I tried to keep this as simple as possible. The piece that goes into the miter stop stays put by friction. I used a longer bolt than necessary so that when you tighten the nut, you can hold the end of the bolt to keep it from spinning. I made the slot for adjusting the thickness of the cut by securely clamping the piece of wood to the table and raising the blade, much like making a zero clearance insert. I had a bearing a a rod that fit snugly inside it, so i used them.

Nice one! Will it also work on a bandsaw for cutting veneers?

Very nice idea. Along with a zero clearance plate you are off to the races.

Looks neat. I’ve wished for something like this in the past.

I still don’t quite understand how it works on the TS though…

I like the Freudian slip about the “miter slop” too! On our Ridgid TS, that’s quite appropriate.
