Hi everybody, I just wanted to let you all know that I picked this up yesterday for $120 on Amazon. They have it at Rockler too, as an online only sale.

I saw it for this price last year around the holidays, but didn’t commit fast enough. Well the deal came back and I got it this time. It’s $70 off MSRP, $50 off the usual price and $20-$30 cheaper than the 1000 SE, go figure.

I plan on doing a review when I get enough time with it, but really looking forward to trying it out after all the rave reviews.

Happy Holidays!

Mine showed up a few days ago. I was gonna get the SE, as I couldn’t justify paying for the extra features in the HD, which I will probably never use, however, when Amazon put it up for way cheaper than the SE, it was a done deal. I’m gonna give it a go this weekend.

I bought one too! Should be here tomorrow. I’m excited to have a worthy miter gauge with stop block and the whole works. Now I just need to build a good crosscut sled to add into the rotation

I bought one on a previous Amazon sale about a year ago or so for my Unisaw. Works great. I have a 1000 SE set up for my Bosch 4100 and I like it too. Too bad the Bosch miter slot is just a little oversize compared to the Unisaw.

Some things it pays to be patient on.

I currently have the INCRA Miter V120 miter gauge, which was a huge step up from the OEM gauge that came with the saw. Why should I upgrade? I’m definitely interested, but I’m wondering if someone can convince me. :-)

when i get tired of my incra 1000se, i’ll get an osborne eb3. i find the higher end incras to be just a little too finicky to set up and operate.

I have the Incra 1000HD, but never use it any more, having built a more accurate TS sled. I guess this thing is good for crosscutting small pieces, those under ~15in or so, so I am NOT knocking these miters. I have found longer pieces to flex the extruded aluminum fence. Never could get any cuts better than 1/32in off on pieces ~24in long.

Just saying that there are cheaper and very accurate ways to get by without breaking the bank.

I had seen this in the sale in the Rockler ad but since we don’t live anywhere close to a Rockler I went to see if Amazon had it on sale too. Sure enough they did. I told my wife I wanted it for Christmas so hopefully she was listening and already has it under the tree. This was a couple of weeks ago so move quickly before they bump the price back up!

I got the same deal last year from Rockler.
All you need now is the miter express from incra sled.
