tempermental design, support response slow to noneJun 21, 2008
The fence flexes when pushed against with even moderate pressure. Adjusting the fence is time consuming and very difficult, and is full of hit-or-miss trial and error. The initial shipment of my fence did not include any of the hardware to put it together. Everything but the rails replaced by Accusquare eventually to iron out flaws, but during that process email response was extremely slow, replacement parts took weeks. No calls returned in a timely manner either to voicemail messages left or having left my name and number with whoever answered the phone that day. I had questions about adjusting the fence, and got no call back. First fence extrusion was not straight, .007" of measured deviation. Recieved new fence after weeks of waiting and then having to call or email to ask when it is coming. Instructions say tighten fence mounting bolts "red-face tight" and doing so stripped one of the bolts out. Even with bolts tight, deflection is a concern. Adjustment to square fence 90 deg. to the table top is wrong-headed and can result in your rail being up to 1/4" higher on one side than the other - you adjust square by moving one or the other side of the rail up or down. I finally got the fence dialed in and repeatable, but the customer service is so slow and non-communicative, that I simply can't recommend Accusquare equipment. Even though they replaced a lot of parts free of charge, the process was too painful and slow to recommend buying their products. Their router table wing also sagged under the weight of my PC7518 router, even though it is advertised to hold all large 3-1/4 hp routers without sagging. The new design of that same table has aluminum underpinnings. Who knew. Accusquare stated they would ship a new router table, took my address, but months later waited and it never came. Decent prices for what the equipment is supposed to do, but better equipment exists elsewhere. Promising design, but can have a lot of build flaws. Lifetime warranty appears valid up to the point Accusquare gives up on you.

Great aftermarket fenceApr 29, 2006
By R. Appleman
The M1040 rip fence is a really nice, well constructed piece of equipment. Installation on my older Craftsman table saw went fairly smooth (problems were operator error), and after a few tweaks, seems to be right on the money. The instructions are good, although there are spots where they could be clearer (isn't that always the problem). All in all, I would buy this fence again. Hope my feelings are the same a few years from now, but don't think they will change.

Accusquare M1040 table saw rip fenceFeb 28, 2010
By R. Carlson
The fence arrived a bit later than I had anticipated, in two boxes, but no damage and all of the parts seemed to be there. I quickly removed my old rip fence from my saw (Grizzly 0478) and started in on the installation. I pride myself in following obtuse instructions, but these instructions even had me perplexed. After about two hours of fiddling with the fence and numerous extraneous rail holes, I finally got the fence attached to my saw. I wanted a fence that would always be parallel to the blade and I was not dissappointed. The fence runs smoothly along both rails, is true, and is constantly parallel. The fence also has 'T' tracks on all three sides, although at this time, I have not had the chance to use them. Had it not been for the cryptic instructions, I would have given this fence 5 stars. The price was right and it did exactly what I wanted it to do. I definately would recommend this fence as a top notch replacement rip fence for anyone with a table saw.
