HI Allan

The easy way, screw some 3/4" thick MDF stock to the side of the OP poly.fence and clamp it down the same way with the 2 C-clamps..two flat head screws and some wing nuts and you will have a tall fence..that you can put it on any time you need one..

hope this helps

Allan, depending on how often you think you will use a tall fence BJ's solution is an excellent one. If you think you will use a tall fence for a lot of projects you can build an extra fence with two pieces of MDF or plywood set at 90° and support it with some gussets. Using your regular fence as a guide cut a small chamfer on the bottom of the face for dust to escape through. You will see this feature on your poly fence. This type of fence is used for some projects on the Router Workshop show.

Very good question, and two excellent answers upon which I cannot improve, other than possibly to use HDPE (from which the Oak Park fences are built) and cut the ends low enough that the C-clamps fit.. There is a supplier from which I obtained it, intended for a different purpose. When I receivedit I discovered that it was not smooth bur rather had the saw marks on it. Another possibliity might be to build the tall fence ans Bob and Mike have suggested, then put TeflonŽ tape on it to create as smooth and friction-free surface as possible.

How high do you want your fence to be?
The one change I would make to the Oak Park system would be to have much higher fences, at least 4 in. (10 cm) and 6 in (15 cm) if possible with a way to attach featherboards.
