Last month Jerome Pfeifer purchased a VerySuperCool Tools Universal T-Square Table Saw Fence system for his two table saws. In his shop he has two different styles of table saws; a Unisaw and a contractor’s saw, but he wasn’t happy with either fence system. The fences were not interchangeable, and both guide rail systems were old and inaccurate.
Jerome knew he wanted to upgrade, but he hadn’t decide the best way to do it, until he saw our product.
I immediately saw the enormous potential with the VerySuperCool detachable t-square table saw fence system and realized it could do double duty and I could use the same fence on both of my table saws. ~ Jerome Pfeifer
Once Jerome had the T-Square and Aluminum Extrusion fence in his possession, he began to address his subpar guide rail situation. Jerome didn’t have a Biesemeyer Fence to copy or refer to, but after we had a few conversations and shared some photos via email he had a clear picture of what he needed to do. In no time he knocked out a new guide rail system for both his Unisaw and his contractor’s saw using standard steel available from any steel supply source.
Lucky for us, Jerome decided to film the entire process since he just became AskTheSteelGuy on YouTube. This first video series about fabricating the guide rails for his two table saws is now available on his new YouTube channel. All 5 videos are also posted below.
Jerome Pfeifer is a master welder and metal worker from Colorado. He has been welding since he was 13 years old. Years ago he was the foreman of a fabrication company that specialized in internal repairs on railroad cars for Coors Brewing Company. In addition he also taught welding classes at night for company employees in order to help others improve their skills. Today Jerome is a busy business man with many irons in the fire. He is still learning, still creating and still sharing his knowledge, and now, thanks to the internet, we can all benefit from his decades of experience.
AskTheSteelGuy knows just about everything there is to know about every type of welding and machining. He’s fabricated structural steel greenhouses, food grade stainless vessels, wrought iron furniture and everything in-between.
VerySuperCool Tools is very happy that Ask The Steel Guy generously documented his process and shared his knowledge for this very interesting table saw fence guide rail process. Now everyone who is interested in upgrading their table saw can see that this is an accessible, rewarding and affordable project. I believe it cost him less than $100 to fabricate two guide rails.
Thank you Jerome! We’re so glad that you are enjoying your new VerySuperCool T-square and aluminum extrusion fence. And thanks again for the great shout to VerySuperCool Tools on your video series. We really appreciate it.
