Default Do You Own An Incra Wonder Fence??

This thread is for you guys/gals that own an Incra Wonder Fence. If you have ever read the manual that comes with it, your may recall where it warns you to not back the rectangular nuts off any further than is necessary to uninstall each half from the primary fence. For the most part it is obvious that you would certainly never need to do that and consequently it might be safe to say that nobody would ever do so.

I strongly suggest that you heed this warning. I'm probably the only one in history that made the mistake of accidently do so and for what ever reason that I can't recall right now, I ended up having to take one half of the split fence completely apart, that was not very hard to do, but putting it back together was another matter.
Now I'm going to assume that nobody but myself has ever had to re-assemble their Wonder fence, but if, just if, anybody needs to know the trick to putting it back together, let me know. I hope that nobody ever needs to ask. I'm not saying that you can't figure it out, but I might speed up the process for you if you need some help.

But the reason for this thread is just to warn folks not to ever make the mistake of taking it completely apart.

Be happy to!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

I just got the Incra TS-LS 1 combo package, I'm setting it up on a 1979 Delta Unisaw. Any recommendations? Does anyone have the INCRA CleanSweep Downdraft Dust Collection Cabinet? Is it worth getting, I'm trying to keep dust from the router to a minimum.
Thanks,
Vin

The Clean Sweep plate inserts work great but you need the Incra Magna-Lock plate. 95% of the dust is collected, even when routing grooves/dados.
You must have the slotted inserts for the 'Clean Sweep' to do what it is designed to do.

As for the under table cabinet, any collection box that encloses the perimeter of the plate works fine. I bought mine from Peachtree for $40 less than the Incra box.

There is no shame in saying 'I don't know'.

I put mine back together by using painter's tape- taping the screw/washer to the end of a screwdriver, going from center screw and working my way out towards the sides to avoid having my limited view of the screw hole obscured by an adjacent screw.

It would be nice if Incra would include an x-ray view of how it all goes together in the owner's manual. They just warn you not to disassemble it or remove the long T-nuts and imply, "good luck getting it back together if you do." This thread is the only Google search result with any mention of WonderFence reassembly.

As I understand it, referring to each sliding fence half- the outer most screws are the short ones, and fasten the static portion (gold) of the depth slider to the fence. Between these parts are where the shim tape is to square the fence. The center screw threads into a long T-nut that slides in the groove on the sliding (black) depth slider, which you only loosen/adjust when you are making a depth adjustment. The 2 remaining screws to either side of the center thread into T-nuts that fasten the sliding fence half to the long fence, loosened only when you need to slide the fence halves apart to clear a wide router bit... or in conjunction with the center screw when making a depth adjustment.
