    Segmented Miter Question

    I saw the following ad on wood workers supply.com

    http://woodworker.com/cgi-bin/FULLPR...7&go=5555IRW8H

    GET ACCURACY, BATCH WORK CAPACITY AND PLENTY OF STOCK SUPPORT WITH THE DEWALTŪ PRECISION MITER GAUGE - $89.99

    DeWaltŪ Heavy Duty precision miter gauge is an easy way to get improved performance from your table saw. The 24" long back fence provides generous stock support, and a flip down stop allows for easy repeatable cut to length operations. Positive detents at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 30° and 45° make angle set up quick, and the miter bar has expansion slots to adjust for any play in the miter slot. Imported.

    Wondering if it is any good for making angle cuts for segmented?

    Triangular design for rock solid accuracy.
    24" back fence provides plenty of stock support.
    Flip-down stops for repetitive cuts.
    Large miter scale for easy angle adjustments.
    Positive detents at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 30° and 45°.
    Miter bar expansion slots for snug adjustment.
    Two year manufacturer's warranty.

    I got email today selling that item. To me it looks like an Osborn with a different paint job. I've got the Osborn and really not that impressed with it
    Aloha,

    Royall, I'm an Incra fan, but I always assumed the Osborne was nice. What sort of complaints do you have about it?

    BTW, I just noticed that Osborne has a limited time offer on their site for the EB-3 for $110.

    Dan, I agree with Vaughn about Incra. I have the 1000 and the 5000. Very accurate and I feel safe cutting smaller pieces.

    I'm not familiar with any of these systems and would be inclined to make my own sled. Although Incra does make a good product.
