Shortly after completing my shop in 2003, I bought an Incra V27 Miter-gauge. This adjustable Miter-gauge fence I made for it has been one of my most used accessories. I use it mostly on the band saw, but also on the table saw and router table. When I made the fence, I had no thick lumber, so I glued together two pieces of 3/4” oak – then reduced its thickness to about 1-1/8”. The overall length is about 15” land the height is 2-1/4”. The two threaded stud knobs combined with the aluminum track lets me quickly adjust the fence as needed.

The first of the following two photos show the holder I made for the front of the bandsaw cabinet. and the second shows the gauge in its holder.

NOW you’ve done it.

You’ve made a really beautiful and functional piece of equipment (the V27) even MORE beautiful and functional.

Might just have to steal your idea. Very nicely done!

Very nice. I have the Incra Miter gague but it has an aluminum fence that doesn’t look nearly as nice as the one you built. I like your storage holder also.

Nicely done Dave. Just from seeing your saw table top, I expect you have a very well maintained and equipped shop. It’s wonderful to see and something to aspire to.

Looks good Dave. I need to make a holder for my miter gauge and yours look like a good idea. Thanks for the inspiration.

God Bless
