I posted a miter guage I built a few months ago. It got cut up pretty quickly and I thought I’d try something different. The stop block design comes from a Shop Notes Article. The fence itself is merely a 3” by 20” piece of 3/4” plywood. It is screwed to the cast iron gauge. The stop’s cool feature is that the stop flips out of the way by loosening the wing nut. This allows me to keep the stop on the guage (versus looking for it later) even when I don’t need it. The stop secures to the fence by friction. The knob tightens the sandpaper lined “grips” to keep it secure. I used some small walnut cutoffs for that. All has a poly finish and sliding parts have been waxed. Hopefully the stop will hold up so that I can jsut replace the fence from time to time.
