Purchased a new Osborne Mitre Guide today to replace the old protractor type that originally came with the saw. Seems to be really well built by General International.

I’ve drooled over this particular type because it seems to be the best value and very accurate. Keep us posted on how you like it.

Dan checked out your website, nice work, looking forward to doing that myself full time, in a couple more years.

I have two of these and would say they are excellent value, even after GI bought out the original manufacturer and shipped production offshore. But they’re still a miter gauge and hence only good for fairly small pieces.

I have an Excalibur crosscut sliding table for big parts . The Osborne miter guide is excellent for the smaller parts. It is also good at angular cuts as well. Quick accurate angles!
