CMS-VL MFT/3 setup for a 3 1/2 in. cutter diam
« on: July 07, 2017, 12:04 PM »
The router table fence is to narrow to handle a raised panel bit with a cutter diam of 3 1/2 inches.  Is there a different setup or adjustment I can make to work with this bit?

If you mean that the fence will not open up wide enough, have a look at this which should start at the 8m44s point:

The fence is just about 1/8 inch to narrow.

If you mean the shroud, then you can either file it away, or for the simplest solution, just add a secondary fence.
