I will try this tomorrow and take some photos if anyone thinks ti is needed.
yes some photos, it's a good idea

else (see the link), an idea to fix the piece (fence at left with a T-slot) with the veritas bench blade

My incra-jig with fence is clamped to the table and I used QWAS dogs to align the fence to the holes. The incra-jig was fully extended and zeroed.

Another view of the clamps

Just another view of the dogs registering the fence

A subfence wider than the saw rail is attached to the incra-jig with double stick tape or hot-melt glue, but I use tape.

The rail is lowered to show the overhang.

the overhang is cut off with the saw and the subfence is now zeroed to the saw blade.

A quarter inch rip that I made.

As you can see, whatever the incra-jig is set to is what you will cut

I have used the incra positioner (aluminum one) in a similar fashion before.  The only difference with Boatman's jig is that the aluminum fence is taller and therefore you have to provide a spacer between the edge of the guiderail and the incra fence otherwise the TS will hit the fence.   I have the pics, but unfortunately the FOG and my laptop are in a hate hate relationship when trying to load pictures.

ok thanks, i understand
so, you don't fix your pieces when you rip ; there are stuck in the corner (mft's fence and subfence) ; and nothing move ?
don't hesitate to correct my english mistakes

10 years have passed since the original posting and surprisingly there's still no solution from Festool or other vendors.  A right-side fence would be very useful for repeatable cuts of thin strips.  (For example, 1 or 2 cm width.)  I don't need a 24 inch fence hanging off the right side.  A 6 inch fence would be sufficient.  The closest solution I can find is the following:

Unfortunately, it doesn't have flag stops.
