ID This Rip Fence?
#10
Question 
Just this weekend I picked up a drill press with a custom table at an estate sale.  After getting the set home I found that an errant fence, I assume for a table saw, had hitched a ride as well.  Since the sale's over (and the table saw long gone), I cannot return the fence.  So, if y'all can help identify this fence, I'd like to put it down in S&S for shipping cost to anyone who could use it.

   

   

   

   

   

   

There are no logos or other identifying marks, beyond that one sticker about removing when crosscutting and the hardware itself.

You may well be right--there was a small band saw in that basement, as well!

Definitely not a table saw fence. That cutout in the center makes me think router table fence.

Yep, I agree router table jointer fence. Would function similar to this one:

That cutout sure looked like router table (or drill press) fence to me--but the sticker that says to remove before cross cutting made that dubious in my mind. If, on the other hand, the table saw fence was slotted, it COULD be a low rip fence attachment for a standard rip fence--kind of an add-on version for a high-low fence. Just spit-ballin' though.

That's from a Hirsh brand table saw conversion kit, which used a circular saw attached to the bottom of the table for a worksite table saw. I believe it also allowed for similar conversion to a router table, for which you reverse the fence and use the circular cutout.

Great call, that's a match!  Based on your ID, a search brings up plenty of matches.  Here's one:

Sorry to anyone who might now want to grab this fence, but last week I gave up and donated it to our local ReStore.

Thanks so much to everyone who has helped figure this out.  I appreciate it!
