All right I get to pick out my own fathers day gift this year, I’ve already picked up flourescent lighting (75 watt bulb in not enough) I have a compressor lined up, for future purchase of nail guns (my wife think it’s for her to be able to blow out the vaccuum filters, shhh dont say anything). All this is used and kind of utilitarian. I dont currently have a miter gauge and would really like to pick up a nice one. I cant spend $250 for the over the top units but I’m thinking $50-$60ish. I’ve looked at the Incra V27 but figured I’d get some experienced advice before I pull the triggger. I’m saving a little bit for a trip next week to the northwest where I hope to get a couple hours to visit Bridge City.
Thanks in advance

I’m buying the beefier model of this same miter gauge, so many woodworkers say that INCRA are the best.

Kregg makes a gauge much like the one above that also has great appeal :)

Sorry to dredge up an older post, but I thought I’d chime in with my $.02

I have no firsthand experience with the Incra miter gauges, but I know alot of guys love them. The one you’re looking at is probably plenty accurate, but I thought I’d mention the EB3. It about double the cost, but you get more with it (nonskid workpiece support, builtin stop, etc). You can DIY all that with the Incra you’re looking at, but if those are important to you, then it’s at least worth a look. I did a reveiw on the EB3 a few months ago if you want to check it out.

Have your say...
