I have a Triton workcentre so, although I could have the fence either side, the distance calibrations work best with the fence on the left of the blade. I rather like this since it means that I can push with my right hand while standing to the outside of the fence (out of the path of a possible kickback) and also not be working over the blade as I do on a table that has the fence on the right.

John makes a good point about considering the tilt of the blade, but I cannot tilt my blade on the Triton workcentre so it is not a concern for me.
