I bought a cheap Ryobi 10" table saw a few years ago on Craigslist as I was just getting in to woodworking and it has served me reasonably well considering what it is, however I have a project in mind that will take a higher degree of precision and perfectly flat, parallel cuts and I'm worried my stock rip fence simply isn't that. I'm wondering if there is any way to increase the precision of my fence? I have clamped a long t-square to it in the past and that works for thin pieces I am running on the saw, but a 2x4 is too thick for that to work since the clamps get in the way. I'd rather not invest in a new saw right now but that may eventually be my best option, just figured I would ask here and see if anyone has any suggestions? I could post images of my current fence later if needed. Thanks!
I’m currently building a table top with the saw built in for this purpose. From the factory my saw has about an 18 in rip capacity.
You can make your own fence with T - Track along the front of the table. Outside of making your own fence system, aftermarket fence systems are available but they cost around 300 bucks US.
Here is the video that I got my idea from. His is being used on a home made table saw but the concept is the same.
It's a nice idea but I don't have the room for a table like that, part of the reason why I got the Ryobi saw was it's fairly compact and transportable. I considered an the 1 last update 2020/07/04 aftermarket fence but for the prices I've seen I mayaswell get a new saw.

Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for As far as DIY rip fences are concerned that's a pretty good build but that dude keeps his for 1 last update 2020/07/04 fingers horrifyingly close to the drill bits.

Not sure if your model is the same as mine, but my fence finished just short of the end of the table. This let me screw a small right angle bracket on to the end of the fence that I could then clamp to the end of the table.
Still sucked - you had to measure and lock in one end, go and measure and clamp the other end, rinse and repeat until the stupid thing was square.... but at least once it was in place I knew it wasn't going to flex out of square.
For any cut that you can get away with it, I'd recommend a cross-cut sled that you can make permanently square to the blade.
Yeah I did make a crosscut sled, it helps quite a bit with smaller projects, sadly the project I have in mind will require some longer rips that the sled won't be able to help with. My saw is the Ryobi BTS10, the older blue one like this
Woodworking Planshow to Woodworking Plans for I did find this replacement fence, however it states it is only compatible with the RTS10 model, but it looks almost identical to mine and it looks like the RTS10 was just the next iteration of the same saw.
I will likely do that in the future
