Just wondering if anyone has successfully mounted an Incra Router Fence on the Bench Dog ProMaxRT Cast Iron Table Top?

From what I have read, the brackets that come with the fence will only accomodate router table tops that are up to 1 3/8” thick and the Bench Dog Cast Iron Table is 1 1/2” thick – so some sort of modification is necessary to secure the fence to the table. (FYI – this is the standalone cast iron top – not the extension wing to the TS).

Thanks,
Mordi

Shouldn’t be a problem. If the top was solid, it would just take longer bolts than what are included in the package. I’m guessing that the Bench Dog top is not 1 1/2” thick all over—but likely webbed. So, careful drilling would get you to where the thickness is under 1/2”. Another possibility would be to drill through where you choose, and run about 3” mounting bolts through the mounting bracket, top and a 3/4” plywood backer under the webbing.

Incra writes great manuals, but for the most part they are geared to what’s included in the kit for fasteners. This is one that should be relatively easy to overcome. I’ll measure the centers of the bolt holes on my mount so you can look at the top from the underside for drilling locations.
