Benchtop Best Fence Review
I set up my newly purchased Best Fence yesterday. The Best Fence is sitting on top of a 10’ run of base cabinets and provides support for my Nobex miter saw. That’s right – a hand miter saw. The setup can be adjusted any way you like – up, down, in and out. The tracks are easy to take up and put back in. It is easy to zero the tape ruler to the blade. I think the Best Fence system cost me about three times what I paid for the miter saw but this is a high quality system and I don’t think anyone will have buyer’s remorse. During the setup I became annoyed that there was only one tape ruler and I called back to order another one for the other side. Then I realized I could just flip the tape over and there it was – what I needed for the other track. I have to repeat to myself, “never underestimate the tool manufacturer”. Humbling. I do, however, have one suggestion. I think it would be better if Fastcap made a video dedicated to guiding a new user through the setup process. I didn’t really use the printed instructions. Watching a couple videos that showed small parts of the setup process actually made a difference to me and I was able to figure out the rest. Finally, I purchased the flat track instead of the standard track mainly because Fastcap is out of the standard. I am very happy with the flat track with the back stops. Seems to me that this is actually better and more versatile than the standard track.
Miter saw improvements
I love this system. I think there is still room for continuous improvement. This system needs to help out those who constantly make 45 degree miter cuts and need a great way to measure there material. Look at the Clearmount Miter saw fence and design a similar measuring system for the 45 degree miter cuts. Those are the hardest to measure and cut.
Response: Good idea!
