Very nice. I can't tell by the picture but add a compression spring around the screw if you don't have one all ready. Drill a pocket on the untapped side to hold the spring.

Nice work, TJ. It is not really a standard design, but nobody ever said that it needs to be. Not only that, I rather like it!

Aloris makes a stop to be used on their QC tool holder blocks that works well on mill vises as well, it just needs a 3/8 NC tapped hole on the side of the vise, and the parts for the stop are very easy to make.

Thanks Terry. I've seen them used by a couple of YouTube guys and this is my interpretation of their designs.

I'll have to look at that. I might not have allowed enough space around the screw...

T.J.,

Thanks for sharing this, I have been thinking about making one for my (new to me) vise.
Yours turned out great!

I've never seen that before. But I believe I need to add one into my box now.
I'll copy yours for sure!

Nice work T J. I think you will find your stop very useful at times. I made one that's somewhat similar a while back and I use mine quite a bit.

I had only ever seen work stops of this type before:

I have to admit that I like this clamp on style better for most work so will be making one soon.

I like the 5 axis stops., but these little ones are great too. Nice work. Looks good.
It's more enjoyable to use a tool that one makes.

I'd think the knurled knob would be better replaced with an Allen capscrew, it would not be hard to move the stop if it got accidently bumped, being just finger(s) tightened.

That's true. I've thought about milling a screwdriver slot in the screw, but haven't gotten around to it.
