I've been fooling around with a scatch build
of a D&WRG caboose in 1/20.3 scale. This scale
takes very large wood strips and I needed a way
to micro adjust my fence to make fine cuts.
I used my Balsawood strip cutter to make the
adjustments on my fence by removing the blade and
inserting a strait edge.



Hope this is useful.

Is this an adjustable stop? Will it be used with a mitre gauge to cross cut strip wood to length?

I saw a similar idea on a PBS wood working show this morning. I believe they had a mitre gauge with an extended
Fence and a wood block clamped to it as a stop. They used a screw in the block to move the work piece in either direction with micro movements. I think the idea of using a threaded screw to make small adjustments is a good one. Another idea is to add or remove shims between the work piece and the stop block.

I also noted that you placed your stop ahead of the saw blade. That is a good idea also, since it prevents jam ups or
Potential kick backs

Glad you posted this idea.

I've looked at this a couple times and don't quite understand how it works. Could you show a piece of wood in place?

I also don't "get it". I would use a much finer saw blade for stripwood. Those coarse teeth will hack the thin pieces to death.

Sorry about the confusion, I should
have set the adjuster clamped to the
table saw behind the fence. You could
now creep up on the blade. As for the
blade, I have a fine tooth blade for
ripping strip but since I am building
a large scale caboose I left that blade
in.
Hope this clears things up.

been working on a large scale

much larger.
