Router Table Fence Adjuster

This is a fence adjustment jig I made for my router table. It is similar to the original INCRA jig, but this one slides on two rails instead of a set of notches, which technically makes it infinitely adjustable. The wood rails are glued to the bottom board but not the top. Since these pictures were taken I have attached a ruler and a gauge to the side so that I can make more accurate of adjustments. I made it because I find adjusting a router fence extremely annoying and difficult, especially if the fence must be parallel to the miter track. Building the jig myself saved a lot of money compared to the store model and still works quite well. The jig is made of maple and jig parts from r*ckler and the fence and tabletop are from there also. I made an additional jig to allow for dusk collection from the top. Thanks

Great looking jig, though I would get my Chop saw blade sharpened If I were you. The ends of those boards are mega-burned! I like how you made wooden “ways”. A cool feature you could add would be a micro-adjust knob. There’s a million ways to get that done, but you look like you have the talent to make that happen.
Thanks for sharing

Oooh nice! Might have to try something like that. +1 on the micro adjust, and some sort of stops for repeatability?

I’ve been looking at the Incra jig, but I build most of my own also. This is the one I’ll go with!! Thanks for the post. A stop and micro-adjuster is a must on such a fine piece.
Great work!!!
