    Probably reinventing the wheel here. :)

    Here is a little gadget that I have been using to more accurately cut blocks to 13 to 14 inches long for my new stove. The old stove was large enough that anything from 16 to 22 inches would work fine and still get enough wood in for over night even in -30F temps but the new one needs to be more carefully loaded.

    The gage is just a length of plastic strapping left over from a pallet load of side walk paving blocks. The end that gets clamped to the saw handle was doubled over and wrapped with electrical tape so that the hose clamp would hold better.
    At least for shorter lengths it seems to work fine without getting in the way, and can be quickly removed if needed. It may even promote better safety when sawing close to the ground by poking you in the left leg when it is tempting to saw close to your left foot.
