I rebuilt a old Davis-Wells bandsaw awhile back and have been using it off and on - mainly for rough sawing blanks and minor things for woodturning - Using a 3/8" 3 TPI carbon steel blade - the blade works fine for what im using it for but i do get drift - The table is solid with no cross cut grooves, nor brackets for a fence. So I decided I would look into getting one to improve my cutting - I looked around at the following options :
Davis-Wells original fence - found a source but costly - plus it is not the quality that fences are now a days.
Kreg but for my table 25" + square I do not think Kreg makes what I would need.
Grizzley makes what looks like a decent one but still I am not that impressed.
Laguna Drift Master - a bit costly but looks like the best of what I have seen so far - a little more money perhaps but far better in quality.
Anybody else restore or add on a fence to one of these older machines ? I am asuuming a couple of holes thru the cast table and bolts will attach the Laguna or tap it
