One of the things I have learned in woodworking is that a good fence on a table saw is everything. I spent many, many years with 2 previous table saws both of which had terrible fences before I finally invested in a table saw with a good fence. When I went looking for a table saw that was the FIRST thing I looked at was the quality of the fence and how easy it was to set and how well it kept it's setting on the saw. For me - there is nothing in woodworking that is more frustrating than having a table saw fence that needs to re-set on the front and back and often re-re-set for every cut.

What having poor fences taught me a couple of tricks for setting them up more quickly and accurately than using a tape measure every time and these 2 quick and easy jigs are what I used many years ago, and maybe will help others with their table saw fences that have lost their accuracy.
