Cutting miter joints on a table saw can be hard. A standard miter gauge just doesn't offer the precision required to set accurate angles. More often than not you end up with annoying gaps, time spent sanding and wasted material.
Now you can combine MiterSet with your standard miter gauge. MiterSet is a category of miter gauge jig that quickly and easily sets your miter gauge to precise angles for cutting perfect miter joints every time.
MiterSet Standard is an aluminum plate bisected by a miter gauge slot. It has hole patterns for setting left and right angles up to 52.5°.
The number pattern on each plate sector represents 5° on your miter gauge. Slide your miter gauge into the miter slot. Place one pin at 00 and the other pin in the numbered hole that represents the degree angle you want to cut - right or left. Now slide your miter gauge against the two pins and lock it down. It's that simple. Your miter gauge will now cut perfect miter joints. No gaps. No sanding. No waste!
The detent bar is notched from .5° to 2.5° in .5° increments. Place the detent bar against the pins and allow the detent bar to recess against the angle that you would like to cut. For example, when the pin is set at 20 degrees and the detent bar is set at 2.5 degrees the total angle is 22.5 degrees. Slide your miter gauge against the detent bar and lock it down.
All components are proudly Made in the USA.
This product fits all standard miter gauges that require a .75" miter slot.
MiterSet is meant to be used with standard miter gauges that require a .75" miter slot. MiterSet may not work (with out adjustments) with some of the large precision gauges from Incra and Kreg.
MiterSet also is not compatible with table saws that have an inverted T-shape miter gauge bar (e.g., the Dewalt 745 and 748 contractor table saws) because the inverted T-shape miter gauge bar will not fit snugly in the miter slot in the plates. In order to use MiterSet with table saws that have such miter gauges, you must get an off-the-shelf miter gauge for your saw that has a flat bottom miter gauge bar.
