Default router top size for incra

Hey, I'm on a roll I sat down to do some employee reports and it was trumped by a router question. I made a general search for the question earlier, but now that I have the fortunate benefit of a vast amount of experience and knowledge out there here it goes. If I purchase the Incra fence and accessories what size table shoul I make ? thanks in advance for any advice. Paul

I have the Ultra. The manual suggests a 24x32 table. I initially builts a 32x20 table to fit my table saw. It limited the use of the table saw so I put it on a stand I built a few years ago. Since I set it up for cutting wide I added an extension for the Incra. It's very funky but it works and I may incorporate this into a "standard" table like the NYW table.

So you think the 32x 20 will work well with the ultra on a seperate stand ?

Hi Paul,

I just checked the Incra LS Positioner manual and they state that the leading edge of the base is 19 3/4" from the centre of the bit for the 17" model and 27 3/4" for the 25" model. Work back from there.

Which model are you looking at?

It will work if you build out a "bridge." Since the bridge does not have to be dead level, all you have to do is check that you get smooth movement of the fence. I'll try to get a photo of my current setup in the next few days.
