I wanted to add to the mitre gauge posts. Wayne posted a photo tour of the Jessem System, and David posted initial impressions of the Kreg System.

The incra 1000SE is seen here in the Incra Miter Express sled. Both are available at Woodpeck.com You can see the kerf where the mitre sled straddles the blade in the tablesaw allowing for the cutoff piece to be coplanar with the workpiece. This decreases the chance of the saw flinging the cutoff piece back.

The Incra guage is adjutable in half degree incriments with detents every 5 degrees from +90 to -90 degrees.

The mitre bar is extendable for longer cross cutting applications by loosening a set screw and extending the bar.

The stop block is microajustable with both gross movement, and ultra fine movement for repeated cuts.

The mitre gauge easily moves to +/- 90 degrees and is stabilized in the sled with two set screws. These are not necessary but they are a nice addition. The mitre gauge moves forward or back in the sled in order to always be able to support the workpiece.

The sled has a hold down that slides along it’s entire width for stock of varying widths and thicknesses.

Here is a video of the operation of the sled:

Tom -

Another excellent K & T Woodworking video episode! The Incra is an awesome system. Thanks so much for this posting! Looks like that new camera is working out well. Excellent job linking the three systems. I think this will be a good resource for anyone looking at a miter gauge upgrade.

Great Video Tom. I have outfitted my sliding table with the incra track so that I can use the micro adjust and I’ve also put the extension slider in each end of my track so that I can extend it closser to the blade.

When I extend the extension on the left I can go greater than 8’ so I can make cutoffs from plywood to the 1/32” scale.

I like incra systems.

I hear at the end of the video I referred to “David’s Jessem Setup.” I meant, of course, Wayne’s. I have to start scripting these. I was laughing at the beginning…not only the headless woodworker, but the stacatto woodworker. I started the videotaping and forgot what the sled was called so I was trying to read the sticker with the sun glarring at me. LOL…The biggest tool in my shop is me. Thanks for watching!

Hi Tom:

I was wondering about the extra table on the right side of the blade. Does that table slide forward with each cut or is it pretty much stationery. Magnet, snug fit or something????

This is the second time I’ve come back to the video….......this winter I plan on more solid wood and my excalibur mitre fence gets in my way. If I go with your Incra here, I can still rip panels, but not have to deal with my current fence which is great for sheet goods, best word would be “clumbsy” with smaller solid wood pieces.

Thanks…...................Neil

Hi Neil,

The right hand table has a guide that fits into the right hand mitre slot. The table gets positioned before the cut, but does not slide with the cut. I hope that helps.

Tom

Tom – just when I’m ready to watch this (I’ve been putting off getting a decent miter gauge), the video doesn’t seem to play. Any way to fix it? The intro and end are there but no middle Incra content…

I’ll take a look at it Dorje. There was another video that doesn’t seem to be playing on Jumpcut, either. I may have to move them all to Blip.

Thanks for fixing this up – that was a ton better than the Incra promo video (which gives you 28 seconds of info – just not enough). What a great complement to the text reviews I’ve read…

Thanks Tom!
