Kevin - They're tee-bolts - just sitting there to illustrate the slots that are cut the full length of the fence - to attach to the aluminum angle fence and for jigs.

Is that plastic material rigid enough to not flex when used as a fence?
Paul - The UHMWPE (split) Fence (faces) are attached to an aluminum angle - the real fence. Check out the other pics.

Hi Boomerang; Not sure if I can see all of the picture...but is your table made of that plastic material as well.Looks impressive.I have some of that material I plan on using when I get my plate for my router...............Looks like you may use some big cutters there.Did you try making various inserts of that plastic as well.saw it done before...cuts out a profile of a preferred bit for zero clearance.....LATER,Dave.

I made the Table from 1-1/4" MDF and laminated both sides. Phenolic plate and inserts are from Woodhaven.com - they also provided the template for the cut out. all worked out very well. I also have a Triton Router (Oz design) which allows me to change bits "above table".

First post - finding my way around


That looks very impressive to me boomerang, Is this your design? I bought a router table last week and I know already I wont like it. Can you tell us the source of the material? Welcome! DON

Homemade router fence material

Is there a source or supply of the plastic (looks like nylon) material for making homemade router fences?

So how do you like that Triton router? Have heard some good things about it.
:D LOVE it - specifically for table use (for me). Above-table bit changes and the unique closed in "cowl" lets me extract dust from the side. It's way too heavy for me to use hand held. I realize I'm not using all the other nice features.

Here's a great review: http://www.mv.com/users/besposito/woodworking/triton/

I hope they attach...
I know I'm about a year late to ask about this, but I'm a beginning woodworker who has just discovered this resource. Boomerang: Your fence looks really spiffy. Is that a fine adjustment knob in the back there? Do you have plans for this fence set-up or can you tell me where to get them? Also, where did you get the aluminum angle?
