This is my version of a jointer fence for my router table. It’s constructed of 3/4” MDF left over from another project, and faced with plastic laminate from a broken piece that I bought for $5.00. The outfeed side is simply a double-thickness of laminate bevelled on the bit side. For simplicity, I attach it to the router table with F-clamps. Simple but effective.

Very nice. I like this project. It sure beats a movable outfeed fence that you need to precisely adjust or a fixed fence that you have to shim. You have the best of both with this fence.

Nice work.

Very nice, did you get a measurement from the front edge so you can set it with accurate repeatability?

No, I just lay a straightedge across the outfeed side & align this with the edge of the straight bit. <chuckle> Since these glasses are bifocals, it’s easier that way!

Great Idea. I am going to build one of these for my oscillating spindle sander… As soon as I get one…

Nice design – simple and very effective- how high is the fence?

The fence is 4 3/4”. That allowed for an inside length of 4” vertical and horizontal—made the braces easier to cut.
