INCRA Wonder Fence Upgrade
Upgrading to the Wonder Fence allows an existing LS- or Ultra-based INCRA Router System to perform EVERY fence-guided operation that can be done on a router table.The Wonder Fence integrates routing functions into the INCRA TS Saw Systems by providing all of the adjustments of a large commercial shaper in a very precise, compact package. By combining the Wonder Fence with the built-in micro adjust of your TS Fence System, you're able to explore countless precision routing operations, with each fence position repeatable and micro adjustable.
Now available for imperial or metric INCRA Systems!
The Wonder Fence slides into the T-slot on front of the rip fence, allowing the infeed and outfeed fence halves to be adjusted independently to accommodate the largest router bits available. Hardware is also included for attaching wooden zero-clearance subfences for producing cleaner shaping cuts and for closing in the area around the router bit. Since the fences are made from scrap wood, there's no need to periodically purchase plastic zero-clearance fence inserts.
The Wonder Fence is also adjustable for offset between the infeed and outfeed halves. A pair of opposed wedges behind each fence half provides a true, continuous micro adjust for the relation-ship between the fence halves, and laser engraved offset scales are marked every 0.002" for an accurate reference. It's a huge improvement over stacking spacers behind the outfeed fence achieve a sort of offset.
This precise offset ability combined with the speed of a router allows you to joint glass-smooth edges on rough lumber if you don't own a jointer.
If you're using a reversible glue joint router bit, the offset feature can let you bypass the table saw and jointer when prepping your lumber - the offset allows the bit to straighten rough-edged boards and profile them in one pass, all with true zero-clearance if you choose.

Ultra positioner-based INCRA TS Systems may need to have the fence extrusion upgraded to be fully compatible with the Wonder Fence. The early-style rip fences that need to be upgraded can be identified by having only one T-slot on the front face and one T-slot on the side where it mounts to the carriage. Newer Wonder Fence-compatible rip fences are machined on the front face, have black end caps, and have TWO T-slots on the side where it attaches to the carriage. Please contact us for special pricing on this upgrade if you have an early-style fence.
