How much time does your fence save you, compared to a Router Workshop style fence? I know you like your fence very much, and from what I know of the model it is one of the better "complex, expensive" fences.
I don't know how much time it would save me. I am sure that Bob and Rick are very proficient at setting their fence. I wouldn't be. It comes down to what one is adept at doing.
When you do build your own fence, what would it be like? How would it differ from the one you use now?
My table top is 24 x 48 inches. So, the fence is a long one, made from 3/4" baltic birch plywood, fashioned on what was shown in one magazine.
Base is 4x48 inches, 1-1/2inches thick.
Riser is a stack of 3/4 inch plywood layers, about 1-1/2" x 48"
Faces are two 4x24 inches, 3/4 inch thick.
Aluminum angle at bottom of faces to keep the faces in line and to allow adjusting the gap between them.
Dust collection port out the back.
T-track for stops and featherboards.
To build it, I'll need a set of skis, along the line that Harry pushes. I can use my router table top to run the skis on, while flattening the riser.
I was in the process of making it when I decided to buy the Incra system. So, the fence on the to-do list.
