Default Pivot Fence

I'm thinking about how to accommodate pivot fence motion when using t-tracks for both ends of the fence. Assuming that one end of the fence, say the left end when facing the table, is the pivot point, wouldn't the right end of the fence need to have a slot cut perpendicular to the t-track to allow for movement of the t-bolt?

A different situation would be if only one t-track was used and the other end was a fixed pivot point, in that situation the moving fence end would need an arced slot.

Is this correct?

Hi

Yes and no

If you use the left side for the pivot point than all you need to do free up the right side by removing the knob, the one I use is spring loaded on the right side..it just snaps into a 3/8" hole..quick and easy, no spring type just pull the knob and stud..but I will say if you use the tee track on the left side the hole will need to be bigger than the norm...( 5/8" works well ) for the fine adjustment..

Hi all
I did something like that. The entire guide can move forward or backward for quick adjustment, and then fine tuning is done with a pivot to the left and right thumb screw.
This guide can be seen on the website below

Hi

Here's my fine adjustment device, I got the tip from the router table pro's. Bob R. and Rick R. of the RWS, it's not high tech but it sure works in the KISS way.

OR

Router Fence Micro Adjuster

" This router table fence Micro-Adjuster gives you great accuracy when using it in conjuction with your router table fence.
