Description

The INCRA Miter 1000HD is the most refined model yet in the Miter 1000 series. The HD stands for High Definition, because the protractor plate's exclusive AngleLOCK Indexing System has a whopping 180 can't-miss angle stops in 1° increments with special stops located at 22-1/2°. Combine that high-resolution protractor with the industry's smoothest adjustable miter bar, a telescoping IncraLOCK Cut-off Fence & Flip Shop Stop, and a steel vernier scale that reads to 1/10°, and you've got a winner that will improve the quality of any project. Are you cutting parts for segmented turning? The Miter 1000HD will allow you to precisely set and quickly duplicate any angle you might need, whether it's 18° for cutting 10 sides, 25.7° for 7-sided objects, or anything else imaginable.

GlideLOCK Miter Bar
Six expansion disks adjust both sides of the bar for
ZERO side play, low-friction travel on all table saws with standard miter gauge channels, including Delta,
Craftsman, imports, etc. An excellent fit in the channel directly transfers the Miter 1000HD's incredible accuracy directly to your project. The Miter 1000's adjustable miter bar will fit square-sided miter slots measuring 3/4" wide, 3/8" deep, and with or without a 15/16" T-slot at the bottom. The miter bar's adjustment range accommodates actual slot widths between 0.740" and 0.765".

Telescoping IncraLOCK Fence
This Miter Fence telescopes from 18" to a full 31" length and features a front T-slot for adding a wooden zero-clearance sub fence. The Miter 1000HD's Flip Shop Stop is equipped with INCRA's patented incremental positioning racks for incredible cut-length accuracy and 100% day-to-day repeatability.

1/10th° Vernier Cursor
Precision angle indexing teeth are laser cut in solid steel to lock in positive angle stops every 1° over a 180° range, with special stops at 22-1/2°. A stainless steel vernier cursor delivers an incredible 1/10th° resolution between fixed steps.

180 Indexed Angle Stops Every 1° Over 180° Range
GlideLOCK Miter Bar Adjusts to Fit Any Standard Table Saw
1/10° Vernier Cursor

WOOD magazine review

Top Tool miter gauge

Review Summary

Our Top Tool in a review of 8 miter gauges High points: With 181 miter detents (90° right and left in 1° increments) and a secondary vernier scale, you can easily dial in angles as precise as .1°—a great help when cutting parts to fit an out-of-square assembly. The 18"-long fence telescopes out for crosscuts up to 34" long, and the stop works on the extension as well as the main fence.
The flip-stop has two independent, adjustable steps for cutting two different lengths in the same setup. As with the V120, you can fit the bar while it’s in the miter slot. A chart on the head provides quick reference to set angles for projects with 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, and 20 sides. Low points: We found it inconvenient to use the included ball-tipped hex wrench to make all adjustments to the fence and length-stop microadjuster.

Accurate and reliable miter gauge

Review Summary

I purchased this miter gauge about two years ago and it has been a well performer. Once assembled, it takes a few mintues to set-up and determine how to accurately use the miter gauge. Adjustments are easy and percise. This miter gauge is one of my most relied upon accessories to utilize with my table saw.

Great buy!

Review Summary

Picked this up on sale at Rocker and it was the best purchase for my shop. Once properly set up it is extremely accurate. Understanding the .1 deg. Set up is hard to grasp but once I slept on it it was like a light turned on and now is easily understandable. Instructions for this option could be more clear. Tool is very accurate and dependable. Found myself checking every measurement with a ruler at first but once the tool gained my confidance I no longer check.
Setup each time is fast and easy. I would recommend this tool and would repurchase again for myself. Got a really good deal at Rockler. This is one of those "why did I wait so long to buy it."

Review Summary

I bought this miter gauge a couple of years ago. I am having to make picture frames for some clients and didn't want to build a sled to cut the frames. As all of you know accuracy is paramount building picture frames. I used a square that was guaranteed accurate and wound up needing to use a feeler gauge to set the miter gauge square to the blade. Once this was done this thing cuts dead accurate 45° cuts, absolutely no gaps in the miter cuts.
