Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

try putting a slot in the front face. you can then add adjustable length stops. I also have constructed a right angle jig that I attach to mine and use to cut tenons. It works nearly as well as the expensive cast iron ones and attaches in seconds with two t bolts. I also have made a couple of jigs to cut wheel treads on toy wheels that connect to the fence with t bolts. there are endless ways to use this setup to make repeat cuts thru a wide range on angles and hold small pieces securely and keep those fingers away.
