Mitre Guide Sacrificial Fence
I was wondering who else does this, the sacrificial part of my mitre fence gets chewed up, and shorter over time, I like to have a backing to prevent blow out on most cuts, so I make a few at one time when it is time.
Mine are made from 18mm thick MDF cut 70mm tall and 450mm long, YMMV
I counter sink a few holes for the bolts that hold them in place on the mitre guide, so I use the old piece to line up my fence on the drill press, then drill away.....
I use the same set up to drill the hole for the bolt to go through, sometimes I put four holes in the piece, sometimes three.
I then put a strip of PSA #240 sandpaper along the edges, this time I was running low on such sandpaper so I only did one edge on two of the pieces.
You can see the chewed up piece there too. I then label them as Mitre Guide and stow them under the SawStop.
Is there some other way to do these? This has worked for me, but I was thinking that the brain trust here might have some better method.
