Advice needed on Incra fences
I would really appreciate some input from users of the Incra fences. When we go north next month, I want to upgrade some equipment, but I'm not sure how best to proceed.
I have a TS3650 with a Bench Dog cast iron router table installed in place of the left table extension. I'm satisfied with the stock saw fence and guard/splitter, but I want to get the Incra positioner (with all of the joinery bells and whistles) for the router. I had a lot of fun last summer building some small boxes, and I want to try some of the fancier joints that Incra advertises.
I thought about getting either the 17 or 25 inch positioner, and mounting the clamping unit on a build-it panel (or a replacement panel for the Miter5000) and locking the panel in the saw's miter slot with a miter slider. I don't see any negative safety or accuracy issues in going that way, and I don't want the trouble and expense of going to the full saw/router combo (including a new guard system for the saw) If I don't need to.
Any thoughts? Thanks,
