I used a very simple design with this jig. There was very little time involved and it cuts 45s perfectly. It took a little thought trying to figure out how to get the fence dead on. I came up with a simple solution. I got the fence as close as possible with a combination square, then i placed a carpenters square against the fence and clamped it to the sled. Then i simply glued the fence in place using the carpenters square as a guide. The fence is probably not at a perfect 45 to the blade, however the fence makes a perfect 90. Therefore as long as each side of joint is cut on opposite fence, joint is always a perfect 90. Thanks to all who have posted on cutting miters. Your info helped me figure this one out. I killed a few too many brain cells on something that turned out to be very simple.
