    I have a Unisaw with the old but still functioal Jet Lock fence. I am looking to buy the longer rails below or an old set of standard rails that I can weld together for an extension to accommodate a Bench Dog Router table I acquired.

    FYI, I went to McMaster Carr to purchase 1 3/8" d Chrome Tube but a 3' piece would be $50+ with shipping.

    Any help in locating the rails is appreciated.

    I have a pair of the long rails that I can give you.

    Thanks to Steve's generosity, I can now cut to the center of a 4 x 8 sheet. However, my plan to mount my new Bench Dog Lift table(purchased in 2010 but never opened) between the rails was thwarted by the fact that my Unisaw table is 28" deep but the new cast iron table is 32" deep.

    Fortunately the Estate sale purchase included an unassembled Rockler router table. I just finished a new planer sled, now I'll have to track down the hardware to assemble my router table, but that will have to wait till I get some real woodworking done.

    Just thought I'd complete the thread with a picture of my shop and the new (old) Bench Dog / Rockler router table. I installed a Triton router in the table. I am still using my Bosch router table with my 1/4" bits and old Craftsman router (in the back). All I can say is the cast iron router table is so much quieter and has significantly less vibration than the aluminum Bosch table. Now I just need to start acquiring 1/2" router bits....
