Default worry about the right 27" fence to my new table

this is my first post and I must say I am very excited to say that I need help to find the right moderate cost fence single face for my new 27" wide phenolic (sp) top. Really not needing a totally split fence but I am a novice at routing and trying to set up the best versatility and still pay the bills. There is nothing on this table except the plate opening for the plate. Thanks for the help. R

You could make your own fence. It is not rocket science. Search for Steve Ramsey on You Tube. He made a router table and fence. It is nice. Not too complicated and should be something you can base your fence on.

I made my own table top and fence. Works just fine for me.
Note: A split fence can be useful. Make or buy it if you can.

A jointed piece of 2X4 clamped to the table, is as simple as it gets.

Or as suggested by Mike, make your own.

Start with a length of 4x4 angle aluminum.

The video Mike was talking about is below. The fence build starts about half way through. Very easy to build.

I built a split fence out of mdf and particle board scraps. The only thing that cost money were the bolts and knobs and a few biscuits. There is a picture of it in my uploads. It worked really well.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
