    Inca band saw jig

    Not sure if this is in the right spot...
    Looking for an Inca type fence/jig for a band saw, specifically a Griz 0555. Not going tablesaw...just need something for the band saw.
    Thanks for the links.

    I'm guessing you mean Incra, not Inca?

    What type of stuff are you wanting to do with the Incra jig? The typical Incra jig controls the position of the fence. I haven't seen a straightforward way to use one on a bandsaw. Incra also makes a very nice miter gauge for making angled cuts. One of those should work well on your bandsaw, since your table has the 3/4" wide miter slots in it.

    I've got a kreg for my bandsaw, Not sure if it's heavy duty enough for your saw though.

    I need to cut some angle on small pieces...my mitre gauge is to far away from the blade to be effective for what I want to do.

    an you add a sacrificial piece wood to your miter gauge like a piece of MDF?

    Are there holes or slots on the miter gauge fence to allow you to attach an auxiliary fence? Doesn't need to be anything fancy...just a straight piece of wood.



    If you want to be able to set the angles accurately, I'd heartily recommend one of the Incra miter gauges. The one in the pic is the V27. They also make several other models, but the V27 is simple and relatively inexpensive.
