Adjusting my old router-table fence was a clumsy operation: After loosening the adjustment knobs, the two halves of the fence wobbled and wouldn't easily align. So, I replaced that fence with one that dials in superb accuracy with just a twist of the wrist.

Aluminum bar stock connects the two fences and ensures they stay parallel during adjustments. Once the fixed fence is clamped in place, the microadjuster dials in the precise fence location. This is especially handy for making multiple passes at increasing depths, something you may need to do if you have a small-motored router or need to hog away large amounts of material.
