Quite pleased with this "bodge" , a fence for a wee table saw

Recommended Posts

Blagged this brand new old stock Electra Beckum down at Dennis Wilson's about a year ago, "found" in a dark corner, no LEV or fence, & "sold as seen"

I idly bid him £100.00 for "openers" and behold the saw was mine.

So, see images

Could have stood a heavier aluminium angle section for stiffness, but  arbitarily set a random width, tightened the wingnut, run a bit of rafter through, shaving just a few mm off between the blade and the fence, then re-set the fence to shave a few mm off the other edge, , both fed flawlessly, and when I measured the piece it was "perfect", so quite pleased with my mornings efforts.
