MFT story fence
« on: April 15, 2018, 07:06 PM »
Sometimes I wanted to repeatedly cut to a couple of different dimensions, but not necessarily a given dimension all at the same time. By adding one or two more side stops to the fence, I have created a 'story fence' and can quickly flip down the appropriate stop, without having to re-set anything.

The only limitation is the width of each stop stops you having two too close.

If you need two close together, I think I have seen the stop installed "backwards" with the flag reversed so it falls right.  That means getting two flags within a half inch of each other.  Could potentially make it closer if you change the socket head caps to button heads ...

Also, this is a *great* idea.

If you need to go out farther the UG wings fit the MFT 3.

I only have 2 but more useful was adding some tape to the fence calibrated to the rail. No more measuring so no more errors.
