Stock Miter Gauge(1 of 5)

A stock miter gauge doesn't always fit tightly into the miter slot. A slight left or right shift of the miter gauge inside the slot during a cut can be a cause of imperfect miters. Also, if you pull the miter gauge back to make a deep cut, the miter gauge may lift up out of the slot. This can also cause imperfect miters. Some stock miter gauges only have three preset angles. The markings are set far apart, making it difficult to achieve a precise angle.
