I just finished don 60 mortises on my FMT. I think most of the time was spent moving my stop bloks around. If I had something that would let me have multiple stops and just flip them out of the way when not in use I could have knocked 50% of the time off this particular task.

Does anyone know of anything available out there that would work?

Could you have grouped the tasks in such a fashion that you’d only minimally have to move blocks?

Spacer blocks are a great way to go if you label them. I have seen commercial back fences with tons of flip down stops on the internet, but the cost is steep.

I already know how to build one. I have a Kreg router table that has a fence with very nice flip stops. I just need to mount one of these to each outrigger then I need only buy flip stops as needed.

Kreg sells their components seperately also. Here is the link to their site.

Rockler also carries flip stops for t-track, which they have.
