here is the router table fence i built recently. i was using a 2×4 clamped to the top but that left a lot to be desired especially in the dust control area. i made the fence out of mdf with a maple face. i added some t track to the maple with bolts that go through to some home made knobs so i can adjust the width of the opening.
the fence is a pivot style where one side is stationary and the other pivots. what i did is installed some threaded inserts into the table and use some bolts with home made knobs (gotta love them!) to adjust the fence i just loosen the knobs and slide one side however far i need. if i need more space i just move the fence to the next set of holes. it works really well. for the dust collection i decided to go with a full 4” pipe istead of necking down to 2 1/2 like most router tables do and im glad i did, it really sucks up the dust!
anyways hope you guys like it
