Default Ryobi router table

Hi, Y'all I am new to router forums. I have one of those cheapo ryobi tables, and I am really confused by the fence. Once side is thicker than the other side, and I don't understand how you can do a strait line on it. Lately I have just been clamping a strait board to it. How is it really supposed to work?

I assume the left side is thicker, yes? It's to support the piece after you take that amount off of it with the bit.

Hi Jerry

Many of the lower end router tables are made the same way,it's made so you can use it like a planer, by moving the out feed side of the fence in or out, it's best to use it just like you are doing,make a fence out of the good true lumber, (3/4" MDF) it's best to use some carr.bolts with some wing nuts/knobs on the back side of the fence, then you will be a happy camper..

You can move the left side (as you face the front) of the fence in or out by using some of the knobs. You just need to loosen them up, slide the piece back so that it is all the way back against the rest of the fence (I think it will also be at the back of the slot that is used to move it back and forth).

At least this is how the one I have works. The knobs to make the adjustment are different than the ones that move the whole fence back and forth or the ones that allow the 2 parts of the fence face to slide apart. I was just looking at the manual for a different ryobi table than the one I have and it looks like it is only one knob for the back and forth adjustment.

The manuals should explain it better, even though both are for different tables, the setup for the fence is basically the same.

Thanks for y'alls responses. Yes if I was reducing the size, I see how the fence works, but when doing grooves and dadoes, I guess I will continue with a homemade fence. Again, thanks
