Very simple design. Nice and light so I can remove it and stow it easily. I wanted it to be easily detachable from the fence so I can use both tools at once. These Magswitches are amazing! The magswitch can be easily removed and used for other stuff like the feather board. Obviously I still have to drop in the router lift. That’s my next project. This little thing took a lot longer than planned due to design issues.

great router fence. I really like how you have used the mag switches. That is a super idea.

You do the same as I, using the saw fence to set up the router fence but I don’t have the mag switches!
I am going to buy some and add the to my router fence!

I don’t entirely understand the mag switches – how do they work? (beside being magnetic, lol) Do they need electricity? Do they have a lot of holding power?? Do well with vibration?? I’m intrigued!

Magswitch makes some really nice products.
I use one of mine to set up a stop when making repetitive stops on my table saw.
The on/off switch makes them easy to use.
