"Hi Tom, I have the Vega 40 Pro and everytime I measure fence to blade and then lock down the fence kicks into square position which is good, but then measurement is wrong. Any fix or do I just have to always use the scale on the tube?"

"Rich, The dust port on the fence does not remove dust from inside the cabinet so you need a dust port for the cabinet as well"

Hi Thom,

You know after seeing your video on the Kreg router cabinet I made one (with your video help) It came out great! Then you recorded the Vega Pro 40 fence video. My Craftsman saw was begging for a new fence so I bought the Vega 40 and watched your video as I installed it. fantastic fence and now I'm trying to decide what material I want to bolt on to the fence face instead of the existing steel. Thanks for your help Thom, I'll keep checking in to see what's next!

Hank
