"James, The "wheel" is there to keep the miter gauge from tipping when you have a T-shaped miter slot. I think I remember filing mine a little to get it to fit better. If you don't have a T-shaped slot, you don't have any choice…"

"The nylon guide bar play adjustment is different than the 90° adjustment,, at least on the INCRA. There are 4 screws, button head cap screws actually, on the head of the miter guage.  I lock the guage at 90° on the scale, loosen those 4…"

"Perry, Check your table saw--- the miter slot needs to be parallel to the saw blade, before truing up the miter gauge."

"I haven't got the Kreg miter guage but my INCRA V120 has some adjustments built in to dial it in to a perfect 90° and the runner has adjustment cams to take any slop out of the rail. I would think the Kreg would have similar."

precision miter gauge

 I receintly purchased a Kreg precision miter gauge and im having troubles with setting it. I thought my saw was out so I chalked the fence and ran it up tight to the blade so i could spin by hand and slid back to check.The pattern is pretty consistant half moon. If I use the nylon shoes on the bottom of the tool,they catch the table edge and I have to bump the tool to get it to move.Kinda dangerous when the saw is running.And it also binds in the miter groove because of the over hang past the…See More
