WOOD magazine review

Simple but effective accuracy

Review Summary

High points: Once calibrated to the blade, we found the 0° stop and angle scale reliable. The sliding auxiliary fence face gives you zero-clearance support at the cutline, and replaces easily when “used up.” Low points: Without a scale for the 25"-long fence, you have to measure with a separate ruler to set the flip-stop. We tightened the miter bar’s fit in the slot as much as we could, but it was still a touch looser than we like.
The included hold-down clamp sometimes pulled workpieces away from the fence when tightening. More points: You can buy an optional cutoff-support platform (no. 37541) for $35.
