Festool stop flag / fence stops DIY
usefull on all T-tracks.

I got tired of moving my fence stop from the table saw to the MFT3 table and was about to order a fence stop the other day. But…, I decided to try and make one my self instead, why not… It will be fun to try, I got plenty of time, to fool around. Smiles.

This post is from the blog:

The final version, of plywood Festool flag stop, here on the low fence.

1. The fence stop set.
2. Fence stop up.
3. The making.
4. The making.
5. Another version.
6. One more…

Hope it can be to some inspiration, otherwise just stop now…

Square to the fence, and 2 points of attachment to eliminate twisting are what the Doctor ordered, looks like you have filled the prescription.

Nice job.

Stellar job on making the stops for the fence….Clever idea….I would have tried to make something like this, but when I bought my Kreg Top tracks for the fences, I also bought both kinds of Kreg stops and the left and right tapes.

Great flip stop MaFe! This was going to be one of my future projects.
I like how you solved all the mechanical challenges of this build.

I’ll post my version after I’m finished building my current project.

Hi guys’n girls,
James E McIntyre, Thank you, it was great fun finding ways. Look forward to see what you come up with.
Rick Dennington, Smiles thanks. I build a lot I don’t need, just for the fun of it. ;-D
therealSteveN, My girlfriend is a doctor, her order is just enjoy. :-D Thank you, yes it needed to be sturdy. A bigger washer between the runner and the flag, will make it even more sturdy.
lew, Smiles and thanks Lew. ;-)
swirt, dhoooo me, yeas sure, dude… Laugh, Thank you.
Redoak49, go for it, it’s not difficult at all. Always happy when projects can inspire.
