Here is an accessory that I made to improve my miter gauge. It helps considerably to hold the work secure when crosscutting. This little improvement has helped me, and so I thought that posting it might be useful to others.
I used a piece of MDF and cut slots for my stop block. On the back (picture 3), I put a slot for my stop block when I’m not using it. I also put some anti-skid sandpaper on the face of it to keep things from moving when I’m crosscutting (Niki gets credit for that idea). This is a revision of a plan I found in one of my magazines. The bit can be purchased from Woodhaven or MLCS. I like the t-slots better than using t-track for this application.
