What's the worst force you've needed to start the fence moving to position it? Would you estimate 2 to 4 pounds? Some table fences move easily and some are a real bear (misaligned, metal to metal, etc). I will be assembling a 3612 (xmas present) soon as it warms up in my garage. Man, what a heavy box. I plan on designing a drive system for the fence and motor height/angle both. The goal is to not double the cost of the table. It shouldn't cost 24 times the cost of a 2424 as mentioned in an earlier thread. I am certain of the motor height/angle drive's relatively low cost. Fence accuracy, however, is another topic. I am a hobbyist, not a store or a company in case you wondered. (currently a programmer, AutoCAD programmer, and an ex-electrical designer with both servo and metrology background -- almost became a machinist at one time, love working with my hands making things)
No announcement yet.
