Question Router Table Fences

I am curious of whether a majority of users prefer single or double segment fences on router tables.

I use Jointech and Benchdog fences and they are both split.

I'm in the split fence camp as well.

Definitely a single fence. I have a range, tall, short, long, not long and "L." The "L" fence is the only one that doesn't attach directly to the table. I wouldn't want a split fence. However, that said, I am using the OakPark/Router Workshop philosophy that provides a lot of flexibility and allows the use of fences like this. Other philosophies _may_ not.

Hi OPG3:

Welcome to the Router Forums!

To answer your question, I'm using Incra's 17" LS Positioner Super System (LS Positioner/Pro-Fence II plus Wonder Fence.) This is a split fence.

Split fence with a replacable insert for zero clearance.

Both.
I like the split fence with replaceable insert best. It has the best vacuum system.
