Topic tags/keywords: miter gauge

Don’t know if this is the right place for this, but I was looking around last night on the web. Went to Osborne’s web site and they currently have their EB-3 miter gauge on sale for 119.95 with free shipping. Been wanting one for a while now after I read all the good reviews here and other sites. Mine is one the way. I figured if Norm uses it….why not me. Can’t wait.

I got one last summer to use on my 70s vintage table saw and I can’t believe how accurate it makes that old saw cut. I finally get constantly square cuts every time. I also love the functionality of the stop mechanism as well as the ease of fine adjustments down to fractions of a degree. This thing has almost turned this old wood hack into a somewhat respectable woodworker.

The EB-3 is my favorite between my Incra V27 and Jet/Woodhaven Deluxe. Great service from Osborne too.

I ordered one from Osborne also and took advantage of their Wixey digital angle gauge sale. UPS says they will deliver it on Thursday. That is if the snow storm doesn’t interfere again.

Got it today! I off this weekend so I’ll get to try it out. So far I am impressed. I feels solid as a rock. Bob, I did read your review and that kinda sealed the deal for me. Very well written. Thanks
