That’s a great tip, Scott. This also works for the Incra TSLS fence, quite easily in fact because those rails slide on T-track bolts. I’ve given myself an extra 4 or 5” this way on my stock 32” fence. I could give myself a lot more, but I have a right-tilter. Every now and then I have to cut from the left side…but when I do that I typically do not need all that much capacity.

I’ve often wondered why left-tilters don’t just start the rails close to the blade? Do that with a small capacity fence and you’ll have close to a full plywood width ripping for less cost. I guess you do need to keep some space between bolts so the rails don’t flex too much, but that’s the only thing I can think of. But I would add a cabinet and/or support legs to the right side if I moved the rails too much.
