@Pollys13 Would some Aluminium Extrusion Profile not do the job?
Thanks but different thing. Saw has a sliding table on left and the fence is on a pivot for making angled cuts on stuff, like gunstock ( dimished stile ) door stiles.
Might but question of finding something pretty much like the original, as I say has a sliding extension piece inside.
Thanks everyone, as I say I don't need it to be as long as it was, so will make do as it is. If Axminster come back with a price of, doubtful, 50 quid. Then will go for it, otherwise keep.
I've put a little reminder ..... on...... the remainder, don't saw through fence!!!
If there is an extension piece inside I think welding will be a no. (My welding anyway!)
If there are 3 sides that don't need to be flat afterwards drop it off in Frome if you are passing!
on the bright side ,,, it is a nice clean and square cut.
I was about to say the same!
Yes I realized that, the extension inside would give me an extra 2/3 feet, if I did happen to need that. You can see a section of the extension, above the main fence. The sliding table on the saw, new, are talking around 550. I was lucky to find a used one for 250. Axminster, greedy, greedy, would probably be inclined to shaft me for around 200. Then would have to wait, perhaps several months, while it comes in their next container order, from China.
Yes, as I say is an extension inside. The front face and base would ne to be perf.ectly flat
if you can’t replace it with a bit of generic 40x40 extrusion then I still say buy new.
You’ll never weld that straight and even after milling it won’t be as good as new.
The best you could do it put some extended tnuts with grub screws in the top and side slots to hold the two pieces together. Like these:
As long as you match the slot width what’s stopping you replacing the entire thing?:
This is a nightmare job to repair by welding, as several others have mentioned, fit inserts and wraps, either glue() or bolt() no distortion, no hassles
Looks like 4040 extrusion to me. £16 for a metre length on eBay and this one also does custom lengths - https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/3035225675...faultOrganic&brand=Unbranded&var=602737182243
And that is just the first seller I found via google. Even if it’s not exactly the same as the original, with a bit of effort you can make it work. It’s only a fence!
Thanks for the advice.
I'll post some clearer photos of extrusion profile etc a bit later.
Here are several photos of fence so can more easily see profile and how fence fits together, fence has an end stop on it, photo D.
