This auxiliary fence add-on puts light where you need it

When it comes to using a tablesaw, having plenty of light to see what you’re doing is essential. Although adding a worklight to most tools requires little effort, the tablesaw is a bit more of a challenge—the light can’t be in the way of the cutting operation, meaning it usually ends up too far away from the blade to be of any benefit. A simple solution: Add a hole in the edge of an auxiliary rip fence and insert a worklight with a post mount on its base. The worklight stays out of the way, but shines directly on the blade.
