Made a new fence for my router table… wanted to use the Biesemeyer as the basis for my router fence and this is what I came up with. Finally catching up from the table saw upgrade… basically a shop remodel.
The base of the fence is made from 3/4 MDF, glued and screwed. The fence faces are 5/8” melamine. The T-Track is a piece of scrap maple. The fence faces mount using threaded inserts in the base. The whole thing attaches to the Biesmeyer with shop made fence clamps you can see in pics 3-5. Made from cutting a u-bolt in half and a few scraps of ply and some nut n stuff. They are different cause I was making them at 5:30am and couldn’t run any saws (basement shop). The 3rd and last pics shows my bit caddy… fits nicely in the fence tool tray.
Between the built in dust collection on the Triton router and the DC in the fence this thing is 99.9% dust free, rabbets, groove and edge profiling give me a tiny little spit of dust right at the beginning of the cut and then no dust… pretty happy about that.
The only thing I would change is not having some place to clamp it to the table independent of the Biesemeyer, might have to see if I can come up with something. That and it’s heavy… really heavy.
Well… enjoy… Thanks for looking.
