Finely got the fence done. It is made out of plywood with MDF face that can be easily replaced when it wears out. The next one might be oak.
As you can see in photo 1, I am using clamps the secure the fence to the table. I am thinking of either putting slots with T-track in the table or slots in the fence for adjustments, haven’t made up my mind on that yet. But the clamps are simple and they work. Any ideas?
Photos 2 and 3 show the face, the two bottom parts of the face can slid apart and the insert with the cut out can be replaced. This seems to work really well.
Photo 4 is looking down, you can see through the plastic and see the vacuum hole in the top for dust collection. Also there are two open boxes for tools or other assesories, these can also be seen in photo 5. Some may ask why I built the back of the fence like I did. It was to add strength to the fence as the bottom is almost cut all the way through and the front if cut about half way through, and this helps link the right and left sides together. Also if you look close you can see a T-nut in the front of the box that a bolt goes into from the front of the face for adjustments of the lower part of the face.
Thanks for looking and any comments.
