Can they be recalibrated for square?




Yes. Loosen the three vertical bolts at the fence mounting bracket and the fence can then "float" through a 1 degree range while the miter gauge is locked is locked at 0 degrees. If a miter gauge is dropped and parts get tweaked, the miter gauge can often be recalibrated and work perfectly until the affected parts are replaced.

Is it possible to adjust the angle between the fence and the table saw?





Yes. It's not necessary to have the fence square to the table top when cutting with the lumber flat on the table, but this angle can be adjusted for situations where the lumber must be held upright against the fence. Paper or tape shims are added between the fence mounting bracket and gauge body in the appropriate locations and then trimmed so they don't show. The instructions are in the owner's manuals and it takes about ten minutes.

What size miter slots do the INCRA Miter Gauges fit?




All of our products fit miter slots 3/4" wide, 3/8" deep, and with or without a 15/16" T-slot at the bottom. Our miter bars are slightly undersize from a true 3/4" to fit the undersize (.740") slots of Craftsman contractor's saws. Sorry, we don't manufacture equipment for the 5/8" slot sometimes found on smaller table saws.

What's the difference between the Miter Express and Miter 5000?










They both have 24" panel capacity, full zero clearance, and greater safety & control when cutting small parts.

The Express is more compact, less expensive, and is sold without a miter gauge or fence. The quick release allows it to accept any brand of miter gauge and allows the use of the miter on different shop machinery.

The Miter 5000 has larger panels to better support plywood, the mechanics of the Miter3000 are built in, and it has INCRA's longest extending fence (36-60").

When comparing the Miter5000 to the Miter Express / Miter1000SE Combo, the Express combo is more versatile because of the quick-release for the miter gauge, and the combo can be more easily upgraded later with a longer fence, larger panels, etc.

What's the difference between the 1000SE and 3000SE?





The 1000SE has a more compact fence 18-31"), has 41 positive stops at the most common angles, and the vernier scale reads all the way to tenths of a degree.

The 3000SE has a longer fence (27-49") and miter bar. It also has 364 positive stops 1/2 degree apart, but it lacks a vernier scale.

Do you have anything to fit a Shopsmith?



We have the Miter V120 Shopsmith Edition (SMITERV120), Miter 2000 (SMITER/18) gauge available for Shopsmith, the Miter Express (SMITEREXPRESS), Miter Gauge Combo Pack (SME/1000SE) and Miter 5000 (SMITER5000) are also available for those machines.

How do you set the scale on the fence?



Set the stop to slightly overhang the end of the fence, set the scale to read "zero" at the edge of the stop, and then slide the fence toward the blade until the stop just kisses the blade. Tighten the fence in this position.

What are the benefits of using a sled vs. a miter gauge?




Sleds offer roughly double the capacity of the best miter gauges (even INCRA's!) and can cut common cabinet parts, sleds offer better safety and control for small parts with the use of hold downs and because they "carry" the lumber through the blade, and sleds offer a cleaner cut because of the zero-clearance on both sides of the blade (especially important cross cutting veneered plywood).

I have an INCRA miter gauge already. Can I upgrade the fence?


Yes. Every miter fence fits every INCRA gauge body.

Can I buy a Flip Shop Stop?


Yes, BUT it will only work on fences that are designed to accept it. The fences on the Miter1000T or Miter2000 MUST be replaced with a Flip Fence to accept the flip stop.

Can I buy a Flip Stop for my router fence?



Sorry, the Flip Shop Stop is only compatible with the miter gauge fences.
