May I suggest you look up the article by Pat Warner on his Micro-Adjustable Router Fence? The Woodworking Online article is a simplified version of Mr. Warner's design. Mr. Warner's design even includes a micrometer to accurate measure the setting of the fence.

A Pat Warner's article on a similar fence: http://www.patwarner.com/routerfence.html

A different design appears in the Taunton Press books, such as "Working With Routers". A couple of photos of the Micro-Adjustable Router Fence are on http://www.patwarner.com/router_table.html.

May I suggest the INCRA. Around $500 if price hasn't gone up. Had to make some adjustment to add this to my table but was worth it.

A micrometer is overdoing it IMHO. I have the INCRA Jig which cost about $80. If I don't use that, then I use one of my regular fences and adjust it by moving one of the ends slightly.

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Guess it just depends on what you're making. That's why there are so many tools to choose from and why we have a choice of which one to buy.

Been using the Veritas system for some time. It included a micro-adjust that is calibrated (1/1000) for movement at the router bit. I didn't think I would use it much at first but now I wouldn’t be without it. It can be popped on & off quickly and makes those final fine cuts a breeze. It's really sweet.
