Topic tags/keywords: ryobi bts10 miter gauge

I just purchased a used Ryobi BTS10 table saw, minus the miter gauge (which is why I got it so cheap).

It looks like the miter gauge for this saw is no longer in production, and close to impossible to order. Anyone happen to know how standard the specs/dimensions are for miter gauges from saw to saw? Would I be able to possibly use a miter gauge from another table saw for the BTS10, or am I SOL?

(and, Sears cannot order it even though they have it listed on their site)
“Slot of gauge is 5/8-Inch width and 7/32-Inch thickness. 11-Inch long, 7-Inch wide, and 6-Inch high.”

Thanks for any insight.

Make a tablesaw crosscut sled you will be happy with it. It will be better than the miter gauge.

The crosscut sled is a terrific idea, BUT… there are times when a sled just won’t do. I have four and still use a miter gauge for a lot of work. Try one of the good aftermarket suppliers like Incra or Woodpeckers or Kreg, Jessum or JDS AccuMiter etc to see if they have a gauge with a bar that will fit your slot. They all make great miter gauges that have adjustable bars in some cases to help mitigate any slop beteen the bar and the slot. I use an Incra 1000SE gauge with an aux fence/stop system and am very happy with the performance. They are a little more costly than say an OEM miter gauge for the saw, but well worth the spare change in accuracy and repeatability. Build the sled too. Wm. Ng has a great video on his website about building and setting up a sled for maximum accuracy. It is the best video for this subject that I have found. Good luck, work safely and have fun!
