To Gene :

Are you saying that fences not made of metal are going to give ? Or is it because the precision attainable by a DIY-er is not sufficient to guarantee the fence will keep the same angle when adjusted ? Or both ?
There are fairly affordable systems out there like the Kreg table saw fence which can be adapted for a router table. If commercial products are significantly better than anything homemade, I’ll have to reconsider my options because the minimum spending will be 100£.

To Bill :

There is probably a misunderstanding here. I’m not talking about the fence “faces” sliding to reveal more or less of the bit but the whole fence sliding along a rail while keeping its angle to the table’s edges. I have built sliding “faces” on my fence but with a through-channel rather than a T-slot.
