OTORO Adjustable Fence

This fence with its fine adjustment will hugely ease your workload both on the shopfloor and on site. It is based on the ProGrip Straight Edge Clamp and Tool Guide and as such is quickly and securely clamped to any working surface by means of a cam lever. Attaching the two-part set of profiles provides stepless micro-positioning, allowing handheld circular saws or handheld routers to be employed with great precision.

Previously with a ProGrip clamp, when you had to readjust the position for, say, taking a cut with a circular saw, you had to loosen the cam lever of the clamp, realign everything and fix the clamp at its new position. It took a lot of skill (and possibly a bit of luck) to take an accurate cut every time. With this fence from OTORO, the ProGrip clamp stays put when you reposition the fence. All you move is the red part of the fence. You loosen the two thumbscrews and then shift the movable profile, in parallel to the fixed profile, along a diagonal line of contact having a ratio of 10:1. The lateral adjustment is easily read off the built-in scale, where each division represents an adjustment of 1/10 mm. This is an errorproof method for achieving the largest possible accuracy, not only when working with handheld circular saws and routers, but also with bench drills.

function You can also use this highly adjustable fence for precise milling and routing when working with OTORO T-tracks. You can make final adjustments even while machining.

The secret is the 10:1 parallel shift.
Whenever you slide the movable red profile by, say, 10 mm to the left or right, the fence is shifted sideways by 1 mm. The fence is infinitely adjustable. The scales are graduated in mm and inches. The maximum positioning range is 15 mm.

Manufactured from aluminium, the fences are genuine lightweights. The 3-stage contact pressure of the cam lever is very high at the third stage. Both fences are 120 mm wide and just 18 mm high.
