Wise Buys: Bandsaw Fences

Woodhaven, #7280

Editor test-drive

I want my bandsaw fence to be intuitive to use, easy to take off and put back on, and have T-slots for mounting jigs and accessories. Woodhaven's fence does all that and more. It starts with two 24"-long aluminum rails that mount to the holes in my saw's table, with no drilling needed. These rails slide left and right when not locked, giving me plenty of options for fence position. And, although the fence can't simply be lifted off the rails, it's only a five-second job to slide the rails to the right and then the fence to the left. No blade removal is required.

The fence itself is 24" long and 3" tall with eight T-slots, and holds solidly without deflecting. It's easy to adjust square to the table and to correct blade drift. I like the included handy stop that mounts in the T-slots and prevents cutting into tenon shoulders. Finally, Woodhaven sells this fence with an optional circle-cutting attachment (#7285) that mounts onto the ends of the fence rails, enabling you to cut circles up to 31 1/2" in diameter.
