It arrived today as promised. Getting an incra miter gauge on Wednesday, my cheapo from Laguna is far too sloppy to use, both in the jig and in the saw. I have some mirror in storage that would make a nice 6 sided first project.

Glad you finally got YOUR MiterSet jig! Nice quality, eh?!

Why not just get a Generic Miter gauge and let the MiterSet do the work; rather than also invest in an Incra miter gauge?

Looking forward to seeing how it works for you...

I hope to have shop cleaned real soon so I can give it a Test Run!

Have Fun,
Joe

Howdy guys, the Incra miter gauge arrived today and after adjusting the width about 1/32nd wider, it is a perfect fit for both the jigs and the Laguna saw. I'm a happy boy. I noticed that the metal of the miger gauge head doesn't go peg to peg on the jig, which is why they put in the metal straight edge for the jig.

Very GOOD, Tom!

I have to get out there in the shop and move crap around to TRY THESE Jigs OUT!!

I never even thought there would ever be a problem of the miter gauge face NOT being wide enough to span Peg to Peg! I hope yours is able to work now!

What is your 1st project going to be?

I've been thinking of making a small Soap Dish 8 segment polygon... 2 ends, 2 sides, and 4 corners... Hope it works... it should... Then, I'll scoop out the middle a little... Just soaking in BLO to finish.

My miter gauge for my saw has a t won't fit in jig. But I had an old miter gauge. Fits perfect. My question is gauge exactly 22 and 1.2 drees which its supposed to be for a 8 segment so what do I need for fancy jig?

Joe, I'm thinking of a multi-sided mirror, but when I mentioned this new capability to my wife, the painter, she had a few ideas. Going to start with some nice flat pine, cut a groove in it first and lay in some 3/4 inch textured inlays stained a different tone than the base.

And I too am amazed by the workmanship in these jigs. I have one other jig I like using, which is an exact width dado jig for the router that uses a straight edge. Very similar quality, except for the oops where I learned, don't lift the router out of the groove or jig until it's completely stopped. Didn't ruin the jig, but the expensive carbide down spiral bit was retired from service.

One of these days I'm headed down to Rockler and we'll have to have some coffee and a chat. Saturday a.m. they have demos, so we could meet there in Ontario. I like those guys (and gal) at that store. They are always so helpful.
