Fence/Stops are useful for holding the workpiece securely in place on the table.
The acrylic Fence/Stops holds your workpiece at the edge of the table for mortising. It can also be used as a stop to index multiple pieces so your mortise will be in the exactly the same position on each piece. The acrylic Fence/Stops are sold in pairs and one set comes with each of our PantoPackages.
The Fence/Stop ProPack has one pair of aluminum angles with ratchet-action lever knobs for use on the table top and one set of acrylic stops with smaller knobs for use on the table front when mortising. The Centering Scale Fence replaces the ProPack so both are generally not necessary.
Fence/Stops are very useful to hold your workpiece securely aligned with your router bit. They make repeating cuts with deadly accuracy possible, and work best with lever clamps to hold the workpiece solidly to the table.
They ratchet-action lever handle Fence/Stops are best used on the tabletop and the wing-knob Fence/Stops are best used on the front of the table to hold a workpiece when mortising.
Our Fence/Stop ProPack has one pair of each style for both mortise and tenon and a wide variety of other joinery operations.
