Main body is a 1” dowel with a 1/4” hanger bolt screwed into the end of the dowel and glued. The arm is 3/4 baltic birch with the sides laminated in plastic from a clorox bottle (had to try it) a few washers and a lock nut to give it just enough tension to have it move freely but stay in position. A 1/4 inch bolt and 3 star knob hold it in position. Was a fun little project.

Nice work. Cool idea with the Clorox bottle.

Awesome. Just like a Rockler, with a lot more satisfaction. It cannot be emphasized enough how much that type of limiter works for making the science of exact length cutoffs a reality. Add enough of that type of helper to your work, and your work just improved by the sum of all such devices you add.

As mentioned, that Clorox fix is genius

Thanks a lot for the comment. It is true really helps keeps things during a project more precise. The clorox idea was more of an experiment that so far seems to be holding up. Thanks again for the comments and support
