    Cutting Thin stock with rip fence

    Most of the time it is not an issue cutting thin stock on my table saw useing the rip fence. But every once in a while I cut a piece that is so thin that it wants to slide uner the fence.

    But some times when you get to the place on the table that is in open space it will slip under the fence.

    This has stoped the problem. The hold down clamps from Rockler work very well

    Just a 3/4 piece of plywood with a 1/8 piece of masonite attached to the bottom. Works great for laminates as well as door skin material.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Very good idea Ron. So it acts as a "shelf" or small lip to keep the end of the panel level with the table top. The nice thing about the Rockler Fence Clamps is their ability to allow the fence up and down adjustment.
