Fed up with the MFT rail hitting you?
« on: November 09, 2019, 07:18 AM »
I'm fed up with my MFT rail falling on me when, with my workshop door open, a gust of wind blows it down.

I've tried a block of wood as a stop, but one always has to remember to put it in place, so I came up with a new idea.  It's a horseshoe magnet that is fixed to the bottom of the rail, and grabs the rear height adjuster, to the left of the lever.  It works well.

Good idea, I like it.

I will be rummaging through my box of miscellaneous bits for a suitable magnet next chance I get. :-)
