Hi Waly. This question comes up frequently. You'll find numerous discussions of the pros and cons of different designs by doing a search on "fence".

Also, take a look in this thread for pics:

For many but not all occasions: Curtain fence, built for safety first.

Thanks for your comments.

Can drill, sand, saw & rout but little else.
Not a machinist, just make all mistakes for first 10 years +.
Then, at least, you stand a chance.
All processes simple and precise; it just takes time to learn what it takes to hit target.

Pat, that fence belongs in a glass case! I'd find it hard to use it and get saw dust on it!! Very nice!!!

Hi Wally:

Ok, I have a short cross bench fence and a long fence for the length of the table. I also have high fences (short and long) and I've defined the curtain fence (noted above) and the "L" fence. There is also a split fence that a lot of commercial vendors support. My fences work with "C" clamps and a fine adjusting tool. My high fences work well with feather boards and other hold down mechanisms.

Which are you looking to implement?
