this not for the weak at heart it has taken a few weeks to get this corect but it not works great. it was the only way i could think of still using my incra system with the new saw. my old saw had the access door on the right so the router table was on the left. no issue the fence was on the corect side all the time the new saw stop the acess door is no the left so no where to mount the router table and dust box. i replaced the 72 inch railes with the 92 inch rails made a adapter for the rear of the positioner and mounted a fence at the rear. before anybody complains i made the router table and dust box out of wood takes a lot of fuss to get att the moving parts aligned but once they are it works great. i will give a review on the sawstop later i have only cut for about a hour or so.
if anyone is interested i have a a craftsman 22114 with a few acceries sleds, bladesmodil base router table new fence for sale now

Lookin Good Eddy; Sometimes you just have to roll up your sleeves and make things work. Nice to see you have a Saw Stop and the Incra jig. And nice to see how far you have progressed since moving to Arizona

Hey that’s a very nice setup and a fine job of making it work for your needs.I’m curious what does the LS stand for?

That is really a clever and unique idea. Great job. Have you sent a photo of this setup to Incra? I bet they would love to see it.

Wow! That is a fancy set up! Don’t think I am smart enough to use it but you now have no excuses for any inaccuracy!

Nice job, not sure why Incra hasn’t thought of this already for us small shop owners limitied on space with the router tables on the right. It is the very thing that has stopped me from buying Incras set up. I love Incra tools and think this would be a good idea for you to submit. Thx for sharing.

LS= lead screw.
Maybe I’m daft but I don’t see how this works? I have two Incra’s(one on the router table and one on the ts)
How do you fine adjust it?

greg incra knows a lot of people have made this set up. when i spoke with neil at incra he agreed all you needed to do is add a spacer to the rear to to clear the screw adjuster and add your fence and mounts howie when you fine adjust you are moving the hole positioner it dont matter what side the fence is on. so fare it works great but i do see whey incra is not making this the factory set up is hard to get dead on and this is crazy to get there
ken if you are interested i can give you more details on this. it is not my design i have seen pictures of it befor thats where i got the idea denis yess this have been better for my out her ein fact all my tools have now paid for them selfs even with the recent upgrades

I have the same saw and TS/LS with router table, and have thought there must be a better way than sliding the whole Incra positioner back and forth on the rails when switching between router and saw. Interesting idea…. I’ll have to give this some more thought. Would you be willing to capture a close up of how you added the right side (router) fence to the end of the TS/LS? Also, do you stand on the opposite side of the table for routing, given the fence is on the opposite side of the bit vs. normal? Thanks for posting…
