I thought I would post my router fence for anyone whose looking. I decided to make a new table and fence after I shifted my TS rails to the right about 10”. I wanted a larger rip capacity and I designed the fence to be independent of the TS fence, so I had the option to put the TS fence to the left or right side of the blade.

The router fence attaches to some T track on the TS insert, so it can be removed easily. I also made sure to put some T track for weatherboards, as I’m get tired of getting little “burs” in my routing at the very end of a piece, especially large ones. I went to the Kreg router plate and used their corner leveling mounts, which was nice and easy. I went to the Kreg plate so I could switch throat plated without taking out screws, it’s pretty nice! I included some storage for accessories but I need to drill some holes in a scrap piece of wood for the router bits!!

Thanks for looking!!

Keith,

I like it….One stellar job on the new fence..I prefer wood over MDF anytime, and you did a bng-up job with the new system. I especially like the insert holder you added. Puts them right at your fingertips for easy access.

Thanks Rick-

Tool accessories that are out of reach are like kitchen appliances in a cupboard…you don’t use them!

I forgot to worn anyone who may make a similar one. The fences have t track in the back of them. I made them a little to low and had to switch out my knobs for clearance!! I thought I was going to have to go to wing nuts!

Great job on the fence. I like how you incorporated storage for the items right there.

What is the key fob looking thing in the 2nd picture? is that a remote switch to your router or vacuum?

Looks like a well made fence. My complaint with all my prior fences before going to the Incra LS Positioner was micro adjustments. Have you considered incorporating some such adjuster in that design?

I haven’t. I don’t think I have enough precision for one of those!

Great fence, but your featherboards are backward. Flip ‘em before you use it.

Todd-

Do theicroadjusters help with the height of a bit? Or placement of the fences? I plan on making a stop for repeat procedures.
