Concerning a Unifence on a SawStop saw:
I had a Unifence on a Jet cabinet saw and loved it. When I bought a SawStop and sold the Jet I decided to let the Unifence go with the saw. I miss that fence.
The SawStop unit is top of the line but the fence sides are not flat, nor did I expect them to be as they are, after all, plywood. I recently found the VeryCoolSuperTools fence and am thinking seriously about changing to their fence as the sides will be straight and easy to mount jigs to.
I hope FineWoodworking will test this fence as it looks to be the best combination of both fence types and I'm interested in your perspective.
I also believe it would satisfy the question asked about the Unifence in this podcast.
Hi guys. Loving the show, the right blend of solid info and bad jokes for mine.
Just a quick comment/suggestion. I listen on the bus to and from work and I particularly noticed in this episode that the difference in volume levels between the 3 of you was quite noticeable. There were a couple of times when I could barely hear Mike above the background noise, whereas Matt & Ed were fine. I'm just wondering if you could run the audio file through a compressor or something to even it out a little?
Cheers, looking forward to the next installment.
62vetteefp: It's OK to step away from the Unifence. LOL. Glad you're ok with the choice!
Guys, just listened to the podcast and thanks for answering the uni fence question.
From what I can tell the unifence came in 30", 32" and 52" rip capacity. The Sawstop is 36" and 52" with the nice fence.
And I am already over it. Using the Sawstop fence.
Your most cringe worthy episode yet. The circular saw story was especially horrifying. Luckily, Matt Kenney brought it back with his special brand of humor.

In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.
In this video Michael starts work on the second box, a carved and painted Saddle lid box.
Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
