  • Biesemeyer Fence R4511

    Yesterday I finished installing my Biesemeyer fence and rails to the R4511. I originally had the one piece front and rear rails, which while a significant improvement to the stock rails, still left much to be desired. I finally decided on upgrading to the Biesemeyer over the Grizzly fence as I got a great deal on the Biesemeyer fence at just over $200 for the whole thing.

    Installing it was not as bad as I had thought. I took the stock front angle iron and clamped it to the new Biesemeyer angle iron ensuring it was evenly spaced. I drill (4) new holes in with a metal drill bit. It only took a couple minutes to drill each hole, and I had the front rail installed within 30 minutes.

    Since I have to operate out of my garage, space is at a premium. I ordered the 30" rails, and as others have done before, I shifted to front tube to the right 10". This lines up with the existing holes in the angle iron and gives me a total of 40" rip capacity to the right and about 3 -4" to the left.

    Finally, I installed the rear angle iron in a similar fashion. Lining up the stock rail with the Biesemeyer rail and drilling (4) holes. With this particular fence, the rear rail provides no support for the fence, but I installed it for a future outfeed table and for the router cabinet I'm looking to incorporate with the saw.

    Overall, very pleased with the fence, definitely worth the time and money for the upgrade.

        I put my Delta T-2 on mine, and haven't regretted it one iota. Truth is, had I never used the Delta, I'd probably been happy with the Ridgid, but I was used to the Delta and glad to have it back.

          I found both the rails and the fence separately actually. The rails I got from Grainger, they may still have some left, for $109. The fence I kinda found by accident on Amazon. It had been priced at $219 for several months, then one day I checked, and they dropped the price to $111 so I bought it immediately. Later in the day it was back to the original price.

              Installed my Bies last year. Makes the 4511 a very good saw.

                I have had this happen with Amazon also. I was looking for a pin nailer and had price watch on through camelcamelcamel.com. The price dropped significantly one day and I bought it. The next day, or so, the price jumped back up. In fact, even higher than the original price.
                Regardless, you got a great value.

                  Decent fence with the exception of using clamps on the fence, the combo t-square is a beast.
