  • Vega Pro 50

    Hi all,

    I just purchased a Vega pro 50" fence system that I want to use for my r4512. It's used but still in decent condition. It came with no instructions but looks pretty straight forward, but it looks like it will not align with the holes that are already there for the original fence.

    I really want to install this but I was wondering if anyone here has put one on a 4512 yet, and if so did you have to drill new holes?

    I don't feel comfortable about drilling new holes since the saw is brand new, but the fence the saw comes with is very annoying to work with and the Vega looks amazing.

    I've e-mailed Vega about this but i'm not sure if they will help me out with instructions since I bought this off craigslist. so I thought I would take a shot here and see if anyone else has put one of these on.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Ron

    Not much info on their website

    I didn't find a link to a manual or installation instructions.
    Website is bare bones if you ask me.

    ~EASY TO INSTALL

    No other Fence can be installed on your saw as easily as The Vega Saw Fence, according to American Woodworker Magazine (Oct.92) "I found the Vega Model 50 the easiest to install of all the fences."

    Vega Saw Fences are designed to use existing bolt holes (no drilling required) of Delta Unisaws & Contractors Saws, Powermatic Model 66, most Sears 10" saws and most other saws having fence rail mounting holes 8 -9" on either side of the blade. Other saws may require drilling 2 or 4 holes. Little accuracy is needed as the Fence Mounting System allows full adjustment. (Installation may be as little as 15 minutes.) Features which help make this Fence so easy to install include:
    1. Pre-drilled and tapped holes to fit most saws.
    2. Slotted Front Brackets to allow vertical and horizontal adjustments.
    3. Jacking Plates to assist in leveling the Fence Rails
    4. Easy to follow instructions.

      when i was considering a vega fence system, i called and asked them to send me a copy of the installation instructions so i could see what was involved. call them and ask for a copy of the installation instructions so you can "see about buying one for your new saw". i'm sure you'll get what you want.
      there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

        Yea I saw all of that on their site before I came here. But the pre-drilled holes on the set I have do no match. I'll try my best. Maybe the model I bought is older.

        Thanks Bob.

          Thank you, bud...I received an e-mail from Vega this morning that just had a phone number in the reply lol. So that sounds like they probably have a quick answer.

            some new hole drilling will probably be needed. if it comes down to that, i'd drill the fence and leave the TS untouched with new holes. just my $.02.

              Wow, I cant believe that had not crossed my mind. Thank you that makes it all sound easy now. Its used and I got it pretty cheap so not to much to lose if I do screw it up.

              I did talk to the people at Vega and they are sending me the instructions but I talked to a very cool guy there that swears that it should fit. I'll be giving it a shot today. I'll let you guys know if it works for anyone in the future that may be in the same spot I am.
