Hey guys and Gals,
First off, I just want to say thanks to many of you for the good information you guys post. This place is great. Ive recently found an interest in woodworking, and man has this placed helped me learn about all sorts of things; from tools, to jigs, to techniques, to even glues and sealers.
So, on to me plight. I have acquired some tools. Some decent and some… not so decent. One thing I really love is my table saw. I got a great deal on a shop fox w1677. I traded a boat motor that I bought for $100 two years ago and probably spent another $150 fixing. The saw was in decent shape. I got the table nice and clean and waxed back into great condition. It has a Biesemeyer type fence on it with some sort of plastic face on one side only. I am in the process of making a router table extension that will use the same fence as my table saw, and was just curious what kind of material I should use for the fence on the router side? My table is MDF. Would that work for the fence too? I want it a little taller than my fence now, but that could be a pain with some over fence jigs for my table saw. Im not sure. Ive only been at this for about 2 months and I find many many different things people have done, but none really like I am wanting to do. I like cheap, but I want durability and accuracy as well. Those are worth paying and extra dime for.
Thanks in Advance!
