About

The Micro Fence® System has been developed by noted woodworker Richard Wedler, who has been making custom cabinets and furniture for almost 50 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 in 1992 to develop the first Micro Fence®Edge-Guide. In 2011 Micro Fence won the AWFS Sequoia Award for it’s Plunge Base and Edge Guide combination, recognizing it’s innovative benefit to routing.

“It didn’t take me long to be convinced that here was a system that extends the potential of the router into realms of accuracy and control that the machine rightfully demands. It will make your use of the router so much easier and more enjoyable and it will extend options for the development of your skills and expertise.” – Robert Ingham, Furniture and Cabinetmaking Magazine, UK
