JessEm Mast-R-Fence™ II
RatingAttachment to existing router table.The fence came with 8 wood screws but my router table is cast iron. This means that I have to drill and tape my router table top to accept this fence.
Would have liked to receive 8 machine screws of the appropriate size.
RatingGreat product - great storeI did a lot of research to determine this was the best fence (at least for me). Frankly, I bought it from Woodwerks because they had the best price. Sometimes getting the best price means you suffer after the purchase. Not so here. The fence arrived really fast and in perfect shape. Ordering the product you want, at a good price, and having it delivered quickly doesn't sound like such a big deal, but many merchants can't pull it off. These guys did.
RatingJessEm Mast-R-Fence IIReceived item quickly, good condition.
Pros: easy to install and adjust, side scales enable easy duplication of fence settings, very solid
Cons: hardware provided (screws, bolts) very poor quality. Several of the screws twisted off when installing the side guides on my MDF router table. Bolt heads rounded off when tightening for vertical adjustment. Side scales are hard to set since they tend to move as the set screw is tightened that holds them in place.
Even with the hardware issues, this is a big improvement over my old router fence, and I am overall pleased with it.
