Default Router table fence

Hi, I am new to the forum (I live in the UK) Having now made a router table following plans from a US design (Jeff Green) I would now like to make an adjustable fence ie one that can be opened and closed to suit cutter size and also able to have the outfeed side adjustable forwards and backwards. Does anybody have any suggestions, hints, photo's to help in my quest?

Welcome Andy. You will find a great deal of information here on how to use the router in a number of ways. Think outside the square when deciding what method to use. Leaving your router in the table you will not be using your router at its full potential

I have made my own.

I made my own wooden T-track. You can get alloy track from Rutlands and Tilgear in the U.K.
I should have more photos, they may be in my gallery on this site.

Click on Mike Wingate's Gallery towards bottom left of this section and look on pages 8,9,11,12 for a few more details. I think the thread is "my fence sucks. I have added alternative fence faces to my Incra Ultra fence. The sacrificial centre block has tapered edges to keep it tight. between the 2 longer fences. Inset a piece of plastic strip or a pair of metal rules under the left hand fence, to do edge planing.

Thanks to all you chaps for the replys, there is plenty for me to now go into a darkened room and mull over. It seems the US is more geared up to this business than the UK, the range of items here are limited and after checking prices for comparable items (most of which seems to originate in the US e.g. MLCS, Incra, Woodpeckers etc) I fear we are paying through the teeth yet again.
Prices for some of these items are to say the least, slightly inhibitive, so the need to DIY is rife and there is a certain satisfaction that you Did It Yourself anyway.

Once again thanks to all, you have been most helpful.
Andy
