Default Table Saw/Router Fence

I am looking for a design that would allow me to utilize my existing table saw fence, which has "Micro Adjust". I would like to make something that would slip over the existing fence unless there is a better suggestion. What features would you suggest that I incorporate into this design. Here is my current setup.

Here's what I did. I can route in either direction with this set up.

If you are in very close quarters then a saw table set up is a space saver. Keep in mind every time you want to use the saw or router you will need to remove or change your set ups. If you have the space you are much better off with a stand alone router table. You do not need micro adjusters to make accurate routs. A set of brass set up bars works just fine.

I prefer a separate fence for the router, that way you can leave both the table saw and the router setup at the same time.

That's a very nice setup. Do you clamp the router fence to the rip fence when you place it against the rip fence?

Thanks,

Justin

That is a very interesting setup. It looks like it is very versatile. Have you found the need to use the fence in the other positions very often?

Yes if I don't need to use the saw. I also have the incra fence as you can see in the picture. I have not use this set up much since this is my secondary set up because I have separate router table.

Yes, it's the reason why I have this set up as secondary. A lot of times I need to router 8 feet long 1x2 for the cabinet top and did not want to pull out the router table..

I have put my router and table together and use my saw fence as a router guide. I have made a couple of different fences to attach and it works well. As someone stated earlier you can use set up bars for adjustment. I like the larger table for the router.
