Ueing the Stop

CLOSED

For the majority of cuts 1 make, I butt the stop (P) up against die clamp block 00 and lock it in place (see drawing at right).

To set up the slop for making accurate repeat cuts, start by loosening the plasrie knob that secu res the clamp block lo the fence. Then position the entire stop block assembly for the desired cut and lock il in place.

EXTENDED

To cut shorter work pieces, slide the stop assembly near the end of the rail and lock it in place (see drawing at right). Then loosen the threaded knob on top of the clamp block and extend the stop (I*) out for the desired cut.

Safety Note: To allow room lor you to hold the work-piece, the stop should always be at least 6" away from the blade.
