Default Biesemeyer Fence

The other day I acquired what I think is a sweet little Jet, JTAS-10-1 table saw which came with a Biesemeyer Fence System.

The only problem is that the front rail is a little too big for my shop. It is the 10 foot version. 8 feet 4 inches to the right and almost 2 feet to the left.

Anyone know someone in the Las Vegas area that would like to trade for a shorter rail?

Good luck finding a trade. Can you cut off part of the right rail? Or order the short rail from the manufacturer? The endcaps on the front rail also act as stops for the fence, and on my saw, the caps are easy to re-attach.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I've never seen a saw with a fence that long. Especially on a 10" saw. You could just cut it shorter couldn't you? About the only prospects you have for a trade would be to a commercial shop. The number of home shops large enough to have that are few and far between.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I did get this saw from a commercial cabinet shop. So I assume they had need to cut sheet goods down from 8 feet.

Cry just a little when you do cut it.... it's a shame you don't have room for it's full potential. I wish I had room for a fence tube that big

After I bought a track saw , I’m kicking myself for buying a cabinet saw with a 56” fence . I’m tempted to cut it down to 36” somedays.
I wasn’t aware of track saws till I joined here , and find there much handier for breaking down large sheets than trying to manhandle a full sheet by yourself on a table saw.
Was actually going to build a panel saw , then the same thing , I learned about track saws just in time
