WOOD magazine review

Excalibur EXTT45/78 Rip Fence

Review Summary

High points: Tied with the Incra for the least deflection (.001") in the test. Glides smoothly across the tabletop,yet locks securely and parallel to the blade. Low points: When we moved the fence left of the blade,the out-of-parallel right fence face caused stock to pinch between the fence and blade. Light-color cursor can be difficult to read.
More points: Drilling into your saw’s cast-iron table is required for installation,but the factory- supplied gauge makes locating and drilling the mounting holes simple. Our fence was .007" out of square with the tabletop, and there’s no adjustment to correct it. Excalibur’s Graham Wray says that’s outside of their acceptable tolerance and that the fence would be replaced under warranty.
