Default Guide rails for fence

I am looking for the longer guide rails for my original fence. My rails are
36", but that doesn't allow full use of the cast iron wings. I am looking for
42" or longer. does anyone know where I can find rails. Grizzly no longer
stocks.

Well the brand fence you are using might help. Otherwise, Jet used to
offer fences and rails as an add on to most any brand saw. IIRC
Beismeyer also sells fences and rails.

Are the existing rails tubular or rectangular? If tubular, good luck in
finding any, I couldn't a few years ago. Eventually, I made a new fence
using a rectangular rail; however, before that I extended the tubular ones
with wood....

1. turn wood to outside tube diameter

2. turn 6" or so of #1 to tube inside diameter

3. cut a flat on the inside diameter; I faced my flats with pieces of 1/8"
steel

4 drill and tap a hole in the metal tube 3" or so from end

5. insert into existing metal tubes

6. secure wooden extensions with a thumb screw.

It might be a lot better to just get another fence, assuming you could afford it.
