Heh...a lot of us are retired also; basically at your beck and call!
The combined experience is about lebenty-leben bazillion dog years.

And Stick accounts for about, oh, a third of that.

I have the 18 inch, Incra miter gauge, which opens up a little longer when needed. It also has a built in "stop block," which allows you to cut multiple pieces of exactly the same length.

We haven't really spoken at length about the band saw. I agree with those who suggest you get the magnetic band saw fence. It performs the same task as the table saw fence, however, band saws have what is called drift. This means that even though you line the fence up with the blade, that for any of several reasons, the blade will likely deflect a little bit and wander to one side to the other so it won't cut perfectly parallel with the fence. A wide band saw blade and careful alignment, plus a fence may still wander if the tension on the blade is too light, or the blade isn't riding at the right spot on the two large wheels or the blade wasn't welded perfectly. In other words, band saw work is something of an art and most of us would never try to use one for straight cuts--that's the table saw's job. Still, I bet he'd love the magnetic fence. It is much easier to use than other fences. I had a Kreg fence on my old band saw and locking it down always made the fence shift when I locked it down. The mag fence stays put when you flip the magnet down.

My wife supports my woodworking addiction. A few years ago, she hired an electrician to run 3 20 amp circuits out to a post next to my workshop shed. That allowed me to wire the shed(s) for tools, heater and AC. I pay this back making picture frames for her art. By rough calculation, I've spent as much on tools as she has on quilting gear, so it all works out.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I put a link to the Kreg band saw fence early in this thread - Post #6. I guess it got lost.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

I am sorry to be such a pain but I have a question about the magnetic fence. My husband Vic has a pacemaker and defibrillator and is not supposed to be around magnets.

I am not sure how far away the magnet has to be but I will check. That sounds perfect though because I know he will get aggravated if when using the fence he has to readjust after clamping it down.

If I can get the magnetic one which would be the one to get?

If I can't get the magnetic one what would be your opinions of the other type?

Thank you so much!

I use and like the Kreg fence that MT suggested above in post #6

Sandy; the folks to ask are either the Cardiologist or the manufacturer of the pacemaker. You want to know who to sue if things go South...
But seriously, you want a definitive answer from a VERY knowledgeable source. There are very likely members here who actually have personal knowledge of those two factors, but I doubt that even they would say that in every circumstance the pacemaker and magnetic base are compatible. Why risk it?

You guys are absolutely right. As much as I like the idea of the magnetic one...I like the Hubby more!

I had the Kreg fence on my old band saw. It was fine, but I had to be careful tightening it down or it would shift. If it's on sale, that's even better.

I suggest you check on his saw to see if it has threaded holes for mounting the fence mechanism, My Laguna saw comes with a really nice built in fence that can switch from short height to tall. For resawing thick wood into thinner pieces, the ability to add a tall fence is a good thing. Bolding on a tall fence on the Kreg is pretty easy.

Love the comment about your Hubby.
