Editor's Review: Tool Test: Bandsaw Fences

by Asa Christiana

review date: October 25, 2012

The Kreg fence system is an excellent value. It goes on any saw easily, even saws bigger than 14-in. It adjusts nicely in every direction, moves well, locks securely at the same angle every time, and has a very accurate and readable rule system. Its extruded aluminum fence is a clever right-angle design, strong yet thin, so it doesn’t steal as much throat capacity as some others. It has two T-slots for solid attachment of a tall fence, and a low-profile position. It can also be slid backward for rough ripping.

A solid addition to any band saw. Well build and accurate, it doesn't slide as easily as I would like but it was easy to install, it bolts right on. It works well and the additional re-saw fence allows the user to easily move the piece of wood to adjust for drift and stay on your line and cut a super thin board.

I opened the box and within 30 minutes or so I was resawing accurate 1/4" slips off 4" thick white oak on my trusty old Rockwell 14" bandsaw. The instructions are clear and simple, the mounting holes for the rail line up, and there are included screws for both Rockwell (English) and other saws (metric). The fence is very thoughtfully designed. You can easily adjust it in two dimensions (vertical alignment with the blade and blade drift); once you do that, you're done. Build quality is excellent. And IMHO the price is more than reasonable for what you get. It's a pleasure to find a product that's so well designed and made, easy to use, and that does effectively exactly what it's supposed to do.
