Tool: Incra 1000se miter gauge.
Rating: 9 of 10
Review: I bought this when I bought my new table saw, instead of making a new miter sled. I bought it from Woodpecker, along with an auxiliary fence and a replacement MDF sub-fence Woodpecker makes for the Incra. I thought it would improve my 45* & 90* cuts, but I never thought that they would be perfect. And that is the first time, every time. It takes a little time to get it assembled and square, but after that, it's gravy. It has a telescoping fence from 18" to 31". It also incorporates flip-stop for repeated cuts. A big selling point for me. The protractor head is a piece of cake to operate, and is dead on. The only down side for me is that the fence is too short to support some of the pieces I want to miter, so I adjust my blade to 45* and cut them flat instead. But it's a fair trade-off for the accuracy I'm getting. [BNote[/B], I've never used anything but stock miter gauges, so I have no other basis of comparison. There may be better out there, but I'm pretty much sold on Incra. And I'll be using them when I upgrade my router fence later.
