    Re: R4511 with Delta T2 Fence

    tomapple, you are right i had the same problem also but, my fix was when i clamped the two angle irons together i moved the hole location a bit higher so that droped the tube down enought that the miter slots did not hit at all.

      Re: R4511 with Delta T2 Fence

      Got my T2 fence today.

      Unpacked the box and everything looks okay.

      As both Mr. D and ayalman noted, two holes on the front rail look like they line up pretty close, but given the weight of the rail and tube I'm going to be drilling a few holes.

      Like ayalaman it would be nice if I can get the holes drilled so that the tape on the tube matches. If not I'll have to take the tape off and put a new one down.

      I like the feel of the new fence already, so am looking forward to getting it installed.

        Great post, thanks. I have this saw and am planning on upgrading to this delta fence.

          Those folks with the T2 fence take a ruler or scale and measure it against the tape! I had a saw with the T2 before I bought the 4512 and the the indicator tape itself was incrementally out of measurement. I couldnt figure out why after I squared up and zeroed everything it was off. Out of habit I would set the fence before a cut and use a tape measure or a flex scale. I found out that the error increased from the 3 inch mark all the way to 32". This wasnt a problem for me because at work I use a flex scale to measure with the table saw there, but when I want to cut something at 5", its on. The T2 was not. When I sold the saw I made sure the new owner was aware of it.

            GarageJunkie,
            My T-2 came with a tape but I had to peel it off, since I was mounting in a different position for the R4511. I had to make a new zero point and installed a Starrett tape measure and it has worked fine.
