I love my Osborne Miter Gauge but every time I need it, I dread the fact that it is probably buried under something and then I have to put it back somewhere it doesn’t really belong. It is too big for most drawers and I really like to have it really close at hand when at the table saw.

Now I just reach up and there it is!

Joe, that’s why I hung it from the ceiling above the table saw. No wall space left. LOL

And now I have a Cross hanging above me. Can’t hurt when at the saw. LOL

Dave,

OK… OK!

I see it NOW… at first, it looked like it was wall mounted (with the 2nd. pic not rotated right)...

Very good… I hang other jigs & clamps from rafters… will have to give this one some thought… right now it’s here or there wherever it ends up… & sometimes hard to find! LOL

Thank you!

That’s really a good idea. Just remember it’s up there when you carry a long board in there

Good idea—storage is always a challenge and you solved that one quite well.

@Roger…yes, that is a good point. Fortunately, it only hangs down a little below the garage door, (seen in the backdrop of the first pic). Also, because it is directly over the middle of the table saw, I won’t be walking under it. :)
