I sure wish someone could come out with a magnifying lense for this fence, I am getting old and the eye sight is not quite so sharp. I have to put on the mag hood to see them darn lines. I called Incra once and they did not seem one bit interested.

I don’t use this fence but can understand your concern. How current is your eye exam ? perhaps its time for bifocals. I wear trifocals my self and you may be missing more in life that just the numbers.

New eyeballs and I still have to use a mag in order to see those stamped lines.

LOL Jim. Wait till you get really old (like me) and you can’t even see the fence. ;)

I just ordered a clamp-on magnifier lamp with a built-in circular 22W fluorescent bulb … for … exactly the sort of thing you’re talking about.

May work for you, too … ??
