Miter Saw Fence Stop

By: Logan Wittmer
Here's a Simple Stop Block that Knows when to Get out of the Way.

08 24 01 On a recent project, I wanted to make repetitive cuts on my miter saw. Because I didn’t have a fence for a stop block, I decided to use a simple piece of T-track to hold the stop block to my saw. 08 24 03 Sliding Block. My miter saw has holes drilled in the aluminum fence. It ended up being the perfect point to attach T-track to the saw using machine screws, as seen here. Then, I made a sliding stop block that I can position for repetitive cuts. The block is nothing more than a piece of plywood that has a groove and dado cut on the back side to accept hardwood keys. 08 24 05 The keys sit inside the T-track to hold the block at 90°. To cut long pieces without removing the stop block, I can loosen the knob and turn the block out of the way before tightening it back down (photo above).
