    sliding compound miter saw fences

    I have a 10" Hitachi SCMS and a Delta Universal saw stand. I want to use a fence system for reliable repetitive cuts. Flip stops would be nice.

    I am seriously considering the Kreg system but note that some extra fabrication will be required. But that seems to be the case in any event.

    So tell me what kind of fence systems you are using with your SCMS and what do you recommend? Also would appreciate knowing what to avoid! Thanks.

    BTW, pictures would even be greater!

    if you are looking at a permanent stand carol i have the kreg flip stops on both the radial arm bench and the chop saw outfeed tables.. look at my shop thread some time back and you can see what i have..also i would suggest that you have it at a level where you can see where your cutting..i know i can measure and set the stop and be fine but fo rthe cuts that you arent sure or are only making one cut you dont set up the flip stop for it..you bend over look at the line and drop the saw to it and then hit the trigger.. so you need to have the height at a good eye level.. in my opinion and my hieght willdiffer from yours

    Shop notes has an interesting setup in their latest.

    I've got mine on a portable stand. I attached a piece of square aluminum tubing to mine, put an an adhesive backed tape measure on it and made a little sliding wooden block. Works great for repeat cuts...

    I use a clamp and hunk of 2x4. Not quite as fancy as Chuck's set-up.

    Mines like Chuck's only green instead of orange.
