Router fences
for palm router.

Another simple inspiration blog, with accessories for the palm router, this time fences.
Simple side fences and a split fence.


Some of you have seen the basic acrylic fence I made for the palm router, I use it all the time and the transparent fence is quite cool.


Edges were rounded over.


Holes and countersink made at the drill press.


Bolt, wingnut and washers.


For some reason the holes in the fence are crazy large…
So I filled them up with small washers, but will make a washer, that fits there.


Less is plenty.


Next up is a more advanced split fence.
Some form work plywood is cut up. (type used for concrete casting).
I use this, as it is strong, stiff and smooth.


Rabbet cut to fit the fence dimensions.
Then cut in half.


Marks are made when the two sides are closed up.


And when opened up.


Long hole is routed between the marks.


Rabbet on the other side.


So a flat head bolt can ride in it.


And held in place, by a wingnut, so it can be opened and closed easy.


All edges rounded over.


Mounting the fence.


Washers to fill the hole.


Top washer and wingnut.


Front.


Back.


Router fence set to fit the bit size.


Here mounted on the table.


While I was at it, I also made a longer straight fence.


Edges rounded over.


Front.


Back.


Less is longer as they say…

Hope it can be to some inspiration.

Hi there,
Lew, yes I love it too, have to find some more, once I run out. Thanks.
pottz, I use the woodworking to rest my mind, it might sound crazy, but I have ptsd, so it helps to keep the brain busy, like this the stress are not allowed in. So my workshop is my meditation room, keeps me calm and happy.
Best thoughts and happy new year,
Mads
