Hey Gene, there was indeed a misunderstanding.

I’ve heard of, and used the trick of a fence for jointing when a small shift is introduced between the infeed and outfeed faces. I don’t think I’ve ever come across a two-part fence, let alone a homemade one. Most fences have a common table-wide base to which (occasionally movable) faces are perpendicularly attached.

At this stage and with the replies I’ve had, my feeling is that there is very little use for a router table fence that can be adjusted while remaining parallel to the table front edge. I’ll go by jmos’ advice and focus on getting the fastening mechanism right. Real challenge here, let me think for a second … mmmmh how about t-tracks, t-bolts and knobs ? How original is that ?
