Bandsaw fence

Keep your blade on track

Bandsaws are like after-dinner speakers: They're a lot more enjoyable if they don't wander too far off course. Here's the jig you need to produce nice, straight cuts. Begin by cutting the pieces and assembling them as shown in the drawings, available in pdf below. Once you have all the parts assembled, position the fence on your bandsaw, and tighten the 3/8" handle to secure the fence in place. Test-rip on a piece of scrap, and alternately loosen one machine screw and tighten the other until the fence is parallel to the cutting track of the blade. Be sure to loosen and tighten the screws the same amount to avoid bowing the fence.
