There are different types of miter gauges to be sure. The other post about
the Osborne is a good recommendation for a high end miter gauge. For a lower
end (and lower cost) miter gauge I would recommend the Incra V27, it
doesn't have a pointer that floats over a protractor dial, it has teeth that
lock in the same spot every time. You can check it out here:
I have an incra V27 and I belive for a standard miter gauge it has no equal.
I have an Incra Miter 2000 with the 18" fence that I keep set up for use on
the right side of my table saw blade. I like having one set up for the right
side for when I do bevel cuts.
There are also miter sleds out there. I have the Jointech SmartMiter. You
have to see one of these to believe them. You can view a video demonstration
of it's capabilties at this Jointech web site:
Again it depends on what you want to do with your miter gauge and how much
you can spend. But for a basic style I don't think you will find any thing
better than the Incra V27, in the more advanced miter gauge, the Osborne is
probably a better miter gauge than my Incra 2000. For a miter
sled.........the Jointech SmartMiter has no equal.
