Kreg Miter Gauge vs. Incra Miter Gauge
I have the Incra V27 Miter Gauge and recently I needed to cut six parts for a segmented. Each cut was supposed to be 30 degrees. Previous to the project I had calibrated the miter gauge as best I could and when cutting picture frames the joints were tight and I was satisfied that the calibration was pretty close to being correct. However, when the six parts that were cut at 30 degrees and put together, the fit revealed that error still existed in my callibration attempt, the error was slight, but it was still there.
I am now looking at the Kreg miter gauge and the propagande says that the calibration is done at the factory. I'm wondering if anybody out there has any experience with this tool that would indicate it to be superior to the Incra product. An error of .001" out of square would become .012" after six cut and that is an very unexceptable error.
Right now, my remedy is to glue up two halfs of three parts per half which creates two halfs, one that is done, the TS is used to just kiss the the exposed edges that are to be glued together, and this eliminates the slight error, but it seems to me that having the gauge properly calibrated would eliminate the need to use the TS to clean up the error.
