Default NEW Fence

Wha-da-ya-think?

I like sturdy and function not a lot of bells lights and whistles.

This is not a design that allows for offsetting the fence components. I really can't think why I'd need such as I have hand planes and a perfectly good jointer.

The block in the rear has a 1.5" slot for each dog allowing me to move the fence components apart by as much as 3".
The T slot in the top part accepts custom 3/8" thick steel nuts I made that have 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 threads tapped in to 'em.
As such:

Hi

You said that it can move it apart as much as 3" you may want to rework it just a little bit the big panel bits are 3 1/2" or 3 5/8" diam. so to say you will need a 4" opening for them..you may not need it right away but down the road you may.

Just the sort of feed back I'd hoped to get.

Well, two inches thick should be plenty sturdy. I guess I'm a little puzzled by just what the function is you are trying to achieve. I like tall fences to achieve support for pieces taller than the fence but without a bridge over the bit opening, it just becomes a big hole in the fence with nothing in it.
I assume the 3/8-16 rod is a fine adjustment?

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

The tall fence will allow me to clamp things like featherboards to it.
It'll also help me with using my big lockmiter bit.

the 3/8-16 all thread is to clamp the fence halves to the backer.
There is no fine adjustment as the only adjustment is the opening of the halves for the cutter clearance. I'm accustomed to getting my cutter depth set by just tweaking taking a pass and measuring till I'm spot on. Those times I've put an indicator on my prior fence I still had to test cut and re-adjust.

These two fence halves are supposed to always be on the same plan as each other. There is no mechanism to off set one.

Well, that should work for you. I was thinking a big hole in a tall fence isn't such good thing for bits like a drawer lock where, in a lot of cases the side isn't much taller than the bit diameter. Running the sides through vertically gets problematic without a bridge over the bit opening. Good Luck

I'm assuming you mean because the work piece can fall into the opening if it is not wide enough to span the gap?

I think that If I encounter such an issue I can run a dado across the fence parts and make an insert that will fit in nicely, sliding to accommodate different gap openings.

That would probably work for you. I was just trying to point out some alternative scenarious that you may encounter so you could consider them.

Some more pics these are of the adjusters I made.
They let me adjust the table in and out as well as for square. The Split nut allows me to quickly cycle the All-Thread through the split nut for fast positioning
