With computer-controlled precision, repeatable fence settings stored in memory, a pre-installed suite of apps, and many more to come, this first-ever electronic router fence ushers the humble router table into the "smart" era.
Woodworkers used to endlessly tapping and bumping their fences will appreciate the ease and simplicity of pressing only a few buttons to dial in a setting. Simply zero out the fence, and every adjustment afterwards is accomplished with the onboard touch-screen interface and a precision lead screw with anti-backlash. Three "apps" are included for box joints, dadoes, half-blind dovetails, plus step-and- repeat functions such as those for fluted columns and beadboard. The fence works without a computer attached, but a USB port on the back allows you to easily install additional apps and update software.
Accurate to within 0.001".
Perfect repeatability for joinery such as dadoes, half-blind dovetails and box joints, and for decorative elements such as flutes.
A stroke of the touch screen commands the fence to move to its next position - perfect for step-and-repeat operations.
The standard Apps included with the R2R Fence only package are: Touch plate calibration, box joint, dado, step & repeat, and half blind dovetail
To space and cut box joints, simply enter the diameter of your bit and the width of your workpiece and the system automatically positions the fence for the cuts.
Touch screen can be used to indicate the router bit width, and to convert to metric decimals or fractions. For example, you can use a 1/4" bit to rout a 12mm dado without complicated calculations or measurements.
Firmware updates are made via USB port on the rear of the fence.
Tight-tolerance lead screw precisely moves the fence in relation to the bit.
Up to six fence positions can be saved in the system's memory so you can come back later and repeat the operations.
Note: The Ready2Rout Fence does not control router bit height. The bit height is set in the conventional manner.
