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.

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.

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.

thanks
