Carter Products - Magfence
The Magfence is a magnetic bandsaw fence that can be anchored to the table at any angle, without clamps.
When using the bandsaw fence to make a rip or resaw cut, it’s not uncommon to experience blade drift-the tendency of the blade to move away from or toward the fence. The solution is to position the fence at a slight angle to account for the drift.
Unfortunately, the fence that comes with most bandsaws can’t be set at an angle. The Magfence, an aftermarket fence from Carter Products, makes things easier. Without clamps, it anchors to the table at any angle. All the holding force comes from several rare-earth magnets built into the anodized aluminum fence. To secure the fence, you need only flip a cam lever; that action lowers the fence (and magnets) to the table. A 16-in. fence sells for $80; a 19½ -in. fence is $90.
