This is a little quickie, I,like many others, own a small import horizontal bandsaw.
when cutting a lot of pieces to the same length the backstop is used.
on mine and others I imagine, the backstop consists of a 10mm dia rod fixed to the back of the vice with a cast metal piece that slides along it.
the problem starts when the cut is nearly through, the cut piece can twist and jam between the stop and the blade, possibly breaking the blade.
I have seen a tip whereby you place a block of metal between the stop and the end of whatever you're cutting so there is a gap.
my idea is, machine a collar to slide on the rod between the stop and the vice with a setscrew to lock it in place, then, place the work in the vice set at the correct distance to cut, bring the stop up to the end of the work, then move the collar up to touch the inside of the stop and lock it.
then you can move the stop away from the work, cut the piece, put the stop back to the collar, move the work up to the stop, move the stop and cut.
rinse and repeat.
bit of a long winded explanation I know but takes seconds to set up.
I would put a pic up but Photowreckit has gone down.
I hope this is helpful to somebody.
