My table saw is ridgid r4516, a portable jobsite saw
http://www.ridgid.com/Tools/R4516-Table-Saw/EN/index.htm

I am wondering if incra miter 5000 is a over kill to the table saw. I am kind of wondering if this jig fits my table saw very well due to small table size

Thanks

as long as your TS has the standard 3/4”x3/8” miter slots you should be fine with the 5000 although you may not get the full travel capacity it can offer.

you can also check out the MiterExpress from Incra which is similar, just smaller in table size. might be a better fit for your saw.

When you upgrade your table saw you’ll be ready with the Incra.

I have an Incra on a fold away Bosch and it works well.

I might have purchased an Osborne had I’d known about it. LJ’s has a lot
of great info!

Yeah buddy.

I have an Incra LS combo and have been drooling over the 5000 for a while. Don’t know anything about Your portable saw but I assume the table is smaller than the standard 27” and I hope it has the correct size T slots(miter). The 5000’s table might be a little big for your saw. The miter fence is 36” and extends to 64” – that might be awkward if you don’t have extensions. Might want to look at the Miter Express. Personally I would prefer the 5000 because it is almost the same price as the Miter Express and a miter gauge. -Jack

Thanks for all your help.

The 5000 is fact cheaper than buying two items separately, miter express and miter gauge, since I have a 20% off coupon for a single item from rockler. That’s why I am debating on this.

Anyway, I will buy the incra miter 5000.

what I like about the express is that it breaks down to the sled, and a regular miter gauge.

also, if you already have a miter guage, it’ll fit into the incra express.

just some info… I’m sure you know what you need better than I do, but putting out $0.02 more on the table
