Topic tags/keywords: router top fence ts resource question tip router

Hi,
I might have scored a deal for a veritas router plate and veritas router fence and all the accessories that come with it for a awesome price.
I will be installing the table top on my TS extension wing. I do not have room for a dedicated router table
I want to know before I spend $120 for the entire system if I can use the fence while the plate is setup on the TS extension wing.
Does anyone use it in this configuration.

Do you think it’s a good deal? The table top, the fence and all are in mint condition.

30 minutes down the road, just waiting for confirmation from you guys if I can use the fence while installed on the TS.

I read you cannot lock the fence once installed in TS wing extension but would be surprised LV did not think about that.
Thank you

You’d want the fence with t-track adapters. Then you just rout a t slot or dado for t-track in the table top.

You cant go wrong with that gear for that price. The only downside to the steel is you ant use tracks, you need to use magnets. Performance wise you wont fine a better table. If I were wing mounting it, assuming the TS was big enough, Id treat the table as a large insert plate, and rout it into a slightly lager frame at the appropriate depth. I didnt get the fence, but obviously love the table and love the other veritas gear. Id grab that if I were you.

I got the fence and the table top, 6 different inserts and a hold down for the router table top. Good deal I presume for the price I paid. Seems like top quality again from Veritas. I will install it in my TS extension wing as soon as I have some free time. The stuff is in very good condition.

Helluva deal. I had one of the tops for awhile. I really liked
it. It was reliably accurate due to the tensioning of the
steel. The zero clearance inserts are a nice feature.

I wouldn’t say no to the fence though I never invested as
pricey extruded router table fences seem extravagant
to me for what I tend to use a router table for.

Looks like you got a (you suck) sweet deal there! Should be (you suck) really great to use. Wish I could find a (you suck) deal like that. Also, have I told you “You Suck!” yet?

Have your say...
