Finally got the fence and was able to model it out last night. I wish I had the opportunity to do this earlier, or at least have this model before I cut the hole in my router table top for the router plate as based on this fence I would have liked to put it 2.5” more to the front. but. 2.5” is not that critical, and I could move the fence backwards if needed.

hope this can help someone else:

this is not a production model, but just a model to help visualize and design a router table as the sizes can help design a top to house this etc.

Peace

I upgrades to the LS positioner when they first came out. They offered a deal to change from the older version.

So I’m thinking of building a router table and use all of my parts to put another one together.

I must say – the videos online don’t do this fence justice. the base is juts MASSIVE. it really does look like it’s designed for fine woodworking. everything is BIG and convenient to use, however, the movements are so fine that it’s remarkable. I felt like this order was a luxury (and it is for me) but after getting introduced to this fence system, I just couldn’t see myself getting anything else. I have been waiting for a long long time for this. the wait was worth it.

Karson – so you still have the older TSIII positioner? so you would only need a cross fence to have a complete system right? that would be a nice addition.

Thanks Dave, If there’s something I don’t like is a heavy model that starts to lag when you’re trying to orbit around your design. so I try to keep things light. I even dropped some details which I felt are unnecessary for the purpose of this model.

nice to see you around.

Thanks Sharon – I’m always happy to add to my design library.

I’ll look at it later tonight.

JSYK, your work keeps working. Using it right now. Thx!

PurpLev: I found some of your models on the SU warehouse recently as I was searching for models to incorporate into a 3D drawing of my shop. You’ve done some great work on the Incra components! I’ve used several of them. The only changes I’ve made is to lengthen the carriage using push-pull since my router setup uses the 25” version. I created a couple of models of the TS components but will wait to upload them to the warehouse so I can double-check against real-world when I receive my TS system soon.

Keep up the good work!

thanks.

If you can- before you upload it back to warehouse, make sure my name is still accredited for on your version of the model. I’ve seen my model used on various versions of router tables on 3Dwarehouse, but all simply took it, exploded it, used it’s geometry and then uploaded their version dropping my name from the credits while at it… not a life changer, but a bit of a shame really.
