Default Universal Rip Fence

Hi,

Here is a photo of a rip fence that I'm trying to build. .

I'm stuck on a granular detail: how does one attach the 4 angled supports (like triangles) to ensure a 90 deg angle. Do you glue them in? Screw them in? Glue and screw them in? Incidentally, my failed thought of the morning was this: I tried to dado out the grooves for the pieces and then figured I'd glue them into the joint. But, the joint was too narrow and the pieces wouldn't fit. And, to make it worse, the depth of my (new, can't you tell!) router was imprecise.

I'd be willing to try dado grooves again.

I also thought about just taking a 2x2 and running it the length of the fence and then screwing into the board -- that should ensure the 90 deg angle I'd think. My frustration here is that I'm trying to make a precision piece so I can have more precise and safe cuts; so, I don't want to half-ass it; but, I don't know whether my solutions are viable in this precision piece.

Ugh.

Any help appreciated.

--Craig.

I can't see the pic, but most rip fences for the table saw are adjustable, utilizing bolts to adjust to square. They are also normally made of steel or aluminium.

Hello!
I' d like to see a pict ,make a few posts and after you will reach 10 posts
Then the posting of attachement and web links should work

It's quite possible to reach the accuracy you want, a dadoo not necessary
gluing is a must for it could not move.

The side looking at saw must be perfect flat one piece, no assembly this side
You may use screws for assembly while glue dries up but then got to recess
them and use a wood filler , sand it flat.

a 2x2 never is square, or never really stays in time.

Regards
