Topic tags/keywords: router table fence taytool fence beisemeyer htc unisaw

I have a Unisaw with long HTC (Biesemeyer clone) fence and extension table. For years I wanted to install a router lift on the extension but never got around to it. I finally purchased a Jessum Mast-R-Lift II router lift and love it. I needed to figure out a router table fence and wanted to incorporate my HTC fence for ease of use. There are a ton of DIY router table fences online. However, looking online for a commercial fence I thought a Taytool fence would work for my purposes. I purchased the Taytool 24” router table fence off Amazon. It’s an excellent fence for the money, about $79. I couldn’t build one as cheap if you count the time and needed hardware for feather boards and blade guard. The problem was how to incorporate this fence to my table saw fence. The Taytool fence, as with most router table fences, is designed to attach to the table via T-tracks. I wanted a work around. The Taytool fence is equipped with a dust chute at a 45 degree angle out the back of the fence. This would not allow the Taytool fence to attach flush with my saw fence. My solution was to make two standoff blocks out of a sandwich of 5 pieces of 1/2” Baltic Birch plywood. The five pieces were the exact thickness needed to fit behind the Taytool fence and easy attach to my saw fence. It’s perfectly square with the fence and table and solid as a rock as long as the table saw fence is locked. I haven’t used it as I just finished installing. The vast majority of my router table work is without a fence using pattern bits and a starter pin. I hope this fulfills my fence needs. I just thought I’d share.
