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.
OK, Tom,
When you ant to go to a Demo, let me know and we will try to work it out... I have never gone to any of their demos... sounds like fun!

Double sided mirror... don't know if I've seen one... Front & Back?
Sounds like a Fancy project!

I just want a Polygon to put together!

Have Fun,
Joe

Gary, sure glad you found a miter gauge that fit!!

Yep, why do you need a Fancy Jig? Good question!

You sure started something big with this post Harry, but thanks.

I knew about them, but hadn't investigated sufficiently until you made reference to them in this thread. Now I own the pair. I hope somewhere along this you managed to get your own set.

I have 3 miter gauges 2 fit the jig my table saw a Makita does not fit it's a t mount only went down to 30 degrees. The two that fit the jig were about a 1/4 of degree off with the scale on the miter gauges. The best is my Incra Hd 1000 with attached extrusion. The Incra is the gauge I will be using. I do have a project I am going to build a wishing well it is going to be in October.

Sorry to hear that your MiterSet jigs cannot be used for your T-slotted table saw... Are you going to try to Return them? I guess your Incra is a T-Slot?

Have Fun,

@Joe Liddon Not going to be double sided mirror. I'll be placing a solid backing of some sort on it as a stiffener. Will likely use it to work out using a spline, and also thinking about adding some decorative element, perhaps some "rope".

Wink A Fun Chart of Polygons...

Here's a chart showing shapes of straight sided polygons that I drew for my shop employees many years ago, this gets utilized when we're manufacturing concrete forms for various projects.

My Miter Set gauges work fine with both of my original Delta Unisaw miter gauges. Only a few thousandths play between them. One of them uses a T slot, but the T is only a special washer at the far end, so it doesn't interfere at all with the Miter Set gauges. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I haven't yet needed to use them since I've been busy finishing up some other projects, but spent enough time checking to make sure they will do what I need, and all looks great.

@otis , that's an interesting chart. I had no idea what the names for most of these segmented shapes were. I'll be printing it for the wall of my shop. Something to talk about with my shop visitors and students. Thanks for posting it.

Glad to hear they both work GOOD! How did you test the Segment jig?
