Joe…...I understand what you are saying but I think you are not understanding what I am saying. The problem is that there is NOT a right and left stop. They are both identical and can only be used as a stop on the right hand side of the blade. If you use it that way, once the piece is cut throuth it is still against the blade and also against the stop. Yes. I purchased a length of their T-track and the little plastic retainer that should fit between the shoulders of the T-stop slot to keep the flip stop from pivoting, will not fit into the opening of their T-tracks.

Regarding routing stopped dados or slots…..again, there is no left and right Flip Stop. They are both identical. I have made many stopped dados and always use stop blocks with clamps. The key is that there is not a right and a lift. Sorry you are not understanding me, but I appreciate your input.
