Wise Buys: Bandsaw Fences

Kreg, #KMS7200

Editor test-drive:

My bandsaw's factory fence is always on the saw. Not because I love it, but because I have to remove the blade before I can slide the fence off the right end of the rail! And that's one of the main reasons I replaced it with the Kreg KMS7200, which lifts on and off anywhere along its rail. The lock holds the 2-3/8"-tall fence securely when resawing, even with long workpieces that apply greater force against the fence. Fine-adjustment screws on the fence make it easy to counter blade drift. The fence sports T-slots on both faces as well as the top and bottom of the fence. So I can lay it sideways to reach under the blade guides for short, thin rips. The microadjuster accessory (#KMS7215) proved dead-on and well worth the price. It mounts to the left side of the fence and helps precisely dial in a rip cut. I used the microadjuster to find the exact center of a 3/4"-thick piece of red oak and resawed it at that point. The resulting cut showed almost no difference in thickness from end to end when checked with a caliper.

This must be an old review as this Rockler bandsaw fence is not listed on their website.
