I just installed my new fence. The parts are up there with the best machining I’ve seen in any woodworking tool I own (and I own Festool tools!). It makes my old fence look like it was hacked out of steel with a hacksaw. You can tell most parts were cut on a CNC.
The instructions were very clear and the installation went great! It’s very easy to do. I did have to cut the flapper a little shorter so it cleared my Wixey digital scale (but that was easy with my porta-band – as seen in Allan’s videos! That’s the reason I bought it!). The t-square works great with the Wixey. The cam ears are long enough so the magnet in the Wixey engages without the need for the additional metal bracket which makes it more accurate. The digital scale is so accurate any little movement in the fence causes it to change the measurement. I had that problem on my old fence. I could move the fence to the measurement I wanted, but once I locked it down it’d move slightly. I had to figure the play of the fence in my measurement and then lock the fence down hoping it’d land on the correct one. With the VSCT’s fence I don’t have that problem. As long as I keep the glide bearings on the tubing, and the nylon set screws on the tubing, I can slide the fence to my measurement, lock it down and scale doesn’t change at all! I’m looking forward to using it this weekend! I did have an issue with the extrusion. It was slightly bent over the last 10-12 inches. It’ll still work great – much better than my old fence.
I emailed VSC Tools and Allan replied within 25 minutes. And he’s shipping a new one out with a return label. Excellent customer service! They really care about the product they’re putting out. He even includes his personal cell phone number. No one does that! Keep up the great work and products!” – Geoff
