Easy Sacrificial Fence Measurement

If you have a good rip fence with a positioning scale that you trust (i.e. you don’t have to use a tape measure every time) then make your stop block and sacrificial fences out of full 1″ stock. That way you can mentally add that inch when setting the fence using the scale. That’s a lot easier than adding 3/4″ or 23/32″ or reverting to the tape measure.
