One of the most important components of accuracy in a TigerStop is being properly calibrated.

Including calibration, there are three major components of accuracy:

  • Calibration – Simply put, calibration is telling the TigerStop the distance between your pusher foot and the zero point
  • Repeatability – The next biggest component is having repeatable results at one position
  • Scale – Lastly, scale is the mathematical factor between rotations of the motor, to linear movement of the carriage


For this section we will cover how to calibrate your machine.

  • First you’ll want to move your positioner to a shorter position and make a test cut and measure.
  • Next follow the steps below to calibrate your machine:
