Thanks for the tip. I've got a big bag of springs and one of them will probably fit. I guess that I have had good luck with my fence as it has stayed in place OK. But I can see where they would cheapen that up a bit since, according to the magazines, the add-on fences that cost as much as the saw are the only way to go. Sorry, but the old New Yankee Workshops show Norm doing everything, including cheek cuts, with the same kind of fence that comes with the Delta.
I did get a Porter Cable 1/2" drill for Christmas and love that. My daughter that got it for me said that she would spring for it if I would leave it to me in my will. E-Mail me at Hflem29.aol.com and I will let you know how to get Porter Cable tools at a great price.
