When it comes to repeatable accuracy, a well-designed FlipStop might just be the most important single component in your jig, fixture or fence—which is why we have obsessed over perfecting it for over a year. The result is our TPG FlipStop v2.0, embodying the quality and capability of the entire TPG System with an attention to detail you won't find in any other material stop on the market:
Watch this video to see the features and refinements of the TPG FlipStop v2.0.
- Exclusive Calibration Memory™ collar eliminates the need to re-calibrate the FlipStop when switching between Standard and Narrow Stock Rods
- The fastest-to-calibrate on the market: watch the video on the right to see how easy it is
- Parallax free cursor makes it easy to read T-track dimension and dial in your exact setting
- Comfort Grip Star Knobs for quick lock and release, even with gloves on
- Internal spring loading against TPG T-track means that even when the FlipStop knob is loosened, you won't accidently move it along the T-track as you turn the Star Knob to lock in a setting—a common problem with inferior material stops
- Reversible design so it can work on right- or left-hand TPG T-tracks; can be reversed with just one tool: a 3mm hex driver or key

These stops for the parallel guides are incredibly high quality. The machining, precision and finish is excellent. You can get extremely accurate cuts with them. However, there is one thing in the design I consider a huge downside. They can be tricky to calibrate if you are looking for sub-millimeter accuracy, because there is no micro-adjust feature. I suppose it would be difficult to have that as well as narrow rip functionality, but I have a table saw for narrow rips so I will never use that feature. If it did have micro-adjust, I would consider it near-perfect. The video guide suggests you can calibrate the stops by referencing the splinter guard on your track, I found that to be inadequate since my track splinter guard is not in perfect shape. My method for calibrating is this: install both rails on a track using TPG guide rail adapters, and adjust both stops as precisely as you can to some arbitrary length, say 500mm. I reference my marks so that the zero-parallax marker just barely obscures the tick mark (while still completely obscuring it), when viewed vertically on the side towards the track, but you could do it either way as long as you're consistent. Make a cut on a scrap piece. Remove the track from the workpiece. Using a very accurate ruler (I use the rulers from the parf guide), measure the actual length of the cut for each side, and mark it on each side. Then, put the track back on in the same orientation, pull the stops tight against the reference edge, and clamp the track firmly down to the workpiece, using guide rail clamps on both sides. Next, undo the calibration screws and the stop collar screws, and adjust the flip stop, to the observed cut length for that side. If the cut was 499mm, move the flip stop to 499mm. Then, press the calibration rod firmly into the reference edge and tighten the screw, and then tighten collar screw while firmly pressing it against the flip stop. Note that there are two orientations the collar can be, one will slightly pull the collar into the flip stop, and the other will pull it away, creating a gap. You have to experiment to find which is which, but you want collar to press into the flip stop when you tighten the screw. Now, you can repeat that entire process until you achieve the accuracy you're trying for. I had to do this process 4 or 5 times until I got both flip stops calibrated to about 1/3mm.
Easy installation and accurate repeatable settings make this system better than any others I have used or looked into. The new collar on the flipstop locks the stop in place and ensures that it does not cjhange.
I recently purchased a set of long parallel guides and had to order a second flip stop because a set screw broke on the first set I bought after about 3 uses. I didn't know there were other versions of this product. I feel cheated because if there was this problem being fixed by a version release, and you guys knew about it, you should have done a recall. For the price you charge for your products your clientele would expect this.
Sure it’s a nice TSO product. But no instructions, no video and the only way you stay “calibrated” is when you go back to the standard rod. You are still going to calibrate your narrow stock rods every time. Because only one collar comes in the kit. So was it worth spending the money? The new short rod looks to be improved. And my original drifted because I didn’t find the original screw worthy of keeping my calibration. So... I guess if you are swapping daily to narrow stock rod then yes. But I’m disappointed that there is only one collar. For the price I don’t think this is a good upgrade. I’m probably going to try and find some additional collar to put on my narrow rods. If your an original user like me I would don’t bother. But I guess I could be wrong since there are no instructions or videos. So ... who knows lol
