Shop-Made Auxiliary Fence

By: Erich Lage
Often needed, a sacrificial fence comes in handy when milling wood at the table saw. This version will fulfill those duties for a long time.

W210 005f01 Wood auxiliary rip fences come in handy on the table saw. But it’s tough to secure them without the clamps getting in the way of the cut. I solved that problem with the simple fence you above. W210 006a01 The fence consists of four layers. The two outer layers are cut to the length of your rip fence. W210 005f01 detail The two middle layers are each made up of three parts, with gaps wide enough to accommodate the clamp heads. I left all of the pieces a little wide and then ripped the whole assembly to final width after it was glued together. The design could also be modified for resawing on the band saw by making one outer layer taller. Charles Mak Calgary, Alberta
