Default Proxxon Mini Chop Miter Saw

[Occasionally I need to cut some tubes. I use the Proxxon Miter Saw, but am not 100% satisfied with the stop that comes with the saw. I fabricated one that I think serves my purpose a little better. First I drilled and tapped a 10-32 hole in one of the vise jaws and made a little brass know to fit. Next I used some aluminum angle and my milling machine to make the adjustable stop. Now I get dead on tubes.

Ben,
Was your little brass know supposed to be a little brass knob?

Thanks for sharing. . You made a nice job of the modification.

I assume the vice was factory fitted. . From what I can see of it, it looks fairly substantial. Maybe it is just the provided stop that didn't quite "cut it" for you. . I see how you made your new adjustable stop mechanism and that looks really good. . An idea I can adapt and use. . Thanks.
