Tabs on the fence stops.

Postby bbhack@Mac.com » Fri Dec 14, 2012 10:07 am

I'm curious about the intended function of the small rotating tabs on the back, bottom edge of both the black and blue fence stops. They could be useful to locate a beveled corner without damaging it. But that's the only thing I've come up with.

Regards,

Béla,

Welcome to the forum!

That little red tab is there for when you are using very thin stock; the corners of the stops are relieved to keep sawdust from building up and ruining the accuracy of the cut on thicker stock, but thinner stock will slip into the curve and your measurement would be off, so with thin stock, you loosen the screw a bit, swing the red tab down, re-tighten the screws and make your cut(s.)

Best,
Rutager
