Default I need a cheap table fence craftsman

I picked up a craftsman model# 25481 but the fence is missing.

I don't want to spend a great deal of money on this because I doubt I will use it much.

Anyone know where I can pick up a replacement fence for this or a cheap after market one?

A good straight 2X4 works in a pinch.

Looking at the photo on the sears website it looks like a molded tee-slot in the table. You might be able to find carrage bolts to fit head down or make some steel or aluminum pieces to fit the slots and tap them. Then all you need is a couple of flat straight boards to make a fence. The review's on the sears site were not very good about the fence or miter guage so you may as well make a DIY fence. In a pinch any straight wood and a pair of C-clamps will work.
