Drilling Holes in Rip Fence

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.
