    Laguna Driftmaster Bandsaw Fence Upgrade

    Anybody have the recently introduced Driftmaster bandsaw fence from Laguna? I am considering installing it on my MM20. I especially like its ability to adjust on-the-fly for drift and the microadjustment for cutting veneers without having to rejoint after each cut.

    How involved is its installation?

    Boy that is one cool fence!

    Tod, I understand the Driftmaster runs about $275.

    In recreational boating, a "Boat Buc" is each $1000 spent on upgrading and maintaining one's boat. I've discovered, unfortunately, that it's real easy to spend Boat Bucs.

    I suppose a "Wood Buc" might be equivalent to $100. So in those terms, the Driftmaster costs nearly three Wood Bucs!
