I hadn't seen this when I replied to Biagio and now I have a picture to boot. Thanks Harry. Seriously, sometimes I really do need it spelled out and a picture never hurts......

What about accuracy Stick, a router bit is accurate and NON-ADJUSTABLE, a table saw is adjustable and therefor can be a whisker out.

all you are doing is hogging away material giving the lock miter bit less to cut..

Use a Wixey digital angle gauge to set the blade at 45 degrees. Use a full kerf blade. Can't get more accurate than that.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I posted this picture a couple of days ago, but in the wrong place. The pix if of the Infinity lock miter jig. Find a safe place to store these in a container, they are easily misplaced. The magnets hold them in place. Those are Infinity bits.

Harry, I’m with Stick on this. Removing the excess stock does not require infinite accuracy - that will be supplied by the lock mitre bit itself. Using a 90 degree V bit will still mean pulverizing all the wood below the diagonal. Easier and quicker with a saw, especially if doing long boards.

I tried the saw once and it didn't leave a perfect point which meant that the lock mitre wasn't perfect so I have never used the saw again for this purpose.

Why should I take a chance when I have a perfect method. In any case you prove my point that because the saw is adjustable, it's possible for the average amateur to be a touch out, but not with my method!
