Telescopic Stop Block

Been away for some time now and trying to get back in the shop again so…

I did had a telescopic stop block on miter station fence but it was not a very good one and didn’t allow me thin stock, so I made a new one (nothing fancy) but accurate and allows me stock up to 3mm.
It’s a simple design I used before using a small C clamp, a piece of aluminum rod, a wingnut bold and a t-nut.
By rotating the rod it works on both sides of my miter saw.
When the rod is retracted, it sets behind the fine adjustment screws so it is not in the way.

Thanks for watching :)

Looks like a good device you have built there Stelios.
The DT3 award is definately in order, now a couple of questions on its operation
1. The index
I assume the index mark is from the veneer adjustment screws you have at either end if the main structure and the edge of the saw blade.
2. I assume again is NLT 140mm. Then if there is anything shorter needed then out comes the arm and the adjustment measurement is simply from the edge of the arm to the edge of the blade.
General comment
1. I see the hold down mount has been removed and a pencil has been stashed in its position! thats an excellent use for it. (No doubt this is why the DT3 award was made !!( joke))

2. I am still trying to figure out how you can get a “Quick Clamp” style of device in its place as its a pain to use then gets in the way on 45 deg tilt.

Nice idea Stelios. I’ll have to remember this and actually make it, next time I reach for a scrap block and spring clamp when I’m at the miter saw ;)

Hey Rob thank you for comments and questions.
I will try to answer you and if I misunderstood please forgive me (English not my first language) :)
The index is micro adjusted with the two screws left and right so that the top angle cuts point at a certain number and the screws correspond to that distance to the blade. The metal rod’s wooden block when retracted is always behind the screws and when is needed then of-course the distance is measured from the end of the block to the blade… so anything shorter than 26cm (on my miter saw table) out comes the telescopic extension.

The hold down is laying on top of the station, don’t use it much, but when is needed I do and YES short pencils on both sides always (keep loosing them all the time) :) hahahaha
So my hold down clamp it’s easy to use and not interfering when I cut miters.

Hope I have answered everything, if not please let me know.
Thank you for visiting and commenting Rob !!!
