Question: What is the 45 tolerance of the Dewalt?
Steve are you buying for all Lumberjocks? When?

I will, but it might be a while before I get to Frisco :-((

Topamax- I’m sorry i’m not clear on your question. If your concerned about the accuracy of the saw being a true 45* i would follow the cut with a quick pass of a hand plane in a miter jack.I hope that answers your queston.

Kind of redundant with a laser guided miter saw.You should get out more.

Forget the laser. I never use them anyway. But why do you even need a Jig to do this on a Mitre Saw? Once you’ve taken the Jig off for whatever reason how do you get it back on in the EXACT place again?
I’ve done this Hundreds of times and never used, or needed a Jig to do it.
Table Saw? Different story.

I’m in agreement. I’ve never needed a jig on my miter saw. I do have several jigs hiding somewhere in my shop to cut miters on my table saw. Since getting a miter saw I haven’t used them in so long that I can’t even tell you where they are. As a matter of fact. I think those jigs are set of for my old Craftsman table saw that I don’t even own any more.I did try something similar to this one time with some cheap trim trying to reduce the splintering that happens sometimes on the backside. In the end I found that a zero clearance insert on my miter saw worked much easier for reducing the splintering.

I had always thought that the Miter saw was the “jig”.
With the addition of a decent hold down clamp and an accurate laser the modern CMS slider is all the jig I need for narrow width cutting and joining from silding to trim.

Hey no problem guys. If you don’t get it, you don’t get it. As for me, it saves a little bit of time when triming a whole house. But hey, to each, their own. Right? Have a good one fellas. Thanks for watchin’
