I spent many, many years with 2 previous table saws both of which had terrible fences before I finally invested in a table saw with a good fence.

Router Depth Setter: Wood Router Jig for Setting Depth

This is a very quick and easy jig to make and is easy and quick to use. It will work for any router, provided the base can sit within the slots and that the router bit will drop drown on top of the depth gauge wood that you select. This jig will NOT work for router bits that have a bearing, but on some selected bits, it may be possible to drill holes in the depth gauge wood and still use this methodology.
