>Here are the photos that detail the "micro adjust" feature on my shoot board.
I use a 3/4" x 3/4" x 1 1/2" block of red oak with a 3/16" T-Nut installed as a jacking screw base. A 3/16" socket head cap screw is threaded into this base and bears against a metal angle clip attached to the fence. The pivot screw for the fence is attached to the base via another 3/16" socket head cap screw. A 3/16" T-Nut is installed in the base of the sled to receive it.
The fence pivots freely and I use a square to get it to as close to 90 deg as I can. Then I advance the screw and make it bear against the metal plate on the fence. This limits the travel. I take some test cuts and the when it looks good I secure the fence with a screw. In my next version it will be a bolt/nut that is in an oversized hole.
That's pretty much it.
See ya around,
