    Guess Who Showed Up Today

    Jake, my friendly UPS man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now I have to learn how to use Burt (my table saw) all over again. One new Incra Miter 1000 SE gauge and one 32" Incra Table Saw fence. I'm scared. I ordered them the same time I ordered my band saw and drill press. It took this long to get it. They said when I ordered they had about a 5 week backlog. Been many years since I bought some tool, feels real good, but this is it, nothing else I can think of that I need.

    I do have one disappointment already. Nylon screws on tools. I hate them! They do not belong!

    Congrats on the new tools Paul

    I'm pretty sure the nylon adjustment screws are to prevent steel screws from digging into the aluminum track.

    Congrats! I love my incra miter gauge. Can't even think about using the original one that came with the saw.

    You'll love it!

    Congrats. A good miter gauge can change your whole approach to how you use your tablesaw.

    Well I am NOT a HAPPY CAMPER. This new fence system should make me happy, right?! Well no, it makes me want the router table/fence system soooooo bad,, that I am trying to talk my wife into buying a $900 attachment for her sewing machine so she couldn't possibly complain if I bought the router setup!!! But really I just don't have the room either... but I could store it in another room and wheel it back and forth when I need it...

    Here is my table saw all suited up:

    Ha! Sounds like you've got a bad case of Incra-itis.

    You could always do what I did and build a router table extension for the left side of your saw. Then you can use the same Incra jig and rails for the router. I made myself a router table fence that attaches to the tablesaw fence. It has worked well for my needs.
