Workshop Tip: Easy micro-adjuster for any crosscut fence

I wanted a micro-adjuster for my miter gauge however was too impatient to order one, so I got here up with this easy however efficient shopmade model. All you must do is drill a barely angled gap in a wooden block, and twist a thumbscrew into it. The outlet is barely smaller than the skin diameter of the screw, so it would make its personal threads within the wooden. And it’s drilled at an angle to provide the thumb finish of the screw the clearance it wants. As a result of the top of the screw contacts the workpiece at an angle, I rounded over its finish. To make use of the micro-adjuster, simply clamp it onto any fence in your store, together with your miter gauge or crosscut sled. It really works nice.
