I love to tinker and when you combine that with tool porn i.e. flipping through the catalogs, this is what you get. I have a rockler hpl router table and fence. For no good reason I wanted to make it similar to a Kreg type fence. I had a bunch of roller blade bearing lying around and a couple lengths of T-track. I used some oak scraps to make the armature that connects to the fence bracket. The armature had eight bearings which straddle the T-track. The fence is very ridged and does not deflect when moving. There is a second piece of T-track which is flipped upside down and has a tape measure affixed to it. In the fourth picture you can see the knobs underneath. This arrangement allows me to zero the ruler wherever I need it. It ended up being quite accurate. Thanks for looking.

Great looking fence, and it will stay rock solid the way you built it, you should have lots of fun with that setup.
Thank you for sharing.
