Default Deciding on a new miter gauge - Incra 1000SE and 1000HD

Trying to decide on a new miter gauge for my Bosch 4100-10. I've narrowed it down to either the Incra 1000SE or 1000HD.

Other than the slight difference between the two, has anyone had experience with them?

Any other miter gauges to consider?

Thanks,
Steve

I like my 4100 and the miter gauge that came with it, I just put a sacrificial fence on it and it is good to go.

I understand. The Bosch isn't a bad miter gauge at all. But I'm looking to upgrade for now and in the future.

This is part of the problem of having a hip replacement, pain pills, and too much time until I can get back in the shop. The siren call of new tools and spring!

Thanks.

FWW did a tool test and the JDS Accumiter came out on top but I think they may have quit making them. All of the Incra models did pretty well but some much better than others. I can't find the issue with the test in it at the moment. Pay attention to how much of the guide rail is used up by the mechanism. That was one of the issues with them.

I've had the 1000HD for about 5 years and I use it all the time. It's a good tool and is very reliable, versatile, and repeatable.

Stop every 5 degrees (SE) vs every degree (HD), I have the SE and like it fine, not sure I'd really use the one degree stops. But my favorite tool is the Rockler sled, which I've tuned so it gives exact angle cuts. For precise miters, I rely on my Lion style miter trimmer.

I went to their website and took a look at the Osborne. That's the first time I've seen the Osborne in action and it looks pretty slick, Doug. I can see why you like it. I still like my 1000HD but if I were in the market I'd have to consider the Osborne.

Thanks for the post. I looked at the website, watched the video, and it certainly has merit and looks interesting. I had no idea such a miter gauge existed.

I would want to see and try it in person before committing to it, but it seems sturdy and accurate.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Steve, been there with other parts, both knees and just 7 weeks ago the left shoulder. Kick those pain pills to the side as quickly as possible or you may see your money going elsewhere....I do have the 1000SE and it does a great job for me. One of the main features other than the multiple angle settings was the adjustable miter bar. That being adjusted properly adds a good deal to the actual cut.
