Miter Saw Fence and Kreg Stop Block Track System

I’m on a quest to create the perfect miter saw stand, and this week’s project got me one step closer! I built an extended miter saw fence and side supports to make handling long pieces of lumber a breeze. And the Kreg Stop Trak I added to the fence is a dream come true when it comes to making multiple cuts. Let’s get building!

My miter saw stand is already looking pretty good. It has plenty of storage underneath, thanks to the custom shelves I installed. Now I want to boost the productivity of the miter saw itself!

There are several different ways to add a stop block to your miter saw set up. You don’t even need a stand to use one! I go into more detail about the different types of miter saw stop block systems here.

Miter Saw Fence and Supports

Don’t forget your safety gear when woodworking! Here are my recommendations for safety glasses and ear protection. No excuses!

If you are planning to use the Kreg Trak and Stops kit, you’ll need to do a bit of math before you start building. The miter saw fence needs to be 2 ¼” taller than the tabletop, which should be the same height as your miter saw. If that didn’t make sense, this diagram from Kreg Tool should help!

The Kreg Trak comes in 2 foot lengths, and my miter saw stand is 6 feet long. If I position my miter saw in the center of the stand, I have about 25″ on either side. Perfect! Attach your miter saw to the bench with large screws or carriage bolts.

My Ryobi 12″ miter saw is 3 ½” tall, so the extended fence needed to be 5 ¾”. Your miter saw might be different, so measure accordingly! I cut a strip of ¾” plywood to that width with my table saw, then cut it into two 25″ pieces.

This little bump in the side of the miter saw made a gap between two fences. I cut a notch to fit around it so they sit a bit closer.

Drill holes along one edge of the fence pieces and line it up with the fence on your miter saw.

It’s really important to make sure that your extended fence aligns perfectly with your miter saw fence. I clamped a long level to both fences, then screwed it into place.

Now it’s time for some more math! Take the height of your miter saw, and subtract the thickness of the plywood you’re using for the top. Every 16th of an inch counts! My plywood was actually 11/16″, so I had to cut all my supports again when the top didn’t line up with the miter saw base perfectly!

Next, measure the distance from the fence to the front of the miter saw bench. Mine is 14 ¾”. Make sure to take into account the angles your miter saw can cut. Mine can go beyond 45 degrees to the right, but not the left. I cut four pieces at 14 ¾”, one piece at 5 ½” and another at 7″. Drill holes along one side and attach to the miter saw bench.

Cut the plywood top to fit each side. Mine are 25″ in the back, then angled to accommodate the swing of the miter saw arm.

Nail the top to the supports with brad nails. I love my Ryobi Airstrike brad nailer for this step!

If you just wanted additional support and a longer fence for your miter saw, you’re done at this point! Load up the gap underneath with storage containers like this one. It fits perfectly, and is great for all those random screws and bits laying around the workshop!

But if you want to get the most out of your miter saw stand, I highly recommend the Kreg Trak and Stop kit. Before installing mine, I would get so frustrated when I made multiple cuts that weren’t quite identical. Now I can whip out a stack of pieces that are exactly the same length without having to hunt down my tape measure once!

How to Install the Kreg Stop block track kit

Start by preparing the top track for installation. For some reason, it doesn’t come with pre-drilled holes in the metal. I clamped each piece to a sacrificial board and drilled four holes along this line.

Then attach the top track to the back of your new fence with the included screws.

Next, you need to calibrate the tape measure that will adhere to the top of the track. Cut a piece of scrap wood exactly two feet long, then butt one end of the board right up to your saw blade. Make a mark on the track at the other end, using a square to ensure accuracy.

Now here’s the part that I couldn’t wrap my head around at first. Align the adhesive measuring tape with the line you made on the track at 24 ⅜”, not 24″. Crazy, right? Well, the stops have a cursor that is offset by ⅜”. So the cursor is measuring the end of the stop, not its own location on the fence.

Trust me, it works! Here’s that two foot long board again, with one end against the saw blade and the other at the stop. The red line is on the 24″ mark.

Once the cursor is calibrated, screw it down and don’t move it again. You can make another test cut with the stop block at a shorter length just to see if it’s accurate.

Now you can set the stops to whatever dimension your woodworking plans require! I prefer to use the production stop for most of my repetitive cuts because it stays in place better than the swing stop.

The swing stop is mostly used for holding the board in place while making the cut. But it also has the cursor in case I need to measure from the left hand side.

I can’t wait to start using my miter saw stand on a new project! I’m already feeling so much more productive in my workshop, and I have a few more ideas to make it even more functional.

Let customers speak for us

I was very pleased with my purchase of 4 Harvey machines. Everything arrived without a scratch, the packaging is well engineered. All the assembly was straightforward and the quality of the parts, assemblies and accessories is first rate. I configured the tablesaw the way I wanted with an overhead guard and dust system (the shark), sliding table and rear table. I was pleasantly surprised to see that all the mounting holes were already there for my accessories. Even the fence rails came drilled for my choice of configuration. No drilling required. The miter gauge is the best I’ve ever owned. The bandsaw works great, even resawing thin strips from 5″ stock. The shaper is a great buy as well, all accessories included for shaper cutters, router bits, etc. The fence and the guards are easy to precisely adjust and my G700 dust processor is amazing. No more all day clean-ups! I’m picking up my lumber to start my boatbuilding project next week. Can’t wait to get started!

Bandsaw seems well built. Like the coated. Table adj screws are a bit of a pain as levers can’t rotate 360,knobs might be better choice. Time will tell after getting setup. Customer service has been great. No long hold and you talk to a person.

Over all, this is truly a fine saw. Solid as a rock and powerful. Two issues that have risen. There is no place on the saw to store the wonderful crosscut tool. It is large and very well made but I am going to have to make a storage rack for it on my wall. Additionally, the attachment with the line to establish rip width won’t lock and keeps moving. I am sure this can be replaced by the company although I haven’t called them yet. So far their customer service has been excellent so I expect this will be solved rapidly with minimal stress.

this is an excellent dust system! Much better fit and finish than expected. I’m very satisfied with the performance. Two improvements would make this outstanding. Put the power switch on the same side as the controls and make the remote able to adjust the fan speed. Thanks for a fine product. Wayne

As usual the Harvey Woodworking equipment is well thought out, well made and priced to sell. The features and function of this miter guage are far above any other miter guage available. Stock guages from Powermatic, Jet or others are far below the quality, utility and function of Harvey Woodworking tools. Across the board.

This tool is of supreme quality. All parts are manufactured well and of very heavy grade materials. Above and beyond the likes of powermatic, jet, laguna etc. I have a full compliment of excellent equipment from those makers and the Harvey brand stands out among them as being above and beyond. Next stop– Harvey Alpha tablesaws.

The SHARK S-12S is a sturdy and impressive tool that effectively reduces dust accumulation. Its swiveling feature and movable guard unit make it user-friendly, although the frame and wheel may limit visibility under the dust shroud. However, this is not a deal-breaker, as you can adjust to viewing from the side of the transparent shield. Speaking of the shield, it has saved me during one of my projects when a kickback occurred while cutting maple. The Shark S-12S took the brunt of it, and I wasn’t injured. Upon close inspection, there was no noticeable damage to the Shark S-12S from the kickback.

I have an older 2hp dust collector that efficiently handles the dust produced by my table saw. However, I hope to upgrade to the Harvey GYRO AIR G-700 someday to complement the Shark S-12S system.

I also own a Harvey Alpha Table Saw equipped with a 32″ INCRA TS-LS Rip Fence System. To mount the Shark S-12S onto the fence, I had to devise a secure and functional mounting solution that did not require drilling into the Incra. Fortunately, I found an alternative solution that did not compromise the integrity of the Incra.

Despite its limitations, the Shark S-12S is an excellent investment that outperforms the original dust guard. It reduces the amount of dust in the air and protects against kickbacks, making it a worthwhile purchase.

The slide saw attachment works amazing. It makes your table saw so much more versatile. Well worth the price. Just wish I bought it sooner.

The table saw is a most welcome upgrade and I wish I’d done it sooner. Some particular features I like is this effortless nature of the motor, cutting through oak and walnut with no strain. The fence. for me. is an exceptionally important part of any table saw and the ability to adjust it, and to be certain it isn’t moving under the stress of forces is critical. This saw was clearly made with delicate as well thick lumber in mind. The fence moves back also to allow for larger pieces and it has a view finder measurement for the fence in the high or low position which is exquisite. Having a machine that allows calibration every now and then on almost all aspects from the fence to the riving knife is very welcome. Precision means saving time and not wasting material. For the work I do precision is critical and this saw saves me wasted material and gives precision cuts the first time. I’ll probably buy another one next year. When dealing with materials in excess of 8 feet, only precision is acceptable.

After doing a lot of research and saving, I decided to go with Harvey. I waited for a sale and have no regrets. This saw has power, is accurate, and has a great fence. Super easy to set up. Thanks for a great product!

Table Saw Rip Fence: What Is It And How To Use It? (Beginner’s Guide)

For many woodworkers, the table saw is their go-to power tool for cuts. You will be hard-pressed to find another saw in your shop with as much accuracy. The table saw fence allows you to perform clean rip cuts, but new woodworkers may not completely understand this important table saw component.

miter, fence, kreg, stop, block

How do you align it? How is it used? What should you look for when shopping for one?

I have learned some things along my woodworking journey that I want to share with you. What follows is all you need to know about table saw rip fences.

What Is A Table Saw Rip Fence?

A table saw fence, also called a rip fence, is one of those essential table saw accessories that aid you in making accurate cuts. It sits to the right of the table saw blade and is used to keep your board in place as you make a rip cut along the grain. The rip fence is not for cross-cut alignment (you will use the miter gauge for cross-cutting boards).

A table saw rip fence support surface runs parallel to the table saw blade. The front end of the fence rests near you as you operate the table saw, while the back end rests near the outfeed table (if you have one).

You use the distance markers along the tabletop front edge to set the gap between the fence edge and saw blade edge. A locking mechanism keeps the fence in place once aligned.

The workpiece is guided through the cut by keeping it against the fence.

How Do You Align A Rip Fence?

For your rip fence to work correctly, you must align it with your table saw blade. A slight misalignment can create off-line cuts, burns, pinches, or even kickbacks.

Before aligning your rip fence, you must align the saw blade to the miter track. Once the saw blade is aligned:

  • Insert a combination square into the track – Extend the square’s blade six-inches and lock. Insert the square into the front of the miter track. Push the anvil surface against the track edge nearest the fence.
  • Push the fence against the blade end – That places the fence in contact with the square. Lock it down.
  • Run the square down the track – As the square moves, it should remain in contact with the fence. If it does not, adjust the fence and try again.

You can see this method here, along with three other alignment methods for your rip fence:

How Do You Use A Rip Fence?

Once you have your rip fence aligned with the table saw blade, you are ready to make rip cuts. Using the rip fence is simple, including:

Move the rip fence for rough hand alignment

Most cheaper fence designs move by hand. Push the fence into position using the marking lines on the tabletop edge and alignment mark on the rip fence. You will need to gently tap the fence into the final position if it does not have alignment knobs.

Lock fence into place

The rip fence will have one or two knobs or levers that lock the fence in place. Make sure the fence does not move as the mechanisms engage.

Make small adjustments for final alignment

You can make micro-adjustments with knobs on some designs. Other fences require you to tap gently on them to move it fractions of an inch.

Align board with the fence

Use a straight board edge on the fence. That edge needs to remain in contact with the fence through the cut.

Use a push block or push stick

These safety devices will keep pressure on the board as it moves. They also keep your fingers and hands away from the saw blade.

Watch the fence

As we gain experience, we learn to watch the fence and not the blade. Keeping the board pressed against the fence during the rip cut is important.

Where Can You Buy A Rip Fence?

If you are buying an aftermarket or replacement rip fence for your table saw, it would be best to shop in person. You can inspect the rip fence before buying it and might be able to try it out!

Most of us have big-box stores close to home. That includes stores like Home Depot or Lowe’s.

Larger urban areas will also have stores that specialize in power tools. That includes chain stores like Granger Industrial Supplies as well as stores unique to the local market.

Rockler is an example of a store that specializes in woodworking.

You can always shop online as well. An advantage here is possible discounted due to less overhead.

That includes Amazon, which has several business “storefronts” to shop. Most big-box and specialized chains maintain an online presence.

Markets for used tools, like eBay, also exist. It is hard to judge the quality of fences from sites like this, though.

Start Ripping Now!

A rip fence is a necessary piece of your table saw and is easy to set up and use. If you find your current rip fence lacking, then shopping for a replacement will improve your accuracy. Master your rip fence and increase your woodworking fun!

The Best Miter Saw Fence Systems For Your Saw

There are few miter saw upgrades better than adding a miter saw fence system. From quick one-time cuts to series of dozens or hundreds of cuts a fence on your miter saw workstation is a huge time saver.

And, a miter saw fence will improve the accuracy of the cuts.

  • All-in-one fence systems from major manufacturers
  • DIY components
  • Combination miter saw stands fences (mobile or workshop)
  • Features to look for in a fence system
  • Review of the Kreg KMS8000 fence

Lastly, while it’s tempting to build a DIY fence, the value and accuracy of an all-in-one system is generally worth the cost.

What is a Miter Saw Fence System

A miter saw fence system is an add-on to your existing miter saw that provides an integrated fence with stop blocks and a measuring system. Using the measuring system you can put away your tape measure and pencil while making cuts. And, using the stop blocks you can quickly cut 5, 20 or 500 cuts with the same precision on each cut.

Who Makes Miter Fence Systems

Not surprisingly, this niche of products isn’t widely covered. But you will find fence systems from the following well known tool suppliers:

What’s the most popular miter fence? Arguably, the Kreg KMS8000 as it’s sold by Kreg (the makers of dozens of woodworker helping jigs) and it’s market longevity. In fact, for over a decade, this model has changed very little.

Alternatives to a Miter Fence System

Not sure you want to invest in a complete system? There are a few options, but you’ll give up some flexibility, speed and very likely precision:

  • DIY miter fence tracks can be made using t-track and a custom wood block. But, what you save on cost, you give up accuracy of the custom-made rails found on purchased kits.
  • Custom wood fences are the “old school” solution with a self-adhesive ruler and custom stop blocks
  • Or, something I’ve used a few times, a simple wood stop block pounded into the bench. Not exactly a fence, but an effective stopper. It’s just slow and good for 12″ cuts on most benches where you miter saw is integrated into the bench.

Best Miter Saw Fence Systems

Perhaps surprisingly, there are NOT a lot of suppliers of miter saw fence systems. So, with that, there are both all-in-one systems and DIY kits to economically expand your saws capabilities.


New in 2022, the StealthStop resolves a few of the biggest complaints about the Kreg jig: ability to firmly lock in the stop. and maintain pre-sets.

However, Woodpeckers (a top brand in woodworking) went further and created a unique flip-up design that allows for multiple pre-sets to be made. And, when you’re done with that cut length, simply fold it away and use the saw with other stops.

Editor: I decided to replace my Kreg Miter Saw System with this after I upgraded to a Festool Kapex. I’ll update this review the results soon.

Key Features

A Made In the USA product, this precision track and stops will allow or industrial grade cutting without needing to worry about the flip stop moving or flexing.

The primary drawback of this fence? Well, versus the Kreg or like your table saw, the stop doesn’t directly connect to the measuring tape. So you’ll need a combination square to link the two. A bit slower if you are making dozens of different length cuts.

  • 96 inches of total track
  • Four stops
  • Mounts horizontally or vertically
  • Stops flip away
  • Micro-adjustment built into stops


From the popular Kreg Tools comes the Precision Trak system that offers both miter saw and drill press fences up to 96″. And with Kreg’s track record of providing durable products that last, this is a fence system to seriously consider.

Using a decade-plus old design this system operates in combination with a wooden fence to offer a left and right hand fence setup that installs in just a few hours.

And, of course, with this being part of the Kreg lineup of products there are instructions included on building the fence system with the popular hole system from Kreg.

Editor: After needing a miter saw on my own saw, I ultimately chose the Kreg and have installation instructions and a further review below. I chose it because I wanted ALL of the pieces in one package. And I liked the wide ruler and two stops.

Key Features

  • Includes two stops for production use or swing-away functionality
  • Precision lens for clear view to your cut length
  • 8-feet of track in 2-foot lengths
  • 2 self-adhesive measuring tapes that can be cut to length

Review. Kreg Miter Saw Fence Stop System

By giving you a complete box of all the parts you’ll need, Kreg lets you decide your configuration. And, includes the stops, measuring tapes and short lengths to allow you to setup equal fences on both sides of your saw. Or 24″ to the right and 72″ to the left. Or…you get the picture.

After installing this system one of the features I really liked was the tension adjustable swing-away stopper. Since sawdust inevitably pushes its way down the fence you can lift the stopper off the fence and let the dust slide by. Thus preventing an inaccurate cut.

  • 96 inches of track
  • Two stops (production swing away)
  • Locks in place rigidly
  • Easy to adjust and set length
  • Design your own fence


Along the similar lines of the Kreg, but allowing for flexibility in length (and reduced cost), the Rockler system lets you buy shorter lengths and customize your track.

With this 36″ DIY kit you’ll be able to make left or right handed systems by adding in your own tape measure and stops (sold separate, also from Rockler).

Key Features

  • 36″ overall length
  • Double T-Track design for a stop and tape measure
  • Aluminum construction
  • Pre-drilled holes for easy installation

Review. Rockler Miter Saw Fence Stop System

Where Kreg packs everything you’ll need into one box, Rockler has taken a different approach and lets you buy a shorter length of double T-Trak. And, by adding on extras of your own choosing you can custom build your stop system to your saws needs.

  • Shorter lengths of track to DIY design
  • Less cost vs. Kreg KMS8000
  • Slide-in T-Track tape measure
  • Optional flip-stop with lens
  • Tape measure not as clear to read as Kreg
  • Assembling more than 3 of these systems equals the (larger) Kreg kit cost
  • Best for a single extension


For a tighter budget, the POWERTECH system offers up a double T-Track kit that includes the track, measuring tape and plastic track. However, the POWERTECH flip stop is optional but an economical add-on.

Key Features

  • 36″ overall length
  • Double T-Track design
  • Right and left measurements
  • Extruded aluminum
  • Pre-drilled holes for easy installation

Review. POWERTECH Double T-Track Fence System

The biggest factor with POWERTECH versus similar offerings is it’s price.

miter, fence, kreg, stop, block

If your view is 5 savings on the same product can be spent on a drill bit, then the POWERTECH miter saw fence system was built for you.

  • Shorter lengths of track to DIY design
  • Less cost vs. Kreg KMS8000 Rockler
  • Slide-in T-Track tape measure
  • Optional flip-stop with lens

Installing the KREG KMS8000 Miter Saw Fence System

After looking at the options, I decided to go with the Kreg KMS8000 as it had all the components I needed:

  • One kit with all the components
  • Enough for 48″ to the right and left of my miter saw (I chose 54″ right, 24″ left)
  • While restricting double bevel cuts, I chose to install it as a zero clearance fence (more later)
  • Single track with the BEST visibility to the Kreg left to right and right to left tape

It’s worth repeating and noting that. The Kreg system is a single track with the best visible tape system. You’ll thank your eyes later when you’re not squinting into a smaller T-track based tape.

Unboxing the Kreg Miter Saw Track

Kreg isn’t the leader in jigs by luck. So, it wasn’t a surprise when I opened the miter saw track kit and found everything neatly packed in a well thought out tray system.

All the pieces were separated during shipping, no dings, and no mars.

However, like any woodworker, your first reaction might be a reaction to the volume of parts that were shipped. But, in the end, it took more thought on designing the fence box system.

Choosing Your Fence Extensions. Longer Left or Right?

Even though my saw is a 15-year old Makita I didn’t think twice about building around it given it’s durability. So, the first order of business was setting up a 24″ left fence and a 54″ right fence.

It’s worth noting, when you’re building the fence there is a bit of freedom here:

  • Your bench may dictate which side has the longer fence (right or left)
  • Or, if you’re like me, I’ve grown accustomed to feeding stock left to right. So while it could be easier to have the primary fence stop to the left, it would undo 25 years of cutting experience.

Making the Fence System Supports

First, you may notice from the picture that the 3/4″ plywood was pre-finished. For some reason, this plywood was cheaper than an unfinished sheet of the same B-grade. So, rather than spend time later on finishing I went with it.

For the fence supports there are all kinds of options. But, having been down the build path, I’d recommend:

  • Well, first, read the instructions. Kreg offers up a simpler solution than I conjured up using their hole system. Of course.
  • Make sure to plan the height of the box so it is perfectly flush with the miter saw.
  • Remember to think of the overall fence length, and match the box to that length (plus overhang).
  • Use glue and screws

Adapt the Fence Table and Stop to your Saw

While I chose to install the fence as a zero-clearance fence, I still needed the saw to move left and right to a full 45-degrees.

Which, you are probably guessing, means clearance to the right and left is required both for the saw AND your hands. So, be sure to plan this out ahead of time and make the proper adjustments.

Editor: Make sure to setup, test out your configuration, and adjust every part of the fence system before making final glue-ups and screwing.

The Biggest Fence Decision: To Extend or Overlap

If your miter saw is anything like mine, you’ll find you will have at least 10″ to the left and right that won’t have a fence stop.

Unless you take the (not so obvious) approach of installing the miter saw fence system IN FRONT of the existing fence.

So, while you lose a double bevel capability, you gain a much more accurate fence system with stops up to about 3″. And, this is where the the FastCap 10-million Dollar Stick comes into play. Holding short sticks next to a saw is an absolute DO NOT attempt.

The other option? Sacrifice a miter fence stop the first 10-14″ and start the system further away from the blade.

Installing the Miter Fence and Stops

Following the instructions, and after your fence blocks are built, simply install the Kreg T-trak on top of a 3/4″ thick fence block (you’ll need to drill the holes).

  • On the left of the saw I only needed one 24″ track, and due to my saws existing fence had a 8″ setback before the fence stops could come into play
  • On the right of the saw I had two joints where the 24″ rails butted together. Be sure to spend some time and PRECISELY align them…
  • …or you’ll be catching the sliding stops on the tracks for years to come.

Choose Where Your Miter Saw Fence Stops Will Go (Carefully)

Interestingly, and something I didn’t think through first, the stops are made to be assembled for use on the left or the right of the fence.

So, take a few minutes and decide which miter saw stop you want on which side.

Personally, I like the swing away stop on the long side of the fence. If you adjust the tension correctly it can sit 1/4″ off the fence block base and allow sawdust to slide by.

Install the Adhesive Tapes

After the fence is setup, one of the last steps is installing the adhesive tapes. So, in this step the biggest trick is setting the tape EXACTLY in place.

With that, as you might have guessed, follow the instructions carefully as the tape will decide your long term capability.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a miter saw fence?

The best way to make a miter saw fence is to use a fence system. These systems come with either a single or a double T-Track that hold an adhesive tape and the miter saw stops. Then, simply build a fence to the specifications and attach to your bench.

Simple Low-Profile Miter Saw Stop Block!

Does a miter saw need to be bolted down?

Bolting or screwing your miter saw down is both an improvement in safety as well as improved accuracy. In fact, for sliding miter saws bolting it down is a necessity as the sliding action will pull the saw back and forth.

What is the best way to control dust on a miter saw?

For miter saws the best way to stop dust is by installing a dust hood that wraps around the saw and connects to your dust collection system. And, the best hoods are lighted to ensure the shroud doesn’t darken the cutting area.


With just a handful of miter saw fence systems on the market, the Kreg jumps out as a top solution for most. But, if cost and a smaller fence stop is your goal there are a couple of dual T-Track systems for your saw.
