New innovation from Woodpeckers

 Monday, February 13, 2023

Woodpeckers introduced the new Rip-Flip Fence Stop System that guarantees impeccable accuracy. Flip stops have long been a feature of mitre gauges, router tables, and drill presses. They provide repeatability when you need it, move out of the way when you don’t, and are constantly prepared to resume work at a moment’s notice. The Rip-Flip Fence Stop System, created by Woodpecker, expands on the accuracy and practicality of the flip stop.

Whether you have a specific dimension that you use day in and day out (rail and stile stock width, for example) or need to save a critical dimension during just one project, the Rip-Flip will return your rip fence to the exact same position time and time again. To use a Rip-Flip Stop, just flip it up, slide the fence until it contacts the brass tip of the stop and lock your fence. It’s that easy. The large knurled brass knobs and thumbwheels make fine adjustments and secure locking quick and accurate. The stops are symmetrical, so they can be installed to contact the left side of the fence or the right, the choice is yours.

By coupling two stops together to produce perfect fitting dadoes without the hassle of repeated trial-and-error attempts, just the right combination of chippers and shims could be achieved. Simply assemble your dado stack to at least half the width of your finished dado. Then, with a few turns of the micro-adjuster you can fine tune a perfect fitting dado by making two cuts; one against each stop.

At this point in time, the Rip-Flip Fence Stop System is compatible with two table saw families. One version works with SawStop brand Contractor, Professional and Industrial table saws equipped with their unique “T-Glide” fence. The second version fits Powermatic brand saws with their unique “Accu-Fence”. There are two configurations of the Accu-Fence. The Rip-Flip for Powermatic comes with all the hardware and adapters you would need for either style. Rip-Flip Systems for other brands of saws and other fences will be announced as they become available. Integrating the Rip-Flip System with your table saw takes just a few minutes.
