I want to upgrade the mitre gauge provided with this saw. Has anyone done this and what is recommended as a replacement.
Incra etc mention 3/4 inch but the Axminster saw has a T section channel. Will the Incra fit? Or should I upgrade my cross-cut sled?

this has come up before - do a search for threads but IIRC it goes something like:

the section is 'non standard' so theres no replacements

no-one sells the profile to enable you to make your own

you can get an engineering firm to mill out some normal sized slots (someone did this)

or make a sled like everyone else

I could have got that wrong though and hope you come up with an answer cos i'd like to upgrade as well!

cheers - Pete

Hi Foxhunter, welcome to the forum. I did a Head to Head review of the IncraV27, Incra 1000SE, and Osbourne EB3.
head-to-head-mitre-gauge-review-s-t42756.html I hope that it helps.

All 3 of them will fit a 3/4" X 3/8" T slot because they come with a picece of metal called a T-Clip which when screwed on the end of the gauge insurses that it will fit any slot of the above size.

Cheers

Mike

Thanks Mike, that's just what I wanted to hear. I have had a look at your review and found it very helpful.

Well that shows how much attention I've been paying - I read that review when it first came out and completely missed the 't clip' bit! Doh

better late than never
