I have been offered an incra 200 and like it but I have been told they are not so good as the 1000se etc what do you have and why any gauge will do not just incra as this is a big purchase for me. Alistair

Alistair, I love my Osborne. I don’t have any experience with the Incra though, so I can’t compare.

I have been thinking of buying a Incra too since I bought my new saw. The Incra 2000 looks good specially for my sliding table. BUT I change my mind then I read a article on the net that said there was some play in the bolts and so on on the Incra 2000.
So now my eyes is set on the Incra 1000 or Incra 1000 HD, I just need a bussines trip to US so I can buy one for a good price.:-)

Charlie my understanding is The osbourne is not sold here in the UK or Europe seems a bit sad but then that’s often the case, also I think only the head would do me my table saw slot is too wide so I would need to alter make a bigger slot piece perhaps also with the incra I don’t know thanks buddy I wrote directly to them re sending this to the UK to see if it was true but they have not answered me. $99.00 seems good I wonder what postage would be though.

I have had the 2000 and the 1000….. I sold the 2000 with the old saw table and bought a 2000 with the new cabinet saw table I also use the TSLS 32 on both tables…...I did not have any problems with either of them…
I have a lot of Incra gear and love it all…
Hope this is of some help…

Larry degoose I had the incra dovetail jig the big one sold it for shirt buttons as I found it diddn’t work for me except on box joints which it did well but I despite trying never got any real joy to my satisfaction with dovetails. Alistair

I have the 1000SE and the 5000 sled, love them both. Absolutely zero slop once you get them dialed in for your machine, and very accurate. I also have the “original Incra Jig” on my router table fence, and I think it’s great also.

Thanks August I never heard of a 3000 maybe i’ve just forgotten . I have to weigh these up against the superb industrial mitre gauge that came with my new a wadkin saw well used but new for me a really superb saw all 590 kilos of it with sliding table,if they don’t excell this wadkin gauge then I’ll stick with what I have the wadkin is 90 degree in the cetre the fixed stops each side 15 then 30 then 45 to both left and right so thats my only problem whether I would ever use all the fancly ones with minutes and seconds on them LOL Alistair

Alistair – with a sliding table build into your saw, what do you need a miter gauge for?

personally I have the incra SE1000 and it is a great miter gauge. the 3000 is the same body just longer fence. Incra makes superb products.
