Default New Cutline Indicator

Having never adopted the ACEs I was inspired by bumpnstump's cutline indicator, so I took one of the parallel limit stops and drilled it to accept some 1/8" bar stock then drilled and tapped 90 to those holes bent and filed some rod and adjusted to mark each side of the kerf. Works a treat. I may file these to a point rather than the way I have them right now, but either way I'm quite pleased with this.

Bring used to the cursor on my Unifence, I went in another direction. A short piece of HDPE grooved to fit on the track and a moveable plexiglass cursor. The second line is for the outside of the kerf, on the off-chance that I cut on that side. It works well when setting up the Cabinet Maker for repetitive cuts - line the cursor up with the pencil line, move the stop on the arm until it hits the end of the piece and you're good to go.

Both cool ideas. I'd like something I could stick in my pocket, I've got enough things I have to pick up and find a place to set down already.

Thanks, I just leave it on the track and let the saw push it, because I definitely will loose it if I take it off for each cut.
