These low-profile work stops present a broad bearing surface. Particularly useful with thin or narrow workpieces, each 1 1/4" wide anodized aluminum rail projects just 0.22" above the bench top, allowing materials as thin as 1/4" to be worked or planed without obstruction. It also provides a reliable registration surface for materials too narrow to span two adjacent bench dogs.
The two steel posts slide along a T-track on the underside of the rail; versions are available with posts sized to fit 3/4" or 20mm diameter dog holes. The posts on the 9 3/4" stop can be spaced up to 9" apart (center to center); the posts on the 17 1/2" length can be spaced up to 16 3/4" apart. The posts of the 25 1/4" stop can be spaced up to 24 1/2" apart; at over two feet long, it will span the depths of most bench tops and can be cut shorter if desired.
For tasks that involve the application of horizontal force in one direction, such as planing, a single stop can be used with no additional clamping. Stops can also be placed perpendicular to one another to capture two edges of the workpiece to prevent rotation. A simple way to secure work without the constraints of typical clamping methods.
