OK I thought since we are in the scrappy mode I would try to build a shop project from mostly scraps laying around.
Since I need a router fence for my next project this is the result .
Some off cuts of Baltic birch ply make up the body and the faces are something like corian ( artificial granite )
The track on top of the fence is a piece of flooring and the dust collection pipe a piece of 2” ABS .
The nuts bolts and washers where leftovers from previous projects.
The fence is build to be attached to the TS fence for dadoing and for normal routing the 2 slots in the bottom let me attache it to the extension wing which I fitted with two threaded inserts.
All very straight forward except for the tack that will accommodate the various attachments like stops and feather boards which will also be used on my sled and drill press fence which all have the same track size but this is a bit of a work in progress and I will post a update on this later .
I used a trick to cut the holes for the dust pipe which i got room some where and it works very well .
See the pics of the method I used ,mark the hole with the hole saw and then drill a small hole inside the mark this seems to remove the sawdust and makes the cutting much faster and no burning as the sawdust has some place to exit .
