Does anyone use the Osborne Miter Gauge? The sled on this craftsmen is not anything to write home about in the first place, but it's also shot to hell

I had an Osborne. It was a bit awkward and I passed it along to my son in law. For angled cuts, I prefer to use the Rockler sled. True up the 90 to the blade and it's spot on for any other angle. If I were to get one, it would be an Incra.

There was a mitre gauge test by Fine Woodworking about a year or so ago. The Osborn scored around lower middle. Best was the JD Accumiter but it looks like they may have stopped making them. The Kreg was considered a good choice for the money but in absolute terms it didn't compare with most of the Incra ones. One thing to watch for with the Incra gauges is that some of the mechanisms are quite large which may affect how much guide bar is in the slot before the wood contacts the blade. I think it was one of the 3000 models which had an especially large adjusting mechanism.

I have an Osborn EB-3 like the one Norm Abram had in his shop years ago. I've found it to be very accurate with the following caveat: Take your time setting the angles and don't rely too heavily on the detents for 90, 45, etc. Make sure the stop fully enters the detent or there could be some flex. The guide bar has three Allen set screws that adjust the bar for various slot widths.
