Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced a sturdy, easy-to-set and highly precise miter gauge that's an affordable upgrade to the sometimes meager gauges that come standard with table saws. Rockler also has developed a telescoping aluminum fence that mounts easily to the new Rockler miter gauge or to other gauges on the market to provide extended support for longer workpieces and an adjustable stop for making quick, accurate repeat cuts.
"A new miter gauge is one of the first upgrades many woodworkers make to their table saws, and we think the Rockler Precision Miter Gauge offers a great combination of advanced features and value," said Steve Krohmer, Rockler's vice president of product development. "If you add our new Miter Gauge Fence, you also get the extended workpiece support and the repeatable accuracy you'd expect from a dedicated miter sled."
The Rockler Precision Miter Gauge (https://www.rockler.com/rockler-precision-miter-gauge) has an aluminum head with an easy-to-read scale ranging from 0° to 70° in both directions, plus precision-machined positive stops at 0°, 15°, 22.5°, 30°, 45° and 60°. A spring-loaded stop locks into the notches that create the positive stops, and a machined hairline indicator makes it easy to set other angles. The Precision Miter Gauge's 18" steel miter bar works in 3/4" x 3/8" standard and T-slot miter slots and features adjustable nylon set screws for eliminating slop. It comes with two knobs and two T-bolts for mounting a fence, and all knobs feature rubber overmolds for a better, more comfortable grip.
The backbone of the Rockler Miter Gauge Fence (https://www.rockler.com/rockler-miter-gauge-fence) is a rigid 2-1/4"-tall x 1-1/8"-deep x 14"-long aluminum extrusion and a matching 2"-long telescoping extension that can be mounted on either side of the fence and adjusted to provide a total fence length ranging from 16" to 24". An included 3/4"-thick x 18"-long melamine-coated MDF fence face attaches to the extrusion with included hardware and can be extended beyond the fence to provide zero-clearance support for cleaner cuts. The MDF fence face also is long enough that a 2" section can be cut and attached to the telescoping extension, providing consistent support even when the fence is extended without sacrificing zero-clearance support.
Additionally, the aluminum extrusion incorporates top- and front-facing universal T-tracks for mounting the included flip stop or shopmade stop blocks. A rear-facing T-track makes it easy to attach the fence to the Rockler Precision Miter Gauge or other miter gauges with knobs and T-bolts. As with the Precision Miter Gauge, the Miter Gauge Fence features easy-to-grip knobs with rubber overmolds.
The Rockler Precision Miter Gauge (53310) is priced at $99.99, while the Rockler Miter Gauge Fence (61967) is priced at $49.99. Both are available for purchase or pre-order exclusively online at http://www.rockler.com or at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, as well as through the Rockler catalog.
