Router Table Fence

Comments (0)

A router table fence is not an accessory; it’s a necessity. In fact, without a fence, a router table isn’t much more than a piece of shop furniture. And a good fence makes all the difference in the world. If you’re ready to pitch that twisted 2×4 fence in the stove, here’s your chance to replace it with a top-notch design that ensures clean, accurate, efficient work.

Although this fence was designed for the router table on page 20, it’s a great addition to any commercial or shop-made router table. Its sliding fence faces can be adjusted close to a bit to provide maximum support on the infeed and outfeed sides. A sacrificial beveled insert can also be used to provide additional support. A T-track above the sliding fences allows for the attachment of stops, hold-downs, or a guard, and a dust-collection port provides for a vacuum hookup. Cap screws and knobs make for easy table attachment and fence adjustment via T-tracks set into a router top. Of course you can easily modify the fence length to suit any router table.
