WEven though I have a shooting board with a 90 ° fence, any other angle requires fidgeting with wood, screws, and a protractor. In a moment of desperation, I cut a groove in the center of an old bench hook that matched the standard oblique groove on my table saw and dropped into my.

I had to unscrew the T-slot guide from the end of the gauge, but this provided a perfect, non-destructive way of anchoring it in the slot using a counter-sunk screw in the bench hook.

I calibrated the fence against the edge of the bench hook in the same way you would use the miter gauge in the table saw: loosen the calibration screws on the gauge, take a square, move the fence up to screws of calibration.

The board now has a fence with a built-in protractor and positive stops for multiple angles of a politician running for office.Barak Bruerd
