  • Incra vs. Kreg miter gauge

    I am looking at the incra and kreg miter gauges as an update for my table saw. I was just looking for some opinions on what gauge you guys favored.

    The Kreg looks nice but I've never used one. On the other hand, I own and am very happy with my Incra V27, though it benefits from adding a fence.

    A good friend has a Woodhaven Deluxe that's pretty impressive...definitely worth looking at.

      I've had my Kreg for almost a year and it has always been dead on accurate. I would buy it again if needed.

        Incra 1000SE is my recommendation.

          I like the Incra, too. The Kreg just looked too fiddly! Probably a bad way to make a decision. It's just that with the Incra, a single look and I could tell how it worked, what all was involved and etc.
          I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

                  Will the use of one of these telescoping miter guages essentially eliminate the need for my compound miter saw - at least for pieces only a few feet long or shorter??

                  I like THAT idea if my thinking is correct.

                    Hey, Incra 1000SE fans - How close to the saw blade does the 1000SE get? I see a measuring scale on it, and that would seem to be a nice feature, but how do you "calibrate" the scale to zero? Zero being contact with the blade!

                      I wouldn't go so far as to say it would eliminate the need for a CMS but personally I don't use my CMS as often as I used to since I got the 1000SE.

                      You can get it as close to the blade as you like. My preference is to have the end of the 1000SE that is closest to the blade 1" away from the blade. I then compensate for that 1" by adjusting where I place the stock against the fence on the miter gauge. I chose 1" only because it's easy to adjust where I place the piece that's being cut.

                          Another vote for the Incra 100SE. I looked at several miter gauges and decided on the Incra. I am very happy with it. Very well built and works as advertised.
