Product Review: Table Stop for 5 Axis Machining

With most other 5 axis table stops we’ve seen most suffer from instability from flex due to poor engineering or manufacturing.  The Pro-Stop is a solid table stop that made setups quick and easy. The body is made from 6061-T6 and pivot components are made from stainless steel to prevent rusting and to insure rigidity.

The manufacturer claims the friction o-rings provide smooth, precise adjustments, but out of the box they seemed a bit sticky.  We easily opened the body by loosening two screws and lubricated them with an o-ring compatible grease.  Now that’s smooth!  The spring loaded T-nuts definitely helped the unit slide around during positioning.  The 1/4″ stop rod can be modified, replaced or extended with longer piece of bar stock, but we recommend turning one end into a sharp point to pick up small part edges.

• Locking lever can be positioned 360º to avoid interference.
• T-nuts fit 5/8″ table studs. Unit is anodized red with a black cast aluminum handle.
• Made in the U.S.A.

Overall, a solid, well-built product.  As of this review it’s priced at $95.95… a bit high for a table stop but the quality, rigidity and adaptability definitely make it worth every penny.
