Wow. What a great forum. I’ve been reading through a lot of posts. Just bought myself a grizzly g1023rlw it has the router wing attached. I did a ton of research and it seems that saw will be perfect for my needs. I have a small 16×16 shop and I am trying to set up an efficient workspace. My question is regarding a router fence. Is there a way to get a router fence( like a woodpeckers super fence) to clamp to the back side of my ts fence. I really don’t want to build one. I am open to almost any model of router fence. I called woodpeckers and they said they haven’t heard of anyone doing this. It seems like it should be simple to do. Just some kind of “L” bracket? Am I missing something? Thanks!

Haven’t done it, but I’m sure you could attach a couple of pieces of aluminum angle to the superfence and clamp it to your saw fence. The travel of the fence though will only be as precise as the travel of your saw fence. A Router table fence is usually more precise and sensitive than a table saw fence, IME.

Why don’t you just use your existing fence with some sacrificial boards clamped to it? Works well and all you need to do is cut a half-circle (or whatever shape you want really) in the bottom of the boards so you can embedded your router bit into it.

I could do that brad but I was looking for something a little more permanent and quick to set up. I was looking at my incra router fence tonight. It looks like it will easily clamp to my ts fence. I have to take it off the ls positioner of course. I wonder if I can come up with a set up that will let the positioner slide into the miter slots on my ts. Then I could use it as it was designed. I really only have room for one router table. My plan was to sell the incra and buy a different fence. I don’t use the incra often but it would be nice to keep if possible. Thanks for the replies!

I think I found something that will work on the woodpeckers website. I will give it a go and post a pic. Thanks for the replies. I have gotten so much good info on these forums its incredible!

Check out Very Cool Suoer Tools. He has a table saw fence made from aluminum extrusions. This might work.

I would look into mounting the entire Incra router table system somehow to your table saw. IMHO the Incra system is the most accurate and flexible systems there is. I even replaced the Delta UniFence on my table saw with an Incra LS-TS fence.

Pay attention to feed direction with the router. You will want to feed right to left so that the router bit pulls the wood against the fence. Depending on where you mount the fence you may have to feed the wood through the router from the back of the saw. This would affect any plans to add an outfeed table to the saw.

I would like the incra system on my ts. My only concern is the amount of room it takes up. Especially with the router table on the right side. My shop is only 16×16 so space is very limited.

if you get the VSC fence (which I highly recommend, it’s awesome) you could mount the Incra wonderfence right to the back side of it and use it that way, or if it doesn’t fit you could always build your own as suggested. The VSC fence is an upgrade for any saw as it should be for the price.
