The miter gauge that came with your table saw is likely pretty poor, but that does not mean you are forced to buy a high end aftermarket unit. In this episode we will show you how to clean and tune your gauge and how to add set screws to fit the miter bar properly in your saw’s miter slot.

We then show you how to make a professional grade auxiliary fence to turn your miter gauge into a precision cross cutting tool. And we will show how to use a common office protractor to set any angle quickly and accurately.
