Drilling Holes in Rip Fence

Table saw fences don’t come with holes already there, the way miter guides do. Is it OK to drill holes in a rip fence to attach an auxiliary or sacrificial fence?

Carol Reed: Certainly; just be certain of what’s inside your fence first. Some fences have a locking mechanism inside.

Cal Brodie: And be careful to keep all screws out of the potential saw cut area.
