Topic tags/keywords: resource router fence table saw router

I’m thinking about making a new router fence that attaches to by TS fence, as when I made mine before I was newer than I am now.

I would like to add some features like putting T track in one side of the router portion wing for easy removal of the fences as sliding mine in the TS fence is a pain and as a result, I leave it on and never put my TS fence to the left side of my blade. I would also like to add T track on the other side for use with feather boards or what not.

Most importantly, I would like the fence/s to move inward and outward. I’ve noticed sometimes, especially when removing a lot of material, the work piece will fall “into” the outward fence, causing a “wow” in the work. I would love to be able to rout a piece 5-6” and than move the fence forward to butt up against the piece.

Any ideas are welcomed!!

Thanks in advance!!

I use a benchdog router fence that has two sliding sacrificial fences attached to the main aluminum fence with t bolts x2 for each fence. The fence slides in and oit toward the bit on slots in the cast iron router wing on my unisaw. This makes precision adjustments difficult so I use my biesemeyer fence behind it to make adjustments better. I loosen the fence and move it in and out by adjusting the fence. It works but not nearly as well as an Infra router fence. I bet you could modify a wood fence to do the same thing. You can get the sacrificial fences tight against the router bit.

Here’s a picture of the fence with the sliding MDF sacrificial fences with the t slot where the t bolts fit in.
