JessEm Tool Co. JES-04500 TA Fence for Router Tables With Jointing Feature


A uniquely engineered router fence held to the toughest of tolerances ensuring long lasting precision and use. Time and again, the same old router fence “L” shape aluminum extrusion is used. The problem that manufacturers run into with this design is the twisting and warping that may occur when extruding a shape that long. This can be overcome with machining the part once it is cut; however, most router table fences on the market today skip this most important step. This is why JessEm’s TA Fence is incredibly unique and precise. We have extruded three distinct extrusions, which are cut on our cold saw and each machined to the tightest of tolerances, ensuring you have a perfectly square router table fence with no bends or twists. At the top of each fence is an easy to read 36in scale in both imperial and metric measurements. As well, the main fence components are all anodized to give you years of lasting use.

The TA Fence sub-fences are extruded from 6000 series aluminum. They are then cut on our cold saw and each sub-fence is machined independently to the highest degree of accuracy. They are then “hard” anodized for that long lasting durability. Both sub-fences are independently adjustable to handle different size router bits including the large raised panel bits.

The TA Fence gives the woodworker an exceptionally simplified way to do your jointing operations. No need to mess around with shimming bars, or plastic shims. With the TA Fence adjusting your outfeed fence is as simple as loosening two knobs, turning the knurled dial at the back of your fence. Adjustments from 0 to 1/4in are easily made. The adjustment module is precisely laser engraved and each revolution of the dial is equal to 1/16in adjustment to your outfeed fence. Retighten the knobs and you are ready to go, quick and easy.

All of the adjustment knobs are precision machined with convenient knurls from either 303 Stainless Steel or 6000 series anodized aluminum. The TA Fence hold down knobs, are neatly mounted in anodized aluminum mounts with a stainless steel retainer, allowing for effortless adjustments. As well, the hold-down knobs are fixed into the retainer so the knobs stay fixed even when the fence is removed from the table. The TA Fence adjustment knobs; as well, are machined from stainless steel and mounted to an aluminum anodized mount for quick, no hassle adjustments.

The TA Fence Guard is not your average bit guard. JessEm has designed this unique bit guard, not only to adjust the height for varying sized bits, but to also adjust the depth when routing away from your fence. With a simple turn of the knurled stainless steel hold down knob, adjust the depth to cover your bit and retighten the knob.

The right and left TA Fence Tracks are extruded from 6000 series aluminum and machined on one of our CNC mills. Each track has a front and back cover so there is no dust collection buildup within the tracks. Each track has its own linear scale in both imperial and metric measurements.

The TA Fence comes with our standard 2-1/2in O.D. x 2-1/4in I.D., PVC 45° angle vacuum port.
