|The Micro Fence® System has been developed by noted woodworker Richard Wedler, who has been making custom cabinets and furniture for over 40 years. The first foundation piece of the system, the Edge-Guide, was the solution to straight-line and circular routing application problems that Richard confronted in his own commissioned work. He and his father Jack, a machinist and toolmaker for over 60 years, put their heads together to develop the first Micro Fence® Edge-Guide. |

the Micro Fence Edge-Guide
Although Jack passed away in 1998 Rich has continued the
development of the Micro Fence® System to include the Plunge Base, Circle Jigs, Ellipse Jigs, the Micro Stop, Vacuum Clamping equipment and a host of other
accessories. The goal has always been to build the highest quality and
most useful tools possible that offer solutions to woodworking problems. We are constantly researching and developing new products to make Microfence.com the most valuable resource possible for precision woodworking tools.
When you call our shop, you'll speak with Rich or daughters Dara or Carey who help out frequently in the office, any of whom are happy to answer any of your questions.
