Cutting miter joints on a table saw can be difficult. Standard miter gauges just don't offer the precision required to set accurate angles. More often than not you end up with annoying gaps, wasted time spent sanding and trimming, and wasted material. But, combine MiterSet with your miter gauge, and now you can quickly and easily set precise angles for cutting perfect miter joints every time.
MiterSet Standard is an aluminum plate bisected by a miter gauge slot, that has hole patterns for setting both left and right angles up to 52.5°. The number pattern on each plate sector represents 5° on your miter gauge. Slide your miter gauge into the miter slot. Place one pin at 00 and the other pin in the numbered hole that represents the degree angle you want to cut - right or left. Now slide your miter gauge against the two pins and lock it down. It's that simple. Your miter gauge will now cut perfect miter joints. No gaps. No sanding. No waste!
The MiterSet also includes a detent bar which is notched from .5° to 2.5° in .5° increments. Place the detent bar against the pins and allow the detent bar to recess against the angle that you would like to cut. For example, when the pin is set at 20 degrees and the detent bar is set at 2.5 degrees the total angle is 22.5 degrees. Slide your miter gauge against the detent bar and lock it down.
MiterSet is CNC milled from a solid aluminum billet, and hole placement is accurate to 1/1000th of an inch. The hole numbers are laser-etched for years of readability. Each unit is electronically anodized to protect it from oxidation. A 2mm thick neoprene rubber backer keeps the MiterSet firmly on a flat surface for easy use.
MiterSet works with all US miter gauges that have a standard 3/4" (.75") wide miter slot. MiterSet carries a 25 year warranty, and is guaranteed to be accurate for the life of the product. All components are proudly made in the USA.
MiterSet Standard: Includes an aluminum MiterSet Plate; two (2) #5 Tapered Pins; one (1) aluminum Detent Bar; a 2mm neoprene rubber Backing; and a protective foam-lined plastic Carry Case.
The Miterset Miter Gauge Angle Setting Jig is a VERY handy tool to have! It's a bit to expensive but if you do a lot of set ups its worth it. Very easy to use but the metal pins really need to be made of stainless as my first set rusted really bad so they sent me another set and they rusted so i polished them up and now keep them oiled. The main block is MDF* wrapped with a nice laminate veneer. Overall this is a great setup tool to have in the shop and i dont think anyone will regret getting it. (*Editors Note: This reviewer is commenting on an earlier version of the MiterSet that had an MDF base. The current versions have a machined aluminum base.)
