    Default Sawstop T-glide fence

    I'm hoping someone with a tglide fence and rail kit installed is able to help. I've recently obtained one to retrofit on to a generic tablesaw and, as expected, the holes don't suit.

    I assume the front and rear angles are offset (up or down) from the top surface of the top.

    To assist in setting it all out so I can drill into the front and rear faces of the cast iron top correctly - is someone able to measure what offset there is between the top of the rails (front and rear) and the cast top? Or confirm flush?

    I can upload a sketch tomorrow morning if this is confusing.

    Thank you!

    Edit: Sketch attached. I think I read somewhere that the front rail is flush with the bottom edge of the front bevel/chamfer. I would guess that the rear rail is probably flush with the top of the table.

    If no one has the specs;
    I made my own rails when I upgraded to a biesemeyer type fence. I drilled the rails.
    It's a bit tricky, but I put the fence in place, with a spacer to just lift off the table top, then, with a bit of help and clamps put the angle etc in place then marked the holes from behind to get the location.
    I also checked this by drawing lines down each side of the T/S holes, and across the top and bottom.
    Then check measured against my marks.

    Good luck.

    The offset at the front and back is the same at just under 2 mm.
