INCRA Fence Positioner replacement

#18872 by james.miller » Sat Jun 28, 2008 10:33 pm

Does anyone know if the new Incra Fence Positioner will replace the old style one used on the Ultra Fence?

It would be nice to have the newer technology of a lead screw.

The newer style has been around for a couple of years now.

Like you, I wished they had changed it before I bought my system. So far I haven't read anything about Shopsmith swapping out the old ones for the newer one.

I think Incra still offers the older style for sale, and will need to retool the system so the newer positioner will work on a Shopsmith. That, and they probably won't change it until they run out of the older style they still have on the shelves for the Shopsmith.

Is the problem in the way the positioner attaches to the fence or the way it attaches to the table?

Does everyone who uses this have their tables drilled to mount the positioner?

Whatever the problem, the new positioner sure looks neat. Incra was always excellent but "they have come a long way baby". I have one of the real early model Incra that I purchased when I lived in Allen, TX.

It should mount to the fence but I don't know about it mounting to the small base that mounts to the table.
