Table Saw Fence?

I’m hoping you guys can help me design a table saw fence for my Dewalt 745.

The stock fence is cheap extruded aluminum that is attached to cheap injected molded plastic with a couple m5(?) bolts. The plastic on mine broke off in transit. A replacement costs $80 before shipping (almost half what I paid for the saw).

So I’m hoping to use some nice extruded aluminum to build something that is easily removable, and stays square to the table. I currently have a couple pieces of 500mm 20x80 extrusions. How would I create a system that slides back and forth easily, doesn’t interfere with the top of the table, stays square to the blade, locks and unlocks easily?

Here are a couple examples of third party fences. None seem to be compatible and/or cost effective to the saw I own.

Take a look at the Vega Fence. I have the Vega 40 for my Inca 12" saw, it is worth every dollar! Their customer service is great too.

sure you have the 8020 extrusion but in the end if you add up time and material you will probably be way better off buying a pre made fence. 8020 is not cheap and machining a hold down clamp would be time consuming. sorry to shoot this idea down but if you just want a basic fence i would buy one. if you want a tiger stop style fence you would save ~$2000 making it yourself

Here is something I have on my todo list.

He sells the plans also. This is a sharp kid.
