Default Nylon Fence?

I was wondering where I might get the nylon fence that I see on the Router Workshop shows? It is the one that they clamp on to the router table. It is white and appears to be made of nylon.
Thank you

Hi doctordun

You can get it from OP or Ptree

http://www.ptreeusa.com/uhmwproducts.htm
You will need to call OP it's not listed as a item they sale with out buying the system.

I do recommend Ptree, buy the wide stuff and then you can cut it down to size on your table saw...in that way you will have more than one.

Hi Doctordun: It is called Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) polyethylene and is available anywhere plastic is sold. It is a commodity so shop around. On any given day you'll have a variety of prices.

Hope this helps.

be carefull with UHMW it tends too be unstable....temp. changes can make it move around...im a tool and die maker,when ever we machine the stuff we have too be careful with higer tolerances.UHMW will changs sizes on ya after it sits for awhile.........this may not make a differance in the aplication were talking about here but just keep it in mind.

Hi Chris: interesting comment. Typically I use it for a fence on a router table because I thought it was stable. Under what conditions does it go haywire >90 degrees F? Or, >60 F?

Unaffected by humidity? What about impact.

Pain in the but to bond/glue but fine for mechanical fasteners?

Input appreciated - vacuum happening here.

Welcome to the Forum Doc: Those fences are available from Oak-Park, They come in different lengths. The also sell the jointer fence, made out of the same stuff. That is the fence that has the output side of the fence wider than the input side. Hope this helps.
