Pro-Fence System Router Table
This large, 20" x 21-3/4" Router Table is designed to work only with MARK V's equipped with our Pro Fence System upgrade.

Connecting RodsTable Surface
Accepting virtually any hand-held router motor, it can be used as a “floating table” between your MARK V's work table and Extension Table- or as an outboard unit, supported by your Extension Table and Telescoping Legs.

Made of 1-1/4" thick double-refined MDF (medium density fiberboard), ALL surfaces are laminate-covered for durability and smooth-gliding action.

Nine threaded inserts in the table surface accept our optional, Hold-In Featherboards for support when straight-line routing against the Fences -- or our optional overhead Guard/Dust Collection Pick-Up when routing freehand or using bearing piloted bits.

Mounting Plate
The patented Woodhaven Mounting Plate comes with a blank insert...a 2" hole insert...a 1" hole insert with a 1-3/16" diameter bushing counterbore and a 1/2" diameter nylon starting pin.

Complete with instructions and mounting hole diagrams for 37 popular router motors.

The Plate is supported by four, Woodhaven Stay-True Plate Levelers™ that can be adjusted to provide snag-free gliding action.

Adjustable Fences
Each of the two rugged, extruded aluminum Fences mount quickly and independently with twin knobs to the T-Track in the top of your Pro Fence System Rip Fence.

Each Fence offers more than enough left/ right travel to provide the ideal bit clearance for optimal workpiece support...whether you're working with a 1/8" diameter straight bit or a giant, 3" or larger diameter panel-raising bit.

The in-out position of each fence half is controlled by turning a large, four-wing adjustment knob. Each 1/4-turn provides a precise, 1/128" of micro-adjustment.

Connect the vacuum port on either half of the fence to a 2-1/2" diameter hose for super-efficient dust-collection. A 2-1/2" elbow is included (and required) for attaching the hose to either of these ports. For even greater efficiency, order an additional, optional elbow and connect a Dust Collector hose to EACH fence end.

A shatter-resistant, see-through upper guard provides eye protection and helps seal off the gap between the two fences for added dust collection efficiency.
