I have the Bench Dog router table fence, which is a great unit, and I’m looking for a riser kit. Looks like they aren’t sold anymore. Anybody have one they would sell? I have the fence, but just need the four brackets, knobs and screws. I’d happily pay $$$ for it.

New old stock, demo units, or used are all fine with me.

Thanks!!

Or a bolt-on shop solution for a tall router table fence?

Is this what you are talking about? I’m thinking not as it’s more a hold down to keep the bit from riding the stock up, so you get a consistent depth of cut. I use one all the time, but it only came with a few knobs, no clips like you have circled. Sold as a safety thing, I find it a lot more use for holding work to the table.

I’m familiar with that panel hold down accessory. This is different. It’s four brackets that attach to the back of the fence track. They allow you to screw a tall fence to the brackets, while still keeping the regular split fence below.

I ended up making my own tall fence add on from MDF because those bracket are like hen’s teeth.

That allowed for a much taller support than those OEM brackets would allow anyway.

Did you just bolt another layer of MDF to the factory fence? Or what did your solution look like?

I’ll snap a pic when I return from vacation next week but I’ll try and describe wha I did.

I made a tall fence of mdf and melamine (I think) to sit on top of the aluminum fence like the BD one. It’s exactly the thickness of the extrusion which took some doing. Then I made two torsion boxes to use as supports and grab handles either side of the dust port. They attach to the channel via long bolts and star knobs. Think I made it 12” tall.

Nothing fancy or spectacular, I just needed a tall support to sTabilize some 1×12 cedar I was putting a lock miter on. Took longer to paint than it did to construct it. Rock solid though.

Works great., and is taller.

it just takes longer to attach / remove than the BD clips.

Have your say...
