    Fraction Calculator Plus by DigitAlchemy is handy sometimes.

    Carpenter by iHandy is kinda fun and really handsome, but I almost never use it. Has plumb bob, level, protractor.

    I've machined UHMW lot of ways but don't think I ever planed a piece. It tends to be "stringy-er" than HDPE which I have succesfully planed with a Byrd head and milled flat on conventional blade...

    The fence changed because ownership of Delta changed, if I'm not mistaken. They have their weaknesses but so do all. BTW, they're adjustable. Had the same fence since 1980 and I run about .015 wider...

    I think there's two different ones depending on vintage of fence.
