    How do you set the stop when you know S.E.L?

    I didn't mean to imply that I have a digital readout on my scale. It's just the ordinary stick-on tape with magnifying lens, but it is calibrated so 1" reading IS 1.0 inches between the fence and the fence side of the blade. With the setup I have, the sliding 'wedgie' fences are on the other...

    Thanks for the fast reply. Your explanation makes sense, but where I was stuck is how to set the stop distance given the data from the summary page. Using the cosine to adjust the S.E.L works perfectly. My stop is a 5" block of maple clamped to my tablesaw fence (to provide plenty of...
