Description

Imagine how useful it would be to lock off any measure along your steel rule, and then rapidly mark this distance off again and again, with ease and confidence. This stop, made for Garrett Wade, is a carefully machined jig that easily slips on and off virtually any of your rules (up to 1-5/16” wide). The base of the stop is 3/4” wide—more than enough to provide solid support for the back of the rule. The brass nut moves easily up and down the threaded rod to clamp the stop firmly in position.

WOOD magazine review

Universal stop fits almost any steel rule

Review Summary

We use stopblocks on the tablesaw, router table, and drill press practically every day in the WOOD® Magazine shop to ensure multiple matching cuts or evenly spaced holes. Why wouldn’t you want that same reliable repeatability when marking and measuring? The dovetail slot in this handy add-on grips virtually any steel rule up to 1-3/16" wide.
We put a Ruler Stop at each end of a 12" rule and flipped it end for end as we marked a series of cabinet door handles 2" up from the bottom (flip!) and 1" in from the edge.
