Does anyone have a robust -- zero deflection -- fence flip stop ( 3" to 4" reach, running on a T-slot track) that they can recommend?

This one seems robust, but does not flip: https://www.katzmoseswoodworking.com/new-products/presale-the-katz-moses-universal-stop-block

I've tried a few flip stops ($30 to $50 Cdn) but they all had a bit of play/deflection.

I know you need a flip up stop, but thought I'd show the Katz Moses stop (since you mentioned it) I just purchased a couple weeks ago.  I needed a stop for my TrackTubes and due to the adjustment height of the Katz Moses stop, it fit perfect.  I recommend it for those who don't need a flip up stop and use a 1/4" t-track. Good luck with your search.

I use Kreg flip stops, they are a perfect fit for 8020 1030 extrusions that I use on my chopsaw and also my drill press'

I’d like to try them but don’t think they’ll fit the incurs miter gauges.

 Why are you not using Incra's stops?  I have one on my Incra miter gage.

I am using it but like the idea how there’s no play in this one.

The Incra’s have a little play or wiggle room?

My incurs moves slightly. I would say maybe a 1/16th

Thanks.

Zero play or deflection?

I have had no luck with any flip stops (some reputable ones) I tried. My local vendor used to carry the Kreg stop but its website no longer lists it. I'll see if other local vendors have it; I'd like to check it out in person first to avoid the return hassle.
