Over the last fifteen years, we’ve heard from a good many of our customers about how they’d like to have the fine-tuning capabilities of the Micro Fence on other machines in their shop. We’ve developed the Micro Stop for that very purpose.
The Micro Stop sits on an aluminum plate that’s machined square and is pre-drilled for easy mounting (or clamping) to whatever surface you wish. This Micro Stop Basic unit comes packaged with 3″ shafts that allow 1 1/4″ of anvil movement with up to 1″ of micrometer travel. The anvil is pre-drilled and tapped (6-32 thread) in four locations to accept whatever secondary fence you’d like to attach.
Whether your application is as simple as adding the adjustability of the Micro Stop to a miter gauge cross-slide or whether you’re building your own version of a sophisticated router table, this component will improve its accuracy and performance.
Here are some pictures and a video of the Micro Stop in action from a customer named Brian Holcombe:
