I am looking to get some opinions on the best way to setup a stop block system for my miter saw stand that will hold up to light production usage and be the most accurate. Currently I have a Kreg track with the flip arm stop on both wings of my miter saw stand, and the only problem is that I keep wearing out the knob on the Kreg flip stop roughly every couple of months. I have tried the Grizzly stop block system and didn’t much like it either. I would love to have the Fast Cap system but honestly right now that is a little bit out of my budget, however, if you guys think that it would be the best, I might splurge and try to get it. Suggestions?

(I know that this post might be best suited for the jigs & fixtures forum, but I figured I would get more responses here)

If you could find one of the older beisemeyer fence stops you’d be in heaven.

That looks a lot like the Grizzly stop block that I used in the past. Only the Grizzly didn’t have that nice arm/fence feature. Where can these be purchased? Do they still continue to make and sell these?

87 bucks for a flip stop? Really?

I don’t think you need one at all.

Just mark, make a cut, leave the board in place and clamp on a block of wood to the fence….....

I think I can do that just as fast and accurately.

Have your say...
