Thanks for posting (and reminding me that I have such a set on the shelve, waiting for the exact same application).

Thanks for sharing.  Other than what comes with the Wixey gauge, what additional hardware did you need? 

Is the hole in the CMS table tapped from the bottom or a through hole with a countersink from the top?

I used a small bolt from my collection for the upper connection using the existing hole in the “catcher” that holds the router down.

Plus some small washers for the angle piece as I did not have a bottom tap yet to establish screw threads all the way down in the hole (used provided screw (a PItA) to create screw threads). Proper drill is included. Lots of “meat” in this area. Not necessary to drill a through hole....
