Developed by a firm that manufactures industrial CNC routing equipment, this fence system brings the accuracy and repeatability of computer control to your router table. Instead of having to measure and then adjust your router fence manually, you simply use an LCD touch screen to enter the offset you need relative to the bit.
The digital controller moves the fence precisely to within 0.001" of your setting. It also comes pre-programmed to automate the multiple fence movements required when routing dadoes, box joints and half-blind dovetails. (Other programs can be purchased from the manufacturer's website and downloaded to a home computer for transfer via the built-in USB port.) Just enter the width of your stock and follow the prompts; the controller works out the arithmetic for you. For example, it will automatically calculate the number and spacing of pins and tails to make a dovetail joint; you need only manually set the height of the router bit. The system is remarkably user-friendly and does not require an external computer or any user programming.
The system is supplied with an aluminum fence (32" long, 3" high, 3/4" wide) with three T-tracks on its face to allow mounting of jigs and accessories using T-slot nuts (not included). An included touch plate and magnetic sensor are used to calibrate the fence position relative to the router bit being used.
Maximum fence travel is 9 3/4". The main housing is made of high-density polyethylene and has a 2 1/4" vacuum port for connection to a dust-collection hose. Two 10 1/2" × 3" steel plates are used to mount the fence to your table (fasteners or clamps not included). When mounted, the unit occupies a minimum of 4 1/2" of your router table’s width and requires a minimum table length of about 18".
An excellent system – no jigs, math or fence-wrangling needed. Made in USA.
