I got the Kreg Miter gauge for my birthday, it’s great. I taught a segmented turning class at Woodcraft and I was going to show how to fix if your segments are not perfect, 1 cut 16 pieces and put them together and no gap, so much for that idea. It comes perfect from the factory, if you aren’t getting perfect angles your saw needs adjusting. It cuts accurately to a tenth of a degree, I highly recommend it.

It is no doubt a great tool, kreg makes good stuff but I have 5 Incra miter gauges, too late to switch over

I have this miter gauge and find very accurate and it makes segments for rings perfect. This cuts out that step of gluing the ring into two halves and sanding the halves to meet. The miter gauge is worth the price.

Sounds like a good thing to own.

UPDATE, the only downfall to the miter gauge is the pin that holds the gauge at preset angles is loose and can fall out and get lost. After I dug through the sawdust under my table saw I found the pin. I modified it by drilling a small hole and attaching a piece of string to hold it to my miter gauge.

Not a bad idea I had to look for pin a couple times myself.

How dare Kreg send out a a miter gauge that requires no adjustment. That just takes away from frustration level a tad bit. Congrats, I have considered the purchase of one.

Have the same miter gauge, sure increased the accuracy of Old Delta TS!
