Default router fence to fit Shop Fox ts fence

My first question: Is there a router fence design on board that would fit, or could be redesigned to fit, a Shop Fox ts fence?

The SF fence is 2 1/2" high by 3 15/16" wide.
I have a scrap piece of 1" MDF on hand that could be used in its construction.

Thanks!
Dave

Hello Dave, Wish that i had answers, but i don't. I would suggest a search on router forums, and the web. Also, go to Shop Fox web sight, and search for a fence. Thats about all i can suggest. Could be that the right person will be able to direct you. Sorry Dave, Thats all i can do.

I am not sure I understand what you want to do. Is you router a part of the TS? And are you looking to have one side of the TS fence be useable with the router? Some others will, I am sure, understand better that I do with my limited experience and have a solution for you. It would help anyone to better know what you are trying to accomplish.

Here is a .pdf file of the manual for the Shop Fox Classic fence (might be yours):http://grizzly.com/images/manuals/g8826_m.pdf It describes how to mount a sacrificial fence to the body of the fence. If you construct the sacrificial fence for your router side to employ the addition of a couple of cheeks (see attached), that should be all you need. The cheeks will allow you to keep the bit and work out from the fence. Most of the plans for router tables and fences will show how to build and mount cheeks on the fence. I used this guide when I built mine: Routing Hints And Tips Good luck.

You might be able to use one of these Universal Fence Clamps to clamp an auxiliary fence to it: Fence Clamp LINK
