  • Miter gauge sale, anyone have one?

    Shopping around for some time now for a better miter gauge, I found this one and looked pretty appealing to me, and the price acceptable, especailly on sale. After looking through all my favorites, this one ends up at the top of my list.

    I have it's shorter fence brother, the 1000. The 1000 is a significant improvement
    over the standard miter gauge, especially for miters. The 1000 SE's longer
    fence makes it's more attractive than the 1000. However, I recently
    purchased a Dubby cross-cut miter sled and use it more almost all of my cross
    cuts. It sells for about $190.

      I was also looking at a few guages

      Saw Norm use an Osborne mitre guage this weekend. Looked pretty nice and had something like a 40" extension to one side with a stop for repeat cuts.

      Has anyone else used this guage. Was looking at an Incra too, but whatever I buy, it's gotta be good and last.

        I also have the 1000--old version--and love it. Nice thing for Rigid/Emerson saw owners, it easily adjusts to fit the narrower miter slots.

        My own personal preference is a fairly light weight gauge---I picked up the 2000 and 3000 and IMO they were too heavy to be shoving around.

        Many, including myself, would say to avoid the 2000, since you can only make adjustments on one side---which will soon become frustrating.

        BTW---I bought mine last year for $90 at Woodcrafts' 10% off sale which is going on on Feb. 27th.

          Just got that email today on the Woodcraft 10% off deal. Since my birthday is the 25th, wife said I could buy any ONE tool that I really want. Now, that is the meanest thing she's ever done to me. ONE? How can a man decide which ONE? Talk about headache!
          My wish list is longer than I am tall!

            I have one, got it last year from woodpeckers also. A great tool and a great tool to work with. I also got the 30" fence to go with it.
            I wish I had as much time to do woodworking as I spend reading and thinking about it!

              Another positive for the 1000SE. I bought mine at a woodworking show last October and really love it. It's a major improvement over the stock miter gauge. Dave

                I have had the 1000se for about 3 months. I do not use the miter saw in my shop now I just use that.
                This thing is dead nuts accurate!

                I paid $132.00 I think

                    Has anyone had a problem with the Osborne's miter bar being too wide for their Ridgid? When talking to Rockler on the phone there was an application note about needing a smaller bar (available from Osborne) to fit the Craftsman saws and didn't know if it applied to us'ms.

                    Rockler has a pretty good deal on the Osborne with a 26" fence.

                    Any input from ya'll?

                    Thanks,

                          I spoke with Osborne last week. I was told that they use bar stock at .744 in order to fit the Ridgid saws out there. Any adjustment needed to fit the larger slots can be done with the adjustments.

                            Just received my new Incra 1000se miter guage yesterday. This evening I got to set it up and play with it. All I can say is WOW! This thing is incredibily accurate and very easy to use. When I compare it to the miter guage that came with my TS2400, the difference is night and day.
