Scott shows us some variations of the crosscut sled, uses and a couple other ideas using the KREG Precision Miter Gauge System.
very nice tool
other than the assembly being somewhat tedious, once assembled it is a great tool, very precise and accurate cuts.
Nice but too much flex
This miter gauge is very accurate and beautifully made except for one important problem: the t-slot bar is aluminum and has too much flex. I bought this miter gauge to dado slots in the sides of a chest of drawers because I was getting some flex with the miter gauge that came with my Delta Contractor table saw (and has a steel bar). When I saw that the flex was worse with this one I put it aside and went back to the original. It should be fine for smaller pieces that do not stress it as much.
Great Table Saw addition
Just bought a new table saw - this miter gauge provides a great way to get up to speed on cross cuts immediately
I have already used the miter gauge on my old table saw and it has improved the accuracy of my cuts and allowed me to make cuts on smaller pices of wood than I would otherwise have attempted. It has improved the safety of my use of the saw. I am sure as i devlope my skills I will come up with more and more techniques with this tool.
Design and manufacture problems
After installing the handle, the miter head is angled down and the face is no longer at 90 degrees to the miter bar. I emailed Kreg and was told a washer was added to make miter adjustment easier and my miter head was not milled correctly. New miter heads are angled to compensate for the washer. I was told a "correct" miter head would be shipped. I have not received it after a couple of weeks. In addition, this does not correct the problem of added strain to the miter head/bar attachment point when the handle is installed. Milling the miter head at an angle to compensate for a washer does not seem to be a viable corrective solution. If the problem is not corrected soon, it will be returned.
Possible Accuracy Issue
Accuracy in question: On assembly of the first step I encountered an issue with tightening the handle into the Miter head. When the handle is tightened the miter head face is torqued out of square. This is due to the miter head not riding flush on the miter bar. I am in contact with Kreg to determine if this is a factory assembly issue or a design issue.
