This is perfect for jigs
I use these bars for my cross cut sled, and all of my jigs. The set screws give me a tight miter track fit with zero slop. Stop wasting time milling runners that will expand seasonally and buy these. You will be happily surprised.
Best one in my comparison
Finally, an accurate miter bar! I bought three different miter runners made by two manufacturers (all items sold by Woodcraft) for a crosscut sled, and this Kreg runner is my pick of the bunch. Two features make it the best 1) it's longer (30") than the other two runners, and 2) the 8 adjustment spots to adjust for accurate fit in a miter track allow for a no-slop fit throughout its travel. It uses 8 threaded nylon inserts for adjusting fit, (not 6 as mentioned in the description). After a simple adjustment, it runs freely in the slot and still has almost no side-to-side play. The other manufacturer's runners don't have as many adjustment points for fit, so there's a little more sideways slop as the bars run the length of the slot. The fact that the Kreg is 30 inches long also helps accuracy. I still have the other two miter runners (one extruded aluminum bar with jam wedges underneath that adjust the width, and one steel bar with plastic adjustment disks for width), but this Kreg is the one that I'll use.
