INCRA’s attention to detail, their penchant for using high-end materials and dead on CNC (computer numerically controlled) machining means that you are getting a quality American Made tool that will last forever.
Incra are renowned for creating items that bring incredible precision to woodworking. And the iBox is no exception. Unlike the other box jigs, the iBox has a completely variable finger size to exactly match the size of the cutter.
The INCRA TS-LS Fence System is a remarkable fence system
with far-reaching capabilities far beyond even high-buck factory
or aftermarket t-square fences. The entire unit is made with
the traditional INCRA quality and attention to detail. And
that includes their use
of first rate materials and manufacturing processes ...
If you are looking for an aftermarket miter gauge and need
to protect the budget, the INCRA Miter V120 could be the one
for you. This is a high-quality piece that works easily with
all of the accuracy you need. With a street price of $84.99
(9-15-2009) the INCRA Miter V120 handles your jobs with all
the accuracy your shop needs. And, it durability means the
INCRA Miter V120 will remain a valued tool in your shop for
many years to come ...-

The Miter Slider SE from Incra was not only easy to dial into
the miter slot on my table saw and band saw it is incredibly
smooth in operation. I was able to remove all play between
the miter slot and the Miter Slider SE with a simple adjustment
to the expandable discs. My table saw jigs will now have "no"
play what so ever between the miter slot and the miter bar...
and that gives me the accuracy Iím looking for when it
comes to table saw operations ...
The Incra Mitre Gauges have long represented some of the most
accurate mitre gauges on the market... Both these have had
the high definition treatment. With a significant advancement
in laser cutting accuracy, having V-grooves every 5 degrees
is a thing of the past, and now they are every degree... As
you can see, the V120 now has significant accuracy, and represents
an impressive upgrade to the V27.
promotes their table saw and router table line of LS positioning
fences as also useful for cutting dovetails and box joints.
All that is certainly possible, and they include extensive
instructions and ruler templates for doing that. I installed
their router table option on the left side of my table-saw
so I can slide over the entire LS fence system for router
table use as well - slick! Works great for that as well.
INCRA Guaranteed Squares are a very well-made, thoughtfully
engineered measuring/layout tool that comes with the best

right, everything you use to create them must also be dead

what you would find are carpenters speed squares, carpenters
framing squares, try, machinists, double, combination, and
a line of exceedingly expensive collectors tools.

are well known for making quality woodworking products and
accessories. Their miter gauges are some of the best in the
business. It's very evident that a lot of thought has gone
into creating the Miter Express product as it addresses many
common limitations of the basic table saw setup.
The machining of parts was spot on, and after five weeks of
testing this product, I am happy to
report that the Miter Express is still a regular real estate
occupier of my table saw's cast iron top. Kudos to Incra for
a neat and innovative solution to some common table saw problems.
you are new to woodworking, the Incra system reviewed here
is primarily designed as a router table jig. Incra also makes
a similar system that can be used as a tablesaw rip fence
that can also accept the Wonder Fence for router operations.
The positioner can and has been used for a multitude of applications
besides these though.
If you have never used one of these incremental jigs before,
you are in for a treat. It will only take about five minutes
of operation to conclude they are the best thing since the
invention of the circular saw blade. The Incra LS Super System represents one of the major milestones in modern woodworking
accessories. Incra could justifiably alter the ad line from
Dupont and say "we don't
cut the wood, we allow it to be cut accurately".
Incra LS Positioner Super System is extraordinary in its innovating
design, quality manufacturing and ease of use. Even the beautiful
but intimidating-looking double and double-double dovetails
are remarkably easy to make because of the automatic accuracy
built into the Incra LS Positioner and its template driven
If you are looking for a joinery machine that embodies accuracy,
flexibility and ease of use, the Incra LS Positioner Super
System has few,
if any, competitors. I know of no other machine that offers
these qualities in such a well made, ingeniously engineered
and easy to use package at any price.
If you are serious about being as accurate as possible with
your layout and marking you really need to check out the INCRA
Rules. I donít know of anything that is as precise as the
INCRA Rules this side of a true laser system. The ability to
employ this level of accuracy with hand tools in a normal shop
is remarkable and will benefit your work in no small way ...
Relatively late in life I learned the old saw (pun intended)
"Measure Twice, Cut Once." I wish these Incra
measuring tools had been available at that time because
I'm sure my measurements (and cutting) through the
years would have been much more accurate.

is easy to install and performs exactly as advertised. You will
quickly fall in love with the positive action of the racks and
the ease by which you will be able to set an accurate, repeatable
fence position. The fit and finish was outstanding as there
a single surface scratch on my unit.
Express bridges a gap between large cumbersome crosscut
sleds and smaller units for detail work. In addition
to common 90 degree settings it allows angle settings too. When
coupled with an Incra miter gauge, it adds increased accuracy
to these angle settings as well. Any sled should make crosscut
operations safer. The T-slot design of the Miter Express and
stock clamp add even more to the safety aspect.
V27 is a well made tool and a great value. I highly recommend
the V27 to two groups of users. Those who cannot afford a more
deluxe Incra miter gauge or those needing a good secondary gauge
for use on sanders, bandsaws, and the like. I do not recommend
the V27 for those who are going to put deluxe cross fences on
it as I believe it would end up being more expensive than buying
a more deluxe model that already included a fence (like the

is a well made tool and at around $150 it is a great value.
I would recommend the 1000se even without the cross fence as
it is a remarkable improvement over the miter gauges that come
standard with machines. The inclusion of a decent cross fence
with a flip stop make the product even more useful and noteworthy
enough to earn my "highly recommended" rating.

first impression of this accessory even before it was assembled
is something akin to "I wish the rest of my saw were made with
this attention to detail, quality, and precision".
Part of the normal process of assembling and tuning woodworking
machines and most accessories for me involves quite a bit of
deburring of edges, lubrication, chasing tapped holes and whatnot.
The Incra is a noticeable step above all this as I basically
didn't have to do any of these things.
5000 Miter Sled is hardly a new product, except for my shop.
I have seen it
used at shows, and it is clearly one more well designed and
executed product from Incra.
And, it is a welcomed addition to my shop.
It will coming particularly handy in the next
weeks as Beth and I take on a number of small box projects.

TSIII-32 32" Ultra Based Table Saw Fence Positioner
always, Incra's instructions are second to none - very clear, great diagrams,
well thought through, with components bagged in sequence. When you get an Incra
product, you just know it's going to fit and you know it's going to work. As I
assembled, I kept thinking 'well, I wonder how I'm going to do this or that sort
of cut', only to find that they have thought it all through. As with my Positioning
system, the quality of materials and components is a lesson to the rest of the
world - yes, it's more expensive than competitors but I, for one, will continue
to buy Incra. I now need a bigger workshop so that I can fit a positioning system
to my table saw.

thing down where it was suppose to be. Now my T.S. fence works like its suppose
to. I loved my L.S on my router table and now on my table saw its really going
to be great. I
sure enjoyed talking to you on the phone and hope to meet you in person some time.

sweetie purchased the 12" version for my Xmas present...This is the best gift
ever!! No more slop like a tape measure, this rule is the ultimate measuring/marking
tool that I could ever have. Thanks!
Brian, from Burlington
I have a nice cross-cut sled that I built to handle all of my 90 degree cuts,
all I really needed was a decent quality miter gauge to handle any angle cutting
or "nibble" cuts that I may need to make on the table saw. This Incra V27 gauge
has been just the solution I was looking for! ‚Ä¶I highly recommend this tool!
