Default gauge guide?

I am trying to purchase a gift for my husband. He has a Jet bandsaw Model # JSL-12BS

I am looking for a router gauge guide. When I google it I either get one for a 14" or one for a table saw. Can anyone

please tell me where I can find this?

Thanking anyone in advance for any help you may be able to give me!

I can’t tell if you are asking for help with a fence, a miter gauge or something else. Not sure how to use a “router gauge guide” on a bandsaw


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

That might be my problem. I know he has a guide on his table saw. He mentioned he would like one for his band saw. It seems it's something to help keep whatever he is cutting straight (?) or in place. Does that make sense? I think it is a miter gauge.

Welcome Sandy...
I believe you are looking for a miter gauge...
can you show us what the one on the table saw looks like...
you can up upload a picture providing they reside on the device you are posting from...

Hey Sandy--welcome!!

Miter gauge makes more sense, take a look at this one https://www.incrementaltools.com/INC...p/miterv27.htm You could spend half as much for lesser quality somewhere, but Incra stuff is pretty accurate. Or--for $20 more you can get the V120 with 120 pre-set stops instead of 27 https://www.incrementaltools.com/INC.../miterv120.htm. That may sound like overkill--but with 120 pre-set stops he should have any angle he wants. The sites linked are for the manufacturer's web site, Amazon carries the V120 at under $70 with free shipping.

I'd be highly impressed if my wife gave me anything Incra--and she sees a bunch of their product in my shop!!

Hello Sandy. Welcome aboard.

He might be asking for a fence or a miter gauge. At times both can be helpful.

Kreg makes a fence that fits most band saws.

For more information, check out this link. --->https://www.amazon.com/Kreg-KMS7200-...band+saw+fence

Hope this helps.
Mike

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Just a thought...

As Greenacres suggested, the Incra miter gauge is helpful when cross cutting small parts or cutting accurate miters (angled cuts).

AND...it will work on a table saw or in your case, the band saw. In other words, the slot is 3/4 inch wide and usually 3/8 inch deep. For it to work on the table saw, the slot would also have to be 3/4 inch wide. Some saws have goofy slots that won't allow aftermarket gauges.

I looked up the manual for y'alls Jet band saw and the slot is 3/4 inch wide and 3/8 inch deep.

Hope this helps.
Mike

EDIT: I took a few pics of my Incra HD 1000 miter gauge. It fits my table saw slot and the band saw slot. The gauge fence is adjustable so it can be used on either one. I have also used it on the compact DeWalt table saw I use for work out of the shop.

Thank you all for giving such helpful answers and for going the extra mile in checking that the Incra V120 will work on my husband's band saw!

I really like the idea of him being able to have so many cuts so I think I will go with the one you have recommended.

He is going to be so surprised when he opens this! ( he will just assume I am not getting it for him since I haven't asked any more questions about it!!)

Only then will I tell him about the great group of guys I found on here!


Thank you all so very much!! I will sure know where to come next time I need some help. Merry Christmas to all of you and thanks again!! Sandy
