A Miter Gauge for Larger Pieces(3 of 6)

This miter gauge has an extension bar for use with larger pieces. The stop has two lockdowns. Move the stop to the proper location and lock down the first stop. Then, turn the brass wheel to make fine adjustments. This gauge also has a small flip down stop and adjustment features on the bar that fits into the miter slot on the table saw so that you can fit it into the slot tightly, which is important for accurate cuts.
