If I had two positioners, (I have the Incra LS in Imperial now) I would dismount/remount. I'd split the difference between the two, and have them both available so I could clamp down the LS clamp for which ever I wanted to use. Leaving the one not in use free to slide.

Oh yeah, I guess that would work too! I'd just have twice as many things to check when I go to move the fence and can't figure out why it won't move... ;)


I'm not sure that I'd want that much extra mass though when it comes time to dismount for crosscutting. Also, my router table is under the bridge for the clamp, since my table saw service door is on the left, thus I have to dismount the Positioner for table routing as well, remounting for fence routing by flipping it 180 or dismounting all together for some operations.

Sounds like you have the same setup as me. The difference is that when I want to use my router, I simply unclamp the bridge and slide it further to the right on the rails, to where I have two fixed stops. This realigns it out of the way of the router table and allows me to use it for routing (or larger TS cuts). I do my crosscuts on the Sliding table mounted to the left of the blade.

Will post a picture of that.

Here's my setup. In the second image you can see my fixed stops that move the bridge to an indexed location.

@fritter63 You've got an older LS positioner. looks like it's doing great! You've also got miles of room in comparison. I dont have as much room to hang my positioner that far right. I wish I did. Someday, next house/shop.
