Default What is that for!

I just bought a used Craftsman Router & Table. I have 2 questions about the fence. #1 - left of the router bit is a small block that can be pushed out from the fence so it sticks out about an inch. What is this for? #2 - On the top of the fence is a sliding block with a long screw that has a metal flange on it. I think this is some type of stop block, but how is it supposed to lock in with that screw? Thanks for your help.

Hi jheld

A picture or part number for your router table would b e a big help..

But I'm almost the block on the left hand side of the bit is a offset part of the fence,,,so you can use the router table as a planer or when the router bit has no bearing on it and it takes sock off the edge of the wood, so you can set the offset fence out just a little bit to pickup the stock on the out feed side of the pass..

I'm not to sure what the part is with a screw in it...
