I think I replied to a very similar post earlier. Mine is installed on a SawStop Industrial. It works exactly as advertised. It is crucial to follow the installation instructions. The bolts that attach the unit also hold the fence rail onto the saw. If you loosen too many of these bolts at the same time, your fence will have to be completely recalibrated. My unit came in two sections. The sections meet in the middle of the saw. You need to be sure the two sections butt together perfectly so that the flip stop will slide smoothly across the joint.

The unit is of high quality and provides strong stops. Good product.

We just posted a new video of the Rip-Flip in action cutting dadoes, if you're interested.

We added a kit of modification brackets and parts to the Powermatic model making it compatible with pretty much anything that looks like a Biesemeyer T-Square fence. It has been beta tested on a pretty broad array of new, old and in between fences If it has a 2x3 rectangular tube bolted to the fence via an angle iron, it will almost surely fit. https://www.woodpeck.com/rip-flip-fence-pm.html

This is good news. I want to thank WP for releasing a kit that works with other brands of saws.

I have enjoyed using mine on my Unisaw. I want to get another pair of stops so I can do even more and have multiple setups. No longer do you have to run everything through at one fence setting because you worry you might not set the fence exactly the same. Any dimension can now be saved and repeated any time in the future.

I have a 1950 Uni that my son and I completely refurbished (probably the most fun I ever had on a project) and it had a Jet-Lock fence that worked well but I was use to using a Biese fence so added a clone. Looks like this WP fence stop may fit it perfectly.

Bob, were you one of our beta testers, or did you just roll the dice and get the Powermatic version?

I worked with Nate on the beta test for the Unisaw last Fall.

Thanks for that. Nothing beats real world testing.
