« Part 5: Fine Tuning begins.... Part 6 of DIY Aluminum Extrusion Fence series no next part

so I got the left side of the saw sliding nicely – but the smallest cut I can take is 3 1/4 inches… well that’s not going to ‘cut it’. So, I moved the fence over to the right side of the table (it’s separated in two because there’s a blade guard assembly in the middle that I want to maintain use of). I get down to an inch and some cut there – just nothing finer than about 1 1/4 inches. I know there may be times I’ll want to do something smaller…but the question is do I change my workflow, or do I figure another way to mount the rail lower and shim the extrusion up high enough??

Can you attach a sacrificial fence to the front that is about 1 1/4” thick that will allow you to get close or at least have it available when you need to make narrow cuts.
