Default cast-iron router table question

I have a Grizzly cabinet saw with a cast-iron router table on the right side. I need to build a fence for it that will either attach to the Biesemeyer fence or attach to the table itself with magnets.

Any suggestions?

If you are looking for a good fence system that can -if you wish - mount to your tablesaw rip fence, go to the Wood Working Tools, Wood Working Supply, Wood Working Equipment - Woodhaven website. I have their model 202-T fence which does just that. Costs about $125.

One thing nice about WoodHaven products is the time they'll spend on the phone with you answering questions about routers.

Good luck to you,

Build a fence that attaches to your Bies. Either a box that slips over it, or use clamps.

I would suggest just about the same as Mike, above. Since I'm lazy, I would just make two separate "cheeks" out of whatever was handy but UHWM plastic would be a good choice. Into the back of these cheeks, I would drill and place two, or more, neodymium magnets. The rare earth magnets would hold the cheeks securely to the steel Bies fence.

I would do a hybrid of Mike and Lance's ideas. I'd get 2 pairs of the Rockler Universal Fence Clamps, using one pair when I want the fence-halves coplanar and using 1 pair each on two subfences when I wanted them offset, such as for jointing. With a planer you can make different thickness pairs for different amounts of stock removal.
