So i guess I’ll call it the Ultimate flip up stop since it’s going on my Ultimate crosscut fence from my previous project. I used 3/4” Hard maple stock, 2 T-Track knobs, 1/4” threaded machine screw and 4” L-shape steel bracket. The reason for thwo T-track knobs is because when I used only one it wasn’t stable enough for me to fork with it, once I added the second one it was dead on accurate. Also the reason for the notch on the side of the stop is for the easy isers for the second T-track knob, I call it “QUICK REALEASE KNOB” its great because if I want to keep it in place for repeaded cuts I can leave it there and if I want to meve it to flip the stop up and out of the way , just simply loosen it up end slide to the side and it’s released to flip up. Also I mounted the L shaped blacket 1/8” of the table saw for dust release.

Hope you guys like this, and there is more accessories coming up for this Fence

Nice job Tomas. Can you give a bit of detail as to the hardware used? Looks like bolt/washer, washer in between, and washer/nut on the outside. Is that correct? I made a stop similar and found too much play like you did but didn’t think to add e second knob, nice job. Alternately I suppose you can add a key dadoed I to the flip portion to help lock it in place in the track. May give that a try.
