    Can the forum people please do me a favor?

    I bought a 12" (yes, twelve inch) Jet bandsaw a few weeks back for $150, used, one owner.
    I am looking for a rip fence to fit it.
    The part number is Jet JSL-12RF.

    I have looked online to no avail, because it has been discontinued from way back.
    If you run across one or know of someone who might have one for sale, please let me know.
    I'd like to get this accessory so I can rip down boards.

    Thanks for any help you might provide.

    I'll keep an eye out - but in the mean time, a little t-track and some ply could get you a perfectly serviceable fence to use fairly quick. I'll snap some pics of the shabby thing I slapped together when I get home tonight.

    Thanks Jason. I found out a Grizzly GX0555 has the exact same size table as my saw does.
    If I can't find a used or NOS Jet rip fence, I might just order one from Grizzly & adapt it to fit.

    You can see I notched the back so it can wrap around th column and i lose as little throat depth as possible - though I rarely ever need all of it.

    Nice fence, Jason. You can still adjust for blade drift? I never get that part right...

    I think, therefore I'm more confused than when I began.

    I don't have blade drift - and never need to adjust for that. You can eliminate almos tall drift from most any good blade by adjusting the tracking. I don't worry where it sits on the wheel as long as it's fully on it and doesn't drift. "Compensating for drift" is one of my pet peeves - you don't have to live with drift!

    Thanks for posting that Jason. It gives me something to go by when I build mine.
    But, maybe I'll get lucky & find one that fits my bandsaw.
    Who knows?
