WOOD magazine review

Microadjustable accuracy and extendable fence

Review Summary

High points: Positive stops every 1⁄2°, and cutting angles for objects up to 20 sides shown on sled. The only sled we tested that can cut opposite miter angles without flipping the workpiece or reinstalling the fence. Fence scale proved reliably accurate at any miter angle. Great length repeatability, too, with 1/32" increments and microadjustability. Mitered cuts can’t slide past stop. 29" fence extends to 48".
Low points: At 0° miter, there's only 13" of sled in front of the fence, negating a key advantage of using a sled for cutting wide panels.

Extremly accurate miter gauge

Review Summary

Well worth the money to get a miter gauge/cut off sled like this. Do yourself a faver and get the right-hand drop off board also. This keeps small parts from dropping off and possibly getting caught in the blade. The gauge is very quick and easy to set up and adjust to you saw and blade. Make sure your blade is parallel to the miter gauge slot.
