Well with My newest Christmas gift (to My self) installed in My router table I thought it was time to get a much needed fence Upgrade to match the performance of the Triton 2 1/4 hp with above table adjustment capabilities !! What a difference having a router with many features that enhance a router tables capabilities. I actually designed/built this RT/out feed table/storage unit a while back and it has served my needs well ,but never got around to putting together a proper fence. I am pleased to say I have finally finished a much improved set up over the original fence that lacked the many features this model offers. I have been checking out here on LJ’s and other sites for features and styles of fences that I wanted to design into mine and I have stolen from many unsuspecting members and I do apologize for not naming names ! OK with that off my chest, I can spell out some of the details. The fence is long and tall at 38” L x 9” T and is constructed out of 1/2” MDF and the base is 3/4” birch ply. Mating the two together is an 1/4” thick 3×3 section of Aluminum angle,the aluminum took some time laying out and fabricating but well worth the effort IMO,keeps things at 90*. The faces of the fence are laminated with left over Formica from RT surface and I installed a T-track section for various attachments, mostly feather boards and stop blocks . I also installed a eye shield plate I had laying around and it can be adjusted and or swiveled out of the way when doing taller operations . I haven’t put it through the wringer yet but have used it several times and can say with out hesitation,that it has lived up to my expectations thus far. Well that covers the basics and the Pics probably fill in the blanks but feel free to ask ?’s or leave comments,always welcomed . Hope all is well and wishing everyone a Happy New Year !!.........ROB
