pivoting fence, small profiles?
I'm planning on making a VERY simple table for a small trim router so I can make miniature wood trim for architectural models. I've seen a photo of one that has one end of the fence connected to the table with a knob to tighten and the other side of the fence swings free, just clamped where needed. I've seen this kind of setup on larger tables too, is there an advantage or disadvantage to this setup rather than having the whole fence able to move (assuming I know I will only be using it for very thin pieces of wood and won't need the extra room behind the cutter)
Also, does anyone have any suggestions or safety tips for working with thin pieces of wood like this? For example, my "crown molding" will be 3/8" thick, and "baseboards" may only be 1/8" or less, both around 3/8" wide and 24" length. I'm thinking I'll need to tape/glue the pieces to be cut onto a larger board for the cut. Anyone working with very small profiling cuts like this?
Thanks everyone, great info on this site!!
