Quick Rip Fence Reset

There are times when your table saw rip fence is precisely positioned for a job, but sitting atop your throat plate when you need to change blades or perhaps adjust the width of a dado head. To save yourself the hassle of fussing a displaced fence back into position afterward, simply butt the end of a board against it and then clamp the board to your saw table before moving the fence. When done with the blade change, slide the fence against the board, lock it down, remove the board, and you are exactly back in action.
