Ryobi band saw fence
 
Somebody gave me an amazon.com gift certificate and one of the items I was hoping to find was a fence for my Ryobi BS903 9" band saw. They don't have it but they do have one for the 9" Powertec BS900RF, which has the same table dimensions, at least in terms of surface.

It should probably work on my Ryobi but I don't know how such a fence actually works and I'm wondering if the depth of the skirt on the sides of the table is a factor. I'm thinking that if that were a problem and the only problem, I could modify my Ryobi by cutting away part of the skirt. Does that sound feasible?

Hi Gun,Welcome to the Forum.
I would not modify your bandsaw when another solution
may be available using a Sears Fence.

Thanks for the suggestions, PaliBob. I was aware of the Sears option but of course my goal is take advantage of my Amazon gift certificate.
It took me awhile to figure out how to edit my profile but I have added my location.
