For years I have screwed a piece of scrap wood to my table saw miter gauge for the immediate task at hand. I’d like to make a removable fence for long term use with flip stop. Ideally I’d like to be able to extend it to 36 inches.

Anyone have a good plan they’d like to share

Short of buying an “Incra mitre gauge” which is a little pricy but also the best I have ever seen, I guess I would think about purchasing some “T-Track, screwing that to your present mitre gauge and then add whatever sub-fence you care to use.

floridagramps,

Here are just 4 of the auxillery fences with stops right here on the LJ site, with credits to each builder.
I’m certain that you will find one to suit your needs or combine the features from all to achieve the fence you are looking for.

For future reference, when your shopping for ideas, type your item search into the ‘Search Window’ in the upper right hand corner of any ‘blog’ page, it’s titled “Search LumberJocks.com” and you will likely find any number of previously posted ‘shop made’ or ‘retail sites’ to help you out.
