Have the Incra table saw fence and keep looking at the miter. Have Kregs miter and it works ok. If I get making picture frame's more often I am going to look seriously at the chopper. Thks for the welcome WLWGlad you decided to join the fun. I make picture frames for my wife. The price of wood is a killer though. My wife bought me a Lion Miter Trimmer for making baby behind smooth, exact 45 degree corners. But I do my basic cutting on a Laguna table saw. Nice tool. Here's the trimmer:

I make my rough 45 either with a sliding miter, but get a cleaner miter cut with this miter gauge, which has a sliding arm and stop block to I can cut opposite sides to exact length. The trimmer shaves off about 1/16 inch and leaves a very smooth cut.

I keep thinking I need to start making my own hardwood frame stock. The commercial stuff always has a warped or split end so I have to buy two strips. If I make my own from shorter, straight pieces,cut my own profiles, I think I can cut the costs a bit. That stuff is through the roof lately.
Thks for that info. Will ck it out. WLW
