Description

The Miter 5000 blends the incremental angle control features of the Miter 3000SE with a very special 3-panel Sled for the ultimate miter cutting workstation for the table saw.

A Renewable Right Panel provides zero-clearance tear-out control and cut-off support on Both sides of the blade. Two aluminum T-tracks are embedded in the MDF panel top to secure an included work piece hold-down clamp and to provide absolute rigid support for the 36" to 64" telescoping IncraLOCK Cut-off Fence. Will crosscut a 25" wide board with full control on a standard 10" table saw. The Miter5000 by INCRA delivers perfect, repeatable accuracy.

WOOD magazine review

Great accuracy, but heavy and sometimes awkward

Review Summary

High points: This sled uses Incra’s Miter 3000SE head assembly, and shares its high and low points. It also has a 36"-long fence with the same flip-stop that extends to 68". After cutting to fit your saw, the nonsliding cutoff platform helps keep workpiece cutoffs from dropping into the blade and ejecting toward you. Low points: This is the only sled that did not include nylon glide strips for easier sliding on the saw top.
As a result, the Miter 5000 frequently caught on the edge of our saw’s outfeed table. The included hold-down clamp sometimes pulled workpieces away from the fence when tightening. At just under 24" square and weighing just over 24 lbs, this sled can be a chore to lift and use. More points: You can turn the fence enough to make tapered rip cuts, but clamping workpieces securely in this setup requires at least one extra clamp.
