I feel like such an amature right now.
I got a new Router Table which I mounted on my Jet table saw, only to realize it didn’t have a miter gauge slot. So, I picked up a gauge track, cut the slot with my router and mounted the track. It was only then that I realized all my cheap miter gauges were smaller non-standard gauges. I have a sliding table gauge for the table saw so I hadn’t invested in anything better.
I came on here today to get some opinions on gauges when I saw posts saying they never use the miter gauge track on their router table. Well.. I’m stumped on how you get by without it. I use my router table for drawer corners and stiles. Without the miter gauge to keep the piece straight I can see problems like chipout. Is there a better solution that I’m missing?
