I own a Dewalt 745 10” contractor saw and am looking to upgrade the POS miter gauge that came with the saw. I was thinking of getting an Incra 1000SE as I like the features of it and I’ve read great things about it. Just before I made the purchase I read a comment which made me hesitate and so now I’m looking for help/advice.
The comment stated the 1000SE would not be good on a portable saw like mine because if the relatively short table space in front of the blade – they felt it would limit its use to cutting only very small pieces of lumber. What do you think? If I planned on cutting a wider board would it render the gauge useless or would I just need to be careful in guiding the miter bar in the miter slot until all of the unit and board were seated on the table?
Would it be any better or functional to get a smaller more basic gauge (ie, Incra V120)? It doesn’t have all the neat bells and whistles I like on the 1000se but if it would somehow be better, I am open to suggestions.
Any help would be huge. Thank you guys!
