Most stationary tablesaws come with a no-frills, three-stop miter gauge that’s adequate, but leaves me wanting more.…
Unfortunately, many elaborate, aftermarket upgrades cost $150 or more to gain precision at every angle. Enter Incra’s mid-priced V120 miter gauge that provides 120 spot-on angle settings, with notches for all whole-number degrees between 61° left and right. (There are no notches for 22° and 23° on either side to allow for a notch at 22-1 ⁄2°.) A protractor confirmed the accuracy of every setting at which we made a cut. That’s worth the price right there. Plus, you adjust the miter bar with top-side adjusters, so you can leave it in the miter slot while fine-tuning the fit. Adding to its value are nylon adjusters on the bar with top-adjusting screws to quickly snug up the fit in the miter slot, as well as a removable T-slot clip. And with a slippery- smooth plastic plate underneath the head, the V120 glides across cast-iron tops. Slots in the head’s face make it easy to attach an auxiliary fence.
