Sampling of WOOD's Top Tips, Part 1

Micro Adjuster

10-minute microadjuster

This simple router table microadjuster takes only minutes to make, and pays huge dividends in accuracy. It consists of a rabbeted backstop that hooks over the rear of the router table and locks into the same T-track that the fence rides in. The backstop houses 6-32 pronged T-nuts in through holes to hold 6-32 threaded rod. I added a jam nut and couplers to act as a handle and a reference to indicate the adjustment amount. Each full turn of the coupler nudges the fence 1/32".

How is the other end of the threaded rod attached to the fence?

It would be good either way just as long as it had a jam nut or something along that line.

Good plan,although I have always found that t nuts will always work loose in time especially if used in a push pull situation. I much prefer using threaded inserts as they never seem to loosen up if installed properly.

Yes, this works quite well, I have it as standard on my "TRITON Router Table" that came factory made, with extras. Still accurate 7 yrs later.
