Rabbet-Cutting Fence

Rabbet-Cutting Fence

Here's a no-clamp way to add a sacrificial rabbet-cutting fence to your saw's regular fence. Bruce's box fence fits over his T-square-style rip fence; when the MDF side gets trashed, he easily replaces it. This model is Bruce's second stab at the box fence, adding several improvements along the way. An aluminum T-track tucks snugly into a 3/4" dado 1/2" deep in the MDF, allowing him to tighten the bolts securing the feather board to the sacrificial face of the box. "This provides much smoother movement and better lockdown of the feather board and other attachments than with just the regular fence," Bruce explains. The two handles on top help when he moves the fence around the shop for storage or when he sets it in place over the regular fence. On the side facing away from the camera, two built-in clamping screws, made using brass T-bolts, attach the auxiliary box fence securely to his rip fence.
