If you are doing a lot of grooving/dovetailing/joint work on your RT than a system like the Incra positioner (example for a parallel fence system) really saves time and effort as the readings on the scales are precise and you do not need to check bit distance before every cut (something that for mid part cuts is not as easy as using a depth gauge as the bit can be 12”+ away from the fence). if on the other hand you are doing mainly (if not just) edge work than the benefit of such a system are almost non existent.
