Miter gauges are an invaluable addition to your table saw for serious woodworkers. I would jump on this if I wasn't starting out and had just bought a precision fence and dado set. Looks like the HD is one of the best deals at 22% off. Hopefully these will come back on sale after my wife's memory fades.

Seems the prices on these have been going up. When I bought my 1000HD it was $119. Back then it felt like a stretch, at $169 I wouldn't have been interested. There are other options out there like the Kreg ($149, not on sale) that offer the same functionality for less and once I built my sled, I almost never use this except on my router table.

The base model seems like an ok price.

Do not use the fence when doing miters/crosscuts and you practically eliminate the risk of kickback.

If you do need to use the fence for a stop block, clamp a block of wood to it before the blade so that the piece you cut off has some space and won't get pinched between the blade and fence.

I bought the HD version of this on CL in great condition for $69, and honestly, I overpaid. It's a fine quality tool, but the only real use for this in a woodshop is if you don't have another way to cut a repeatable, precise length and precise angle miter. I tend to do that on the miter saw with a stop block...

I agree with the others on a table saw miter fence. I threw a stop block and adhesive-backed measuring tape on mine. Set it to 8", make 12 passes through the saw, done.

I haven't been into woodworking for a long time but every cross cut I've needed to make I've been able to do on a miter saw. Whats the benefit to a nice miter gauge and cross cutting on a table saw vs just doing cuts on the miter saw?

Just curious for general knowledge.

Interesting question, I'd like to know as well. I don't have room for a miter saw so I'm in for one of these basic ones.

Accuracy and the ability to do finer cuts are two of the main reasons. The miter saw is great if tuned correctly and more importantly if it stays tuned but I use mine mostly for cleaning up edges and quick cross cuts. Miter gauge/sled for precision.

Precision and cut quality. Miter saws have some movement in the hinges and slides (if equipped) that can result in less precise cuts. With a good miter gauge with a good adjustable miter bar and a good saw with good miter slots. you can dial it in to get zero slop and absolutely perfect miter cuts every time. Add a nice crosscut blade and zero clearance insert, the cut quality will be awesome.

I have a cabinet saw and incra gauge, so about the only time I use one of my miter saws in the shop is for cutting pieces that are too long to comfortably cut on a table saw and for the odd compound cut (though this can be done on the table saw, the blade tilt is a little more finicky in comparison).

I would double check Amazon. Prices have been kind of around here very often. I've watched them for a while. If you can use the Rockler 20% Coupon or other coupons at Rockler, then its a pretty solid deal if you need it. Some Rockler stuff is well priced, but I've often found their same things elsewhere for a fraction of the cost. These though are fair at $90, but shoot for the coupon if possible.

Others have chimed in, but I'll add It also depends on what you cut.

If you are cutting anything wider than 16" or so, I go right to the table saw sled vs my sliding miter. It cost me like $10 to make, but the sled offers precision and more importantly, precision over a very long cut. If I'm doing cabinets or furniture, the miter saw won't cut it. For slicing a quick 2x4-12, the miter saw can't be beat.

These are cool, but I really have no need. I'll eventually break down and make an adjustable miter sled, and then my life will be complete.

Thanks for the replies! I've only worked with cheap stuff like plywood, 2x4, pallet and reclaimed wood doing shop projects and stuff for the camp and blinds. So nothing that has to be to fancy. I haven't gotten into any detailed stuff or working with nicer hardwoods yet so i guess i don't quite need this now. Maybe ill jump on it next time.
