GlideLOCK Miter Bar
The expansion disks adjust both sides of the bar for ZERO side play, anti-friction travel on all table saws with standard 3/4" x 3/8" or near-standard miter gauge channels, including Delta, Craftsman, imports, etc. This means that all of INCRA's incredible precision will actually show up in your work because the bar CAN'T wiggle around in the miter slot.

This Special Edition Miter Fence telescopes from 27" to a full 49" length. Includes the Dual Flip Shop Stop and INCRA's patented Automatic Positioning Control.

AngleLOCK Indexing
Precision angle indexing teeth are laser cut in solid steel to lock in 364 positive angle stops in 1/2°, 1° or 5° increments over a full 180° range. it's also continuously adjustable between 1/2° steps.

WOOD magazine review

Incredibly accurate, but a little cumbersome

Review Summary

High points: Capable of setting 365 miter angles with detents (every 1/2° from 90° side-to-side, using a combination of two detent scales), this gauge seemingly can’t make an inaccurate cut once calibrated to the saw.
It uses the same fence stop as the Miter 1000HD, but its 27"-long fence extends to a test-topping 52". Low points: Setting miter angles other than those marked with detents every 5° or the 22.5° stops can be puzzling if you don’t do it often because you must first select a detent on the main scale to the nearest 5°, then use the secondary scale (page 55) to pinpoint the exact angle. Fence adjustments require the included hex wrench as on the Miter 1000HD. Its overall length and weight make it more cumbersome to use than other models with fences. More points: With a miter bar 2-1/2" longer than the Miter 1000HD, this gauge handles wider panels, but its longer, heavier fence causes it to drop and bind slightly more in the slot.
