I’ve become somewhat frustrated with my Jet Xacta fence. The UHMW face seems to never be really flat, has a few little nicks and scrapes, and is very sensitive to having the mounting screws adjusted. Getting the fence parallel to the blade depends too much on where along the fence it is measured.
I’m giving a lot of consideration to swapping out the UHMW for 1/2″ melamine or a Formica covered piece of MDF or plywood. Has anyone experimented with this? I’m positive many of you must have refaced TS fences. May I borrow from your experience?
Thanks in advance.
