I recently restored an early 50s Delta Jr. Unisaw. However it didn’t come with an miter gauge. I decided to make one myself for now til I need a new one.

Its made out of clear pine scrap from a job we just finished up. It holds on 90 degree and 45 degree. It works great!

If it works then there is no reason to by a new one.

Thanks for the comments guys! If I ever get in a pickle where I need a different angle I may have to pick up a cheap one. But I don’t see that in the future soon!
