MAGFENCE II, from Carter Products, is the simpler and faster way to attach a fence to most popular band saws, table saws, or any other device with a ferrous-metal table, according to the company. As the name suggests, magnets – controlled by rotational switches on each end of the fence – hold it firmly in place.
It has four magnet mounting positions, making it compatible with even the smallest tables. Carter notes the Magswitch magnets also work with all 30mm Magswitch jigs, allowing use with pre-made and home-made accessories like feather boards. The Magfence II sells for $99.95 at www.carterproducts.com. Tel: 888-622-7837.
