Dual-duty fence stretches router table's capacity
The problem with most router tables is that the fence won't adjust more than a few inches from the bit. While that's fine for edge work and a few other situations, it doesn't make full use of the table (for example, when fluting a wide workpiece).
To improve the situation, this two-way alternate fence works with both the length and width of your table. Depending on the table size, you may be able to firmly position the fence up to 20" away from the bit. The side arms automatically align the fence with the table, and a pair of bar clamps hold the fence solidly in place.
