The fence on my Craftsman (aluminum top) table is very difficult to adjust fore and aft. It moves connected to “slots” in the table, very imprecise. It is a good fence otherwise. I suppose the problem is not one that I alone have. I spent a lot of time looking over the internet for some add-on device to make the task of incrementally feeding the router bit on deep cuts. The commercial add-ons-- did not fit or were very expensive. One person had made an adjuster from a "turnbuckle". The idea looked like something I could modify and use..... I have attached a couple of photos of my "model 1", which works fine. I “lock” the left side of the fence at a pivot point. A lock washer gives the point ease of “rotation”. I used grommets at the turnbuckle ends, compressed, so fore and aft turning of the turnbuckle would have no "play". The turnbuckle has stainless steel threads and is good quality. It has 24TPI, but the action is doubled (two ends). The resulting “pitch” of movement is about .080 inch per turn. The total movement of the turnbuckle is 1.5 inches.
