« Part 19: Ridgid R4512 Zero Clearance Insert Part 20 of Building the Shop series Part 21: Mallet made of scraps / Laguna BS Update »

My wife was off this weekend so I didn’t spend to much time in the shop and I really didn’t have a game plan on what and how I wanted to make the table. I know in the future I want to install the Kreg Flip stops on my miter station so I decided to get the same T-track for the drill press table, that way the stops work through out my shop. I also plan to use the same T-Tracks on my super sled I plan to build in the near future.

I’ll finish it up tomorrow/this week, I need to get more hardware, I made 4 trips the get hardware within 2 days, I hate doing this, but I do it every time! lol

Nice table. How do you rate the Kreg swing stop? Do you find it accurate enough for repeated cuts?

Yes, the Kreg system is accurate, but it comes with a larger price tag.
