Finally the new integrated fence flipper is built and filmed. Works extremely well and is super fast to use.

Nice update on the fence... [smile]  That's a pretty slick solution.

I'm just now seeing this thread.  This is absolutely brilliant, IMO.  Not sure why some manufacturer has not called him and put together another 'Peter Parfitt success' story.

Ola, is there an reason for using the threaded inserts for the fence and not using the dovetail tracks to clamp the fence in position.

It looks to me like there would be a greater range of adjustment using the dovetail tracks but maybe that's not needed.

I built the MicroJig 360 sled which also uses dovetail tracks for their clamps. If anyone is wondering the Festool and Bessy clamps fit in the MicroJig dovetail tracks.

My first version of this jig, built some four years ago, hade through holes for the clamps holding the wood, mft style. To make a long story short, from usability point the elongated holes and threaded inserts at that time was a better option as clamping the fence in through holes required both hands on the clamp = No hands left to hold the fence in position while clamping. Also think I only owned two rail clamps att that time [smile]

With the current design with routed t-tracks it would work well to clamp the fence in the tracks as that can be done with one hand. Although I think the threaded inserts make it a "cleaner" solution with less protruding parts. Adjustment range is more than enough for my usage, and of more is needed I would add another pair of inserts.

I just wanted to resurrect this old thread and thank Ola C for a great jig.
I made it basically the same but used dovetail slots and Microjig's dovetail clamps which were gathering dust in a drawer as I've never had a need to use them until now. If I'd had some T Track on hand I would have used them instead as I have plenty of T Tracks clamps with the added advantage of swiveling at 360 deg so you don't need as many slots and they have auto adjust mechanisms Tried a few test joints including face frames and miters and they were all perfect. I've decided to use memory sticks in the short term instead of Ola's brilliant rod solution which I think works better with the pins than the paddles. Made about 12 sticks which should cover most of the joints that I do. Thanks again. As they say in my country "Your blood's worth bottling"
