attachment to a full fence and a adjustable (for length) European style...

 A couple questions, Stick. Use a 3/4" thick piece, or thicker? Stop it just before the back teeth?

2'' or more thicker and stop it a fuzz short of the front teeth...

Yeah, i figgered it should be thicker. Why the difference in placement, though?

a 4x4 works great....

What species do you recommend?  I don't have a jointer and I'm wondering if a lumber yard piece will be straight enough.

I've got some mdf laying around.  I don't like working with it because of the dust. Your thoughts?

I have a Delta Unifence that will slide front to back.   (It was before they started doing Beismeyer-style fences).

 

It works great this way.   Also flips so you can use it to trim off a top layer like veneer.   But it makes it difficult to make jigs to strattle the fence.
