I swear by Woodhaven. Rock damn solid. Perfect miters and cross cuts every single time.

Osbourne, simple to use, it really works, and very durable , and a little less expensive than most of the others.

Great. Thanks for the input. One note on the Incra units. I used the 1000SE previously and had a bit of an issue squareing the face of the rail to the saw top. When tightening the two cap screws that hold the fence to the head it would pull the face out of square. Incra owners noticed similar issues?

“Best” always boils down to opinion. I’ve got an Osborne EB-3 and an Incra that I’m really happy with. I also had a Woodhaven Deluxe that’s built like a tank and performed admirably, but was more cumbersome to change angles on than most other gauges. Check out as many as you can and go with what you like.

I did not want to sell the farm so I just got an Incra V120 on sale for $55 at Rockler.

Incra 3000. Solid, easy to use, and the 1/2 degree adjustment sometimes comes in handy.

I’m glad you asked this question. I’m in the market as well. Unfortunately, I had it narrowed down the the Incra and Osbourne, lol:)
