Sorry Joe, but those jigs would take all the fun out of fixing the fit. ;-)

Yes, it’s a little pricy…. BUT, just think of all of the frustration LOST in beating your head against the wall to get a Perfect fit of a segmented polygon… or a perfect 45* miter ALL of the time!

If you don’t have problems in getting those, no problem, you are GOOD! ... no sense in buying this!

I wish I could say that… :)

Neat. Price for the set isn’t bad compared to similar precision jigs.

I was not aware of it Joe. Very impressive jig. If one wants perfect miters every time it’s well worth the price. I will have to check it out further.

For close to the same money, you can buy an Incra replacement miter gauge that is superior in every way to nearly all OEM miter gauges IMHO. I have had the 1000HD for 10 years or more and it is as accurate now as it was when I bought it. There are other brands for a similar price that I have heard are also good.

Very interesting, while I agree with some of the other comments on Inca miter gauge, which i have. I think the segmented set might have some some real value in it. I’m about to make the easy sled and use the wedges. I think that will work well, if not I might go this route. Thx for sharing.

I own the basic version of it. Bought it a few years ago. It doesn’t come out much. Handy on occasion, but not enough to justify the now even more inflated price.

Are we working with exotic space age metals or living, breathing, swelling and shrinking wood?

We buy the sharpest cleanest cutting blades, set our expensive miter jigs to .0000001 degree of accuracy, making sure the material is exactly 8% moisture content, in our surgically clean, air conditioned workshop, numbering each piece with sequential accuracy to assure matching grain, then press the finely cut joints together with a water filled glue. Then this glue which is applied in a slightly uneven thickness undetected by the naked eye is squeezed to even more unseen miss thickness to be absorbed randomly between summer and winter growth rings and changing the moisture content uncontrollably and coincidentally the smooth clean cut surface we worked so hard to produce.

ALAS, my foolish Igor, we must pray for a lightning storm to give life to our patient lying helpless on the table!

P.S. That was fun and thank the gods for sandpaper.

+1 on the Incra, I have the 1000SE, which has replaced the one on the saw.

But it does look kool.
