There's a piece of fence I need to replace. Just need to weld a bracket to attach it to the wall, and a stop for the fence door. Would probably cost $50 and 5 minutes to have someone do the labor....

Poor wording maybe? I think it is just supposed to be a list of popular saws compatible with the base.

Your solution would be more ergonomic if I cut the handle and welded it back on at an angle. Having the wood push toward you just makes so much more sense.

That's another idea. I sometimes just grab the track and lower it down instead of using the handle, so i can hold the wood in position while lowering the bridge.

I see what you mean. in my situation, the arms from the other side hit the table. I suppose I can raise the bridge some more, but even so, it's an awkward range of motion. I'll give it a try since I...

Dave, if the material pushed toward me, that would help a lot. no need for a moving fence -- could just mount it to my SME just like the bridge.
