It is mainly for people with MFT and CMS-VL. I use it for routing, cutting and alike. If you ever had to use the stock CMS fence, you would understand a lot quicker!  ;)

Longtime lurker, I just bought the CMS-VL basic table, the Incra 25 Super System and the Precision Dog plate.

Concerned I'm going to want that sliding table and hose though...

I got the sliding table and Y hose at the time of purchase so I never knew better.

Enjoy the setup, I love mine almost 3 years later!!

Hi guys,

I have a LS positionner but the steel rule on it has zero on the right side.
If I put it on the left side, the numbers will be upside down.

I can't find a replacement metric steel rule that has the zero on the left side, how did you do ?

Hy, your ruler is right. If you position the fence against the blade, zero has to be under the hairlinecurser of the positionner.
now you can slide the fence away from the blade and reed the difference under the hairline. sorry for my bad english. :-[

You might be able to use the lexan ones

Yep thanks, I've seen them, but cannot source the steel version which would have been nice

Gonna drop an email to INCRA support and see what they say

Also, what is the maximum lenght can be cut with the LS positionner base set as far left as possible (with 2 las holes used) and the MFT rail in it's standard position (meaning not especially shifted to the right) ?

Starrett has English/Metric left to right in the USA.  Not sure about metric only.

I am not sure I understand the question. Do you mean the distance between the router bit (or saw blade) and the fence face?  If so, it is whatever LS positioner you have.

A LS 25 will give you about 24" from face to bit/blade. If you move the plate to the last set of holes you will have about 4 feet or so since you are taking the table length.

If you have multiple MFTs you could go back really far (not that it is a good thing!).

Hope this helps.

Cheers. Bryan.

What I mean is, say you have a stock MFT and install a LS positionner using that plate in the left-most position. What is the distance between the LS fence fully retracted and the cut ?

This distance should not depend on the the LS positionner

I will have to measure it when I am back in my shop.

Distance is just under a meter. Right around 90cm with the split fence in and would be at about 97cm without it.

Hope this helps.

So does Festool offer a way to buy most everything in included in the CMS-VL set <except> the fence?  That would make this a lot more appealing.  Don't really want to pay for two fences I don't think.  Their website seems to be non-functional when it comes to router tables right now, so I can't really check.

Is the idea here that the Incra LS or TS or whatever serves as a router table fence and acts as a accurate stop for repeatable cuts using the MFT rail?  Does the Incra fence MFT combo provide other functions as well?

Sorry for so many questions - thanks!
