Homemade Bandsaw Fence
I made this rip fence for my bandsaw using 5/16" T-slot track (2'), T-bolts (2"), cam clamp, thumbscrew thingies, and T-nuts. The T-track is screwed to the front of the table using existing tapped holes. Edit: Later I posted about how I adjust for blade drift here. The fence has a detachable auxiliary fence (the white part) so at some point I can make a low profile fence, and maybe a high profile fence. The white fence pictured here is about 4" tall. As you can see I use the cam clamp, and a knob to secure the fence. In the future I will replace the knob with another cam because I find that the knob's rotational movement occasionally causes the fence to shift when I am tightening down. The wooden bar on the far end of the table is to support the fence when it is off the table. Later I added the miter slot cut-out to the T-track.
