Sometimes when building a project, I’ll want to reset my table saw’s rip fence exactly to an earlier setting. Here’s a simple jig that helps me do it without measuring. I routed a 5/16″-wide slot in a long, narrow piece of quarter-inch plywood and mounted it to the metal bar and knob of one of my featherboards. I glued a second plywood crosspiece to the end. To use the jig, I slide the registration end over against the rip fence setting I want to record and tighten the nut just enough to lock the jig’s position. Now I can lift the jig off the saw and set it aside. My “story stick” jig is ready to set back in the miter slot and relocate the fence when I need it.
