I just found out that Jessem will come up with a new router fence in about 8 weeks…
No more details for now…

After 200 hours comparing routers, tables and fences…
Not sure if I will buy the Jessem now or wait… Ah, life!

A long time ago, I did the same thing and ended up building my own. The prices for a router table and fence are just too much for me. I have been using mine for several years now and still would not make a change.

You should consider making one of your own. There are plenty of pictures of great tables that people on this site have built and have provided pictures.

For the money you could save, you could buy a better router, router bits or router lift.

Give it a thought…..

@Redoak
I will built the table and stand.
Will use the incra plate.
For the fence I will swing (pun intended) for the full incra setup.
But as a first step it will be the jessem.
I prefer spending my time doing more interesting projects.
Tx for the advice

Have your say...
