Decided to make the stops 1.75. Cleaned off the table top and pulled out the 3/4" MDF cutting table tops to use as the press ram. Offset the big end of the fold 12" from the right edge of the table top. The plan is to place the MDF on top ot the metal, 2" x 2" x 48" cross beams in five places then clamp the works down to the table.
