Have to agree with building a fence. Since the bit is spinning in a horizontal plane and not a vertical one like the TS, there is not a need for worrying about dead on alignment. You can build a box style fence with adjustable faces that will span the top and clamp the back edges to the table. To adjust depth of cut you only need to pivot one end. Take a look at the Router Workshop on YouTube You’ll be surprised to see how simple a router fence can be and learn to use your own, “Fine Adjustment Tool”

I’m on my second fence, I built a box style like in the pic but redesigned to use a 4” port for my DC on the top, I don’t have an enclosure on my router and the CFM from the 4” on top gets most everything when I’m doing edges.

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
