Router Table Fence & Accessories
■ There isn't much hardware required for the router table fence on page 16.
T-Track - To add the accessories to the fence you'll need a piece of T-track. T-track isn't often available locally, so sources are listed in the margin.
Knobs - The only piece of hardware that might be difficult to find is the
knobs with built-in 5/ifi"T8 inserts. Sources for these knobs, as well as the through knobs, are listed in the margin.
Accessories - Instead of making a bit guard or featherboard, you can buy them from the sources in the margin. Because the sizes may vary, it's best to have them on hand before
■ If you have a garage or basement workshop, rust is a constant concern. Since you can't wrap your 1 tools up enough to keep the rust out, you'll have to deal with minimizing it and removing it.
The products mentioned in the cast iron article on page 32 go a long way toward winning the battle of rust. Each Sandflex block is made from a semi-flexible rubber with grit impregnated throughout the block. As you "erase"
away any rust, new particles are constantly being exposed — so it never clogs up. Sandflex blocks come in coarse, medium, and fine grits.
Once you have the rust removed, you can spray the surface with either TopCote or Boeshield T-9. Both products seal and protect the surface from rust while creating a smooth, slick surface.
Sources for the sanding blocks and the lubricants are listed in the margin.

aluminum angle products. Drill Bit-
Finally, for drilling the hole the fence for hooking up your dust hose, the margin sources carry large-diameter drill bits like the multi-spur bit shown above.
Small Parts Storage
■ About the only thing you'll need to complete the storage system on page 6 is a 2V8n-dia. bit to drill the holes in the inserts. The margin lists a few sources for large-diameter drill bits.
Metal Cases -One option for keeping small parts in place inside the drawers is to use watchmaker's cases (see photo). These glass-topped aluminum
containers come in five different sizes (IV4'1 diameter to 2V4"). They're available from Lee Valley. &
