Redoing the SS miter gauge so it will work on the Dewalt..
When I got a SS a couple a months ago it was in pretty bad shape but I’ve since turned it into a drill dress sooo have no need for the miter gauge, plus the bar was bent.
My other SS didn’t come with one but since I won’t be using the table mod no problem.
OK to get to the point I love the SS miter gauge the holding fetcher the stops at 90 and 45, just one great tool, but I want to use it on my Dewalt, it’s miter is one of those cheap plastic one but it has a great aluminum bar.
I was working on another project and saw the SS and dewalt miters thrown over in a corner and it hit me can I switch the bars, so set then next to each other and the holes match up.
They use different size bolts but I have the technology I can rebuild em.
So to make the story a little shorter I marked I drilled and wala My SS miter works great on my dewalt saw.
See the two holes on the back of the SS bar these had to be added, so I took the part to my copier and now I have the marking for the new holes.
The pivot and locking holes had to be enlarged but they matched up perfectly.
About an hours project but now I have an out standing miter where non was before.
I may later get some bar stock and build a longer one but I think it will do just fine.
I need to reload the spring in the handle so it will stay in the open position.
