is a micro-tuning mechanism to handle the small blade-to-blade differences. Reproducibility of the fence (moving it away from a position, then returning it once again) is adequate for my purposes, the error being less than 0.010". Most if not all of that error is my inability to better read the ruler on the fence guide. Better lighting would no doubt help there.
