Here are a few pictures of the incra fence attachment. Forgot to take pics of the spacer...

Sorry about picture orientation.

Made it so the incra rail tops are even with the sliding rail tops.
I found that playing cards are really good shims (pre-waxed)
I had to shim the sliding rails where they tighten to the bracket.

To make the fence even with the sliding rail tops I had to reverse the mount used for the positioner.
I found that I could just mount it as pictured and not have to change any hardware or drill new holes.

Probably the only downside of this setup is removing the fence. You have to loosen four knobs and pull it up evenly.
The fence to rail lock-downs are a little stubborn sometimes.

One last thing, I use the bridge on the edge of my power bench, and the incra positioner is designed to have 32" travel.
With the 10" spacer I have 0-42" of travel because the fence never gets closer than 10" to the cutline and I can cut with or without the 10" spacer.
