Hello . I was shopping in one of my favorite stores “Habitat Restore” , I go downstairs to the used tool area everytime to look. I spotted this miter for a table saw. I initually thought this fits my saws, BUT ” I have 4 already”, then walked away. Looking up and down other aisles kept thinking about it. It was only $1 AND I could use it to make slide for a larger cross cut sled. Back I went. It is now sitting on table saw doing a “Meet and Greet” with the other miters. I have one set for “True 90”, one for left 45, one for right 45, one has attachment clamp for tenons and now one that can be adjusted to any angle.

I too have ‘dedicated’ miter gauges that I never change the setting on. That looks like a nice addition the your ‘family’ (especially at that price).

Great selection of miter guages, I am definitely going to have to go look through the old stores here again
and see if there is not something interesting. I never thought about the dedicated guages, but it is a very
good idea.

No I have not named them yet. (They would send me to more therapy for that ) lol
The metal guide that fits my table saw works well, it already has 4 threaded holes to attach a sled, if I wish to.
I like the dedicated angles. Anytime I switch back and forth I fell room for error. Once these are SET…..Good to go (Just recheck them evey now and then)
