What's Hot?
  • Precision angle indexing teeth are laser cut in solid steel to lock in 41 positive angle stops in 5° increments over a full 180° range, with special stops at 22-1/2° and 67-1/2°
  • Incra's patented GlideLOCK Miter Bar with 6 expansion points for a perfect 'no-slop' fit in the miter slot
  • Sturdy Special Edition Incra-Lock™ fence telescopes from 18" to a full 31" length
  • Flip Shop Stop has patented saw tooth rack system that instantly controls the length of your cut. Dual flip arms, equipped with three sliding stop rods, operate independently or in tandem for one, two or three simultaneious stop positioner setups. Made of solid aluminum with hardened anodized surface
What's Not?
  • Lacks the ease of fine adjustment, down to individual degree (although stainless steel vernier cursor delivers an incredible 1/10° resolution between fixed steps)
Bottom Line The Incra 1000 SE Miter Gauge has the same miter bar, fence, and flipstop as the Incra 3000 SE and 1000 HD gauges, but the 1000 SE’s head only has detents every 5°. While this gauge performed well, it lacks the ease of fine adjustment, down to individual degree, that the 1000 HD has. For an additional $15 it is worth buying the 1000 HD to get the detents every 1° even if you only need the capability occasionally. The Incra 1000 SE Miter Gauge is available on amazon for $169
