The Miter 5000 Table Saw Miter Gauge blends the incremental angle control features of the Miter 3000SE with a very special 3-panel Sled for the ultimate miter cutting workstation for the table saw. The sled with two aluminum T-tracks and clamping fixture secures the work piece as one solid unit for precision cross-cutting at any angle. The tracks are embedded in the MDF panel top to secure an included work piece hold-down clamp and to provide absolute rigid support for the 36- to 64-inch telescoping IncraLOCK Cuto-off Fence.
The right-hand portion of the sled, once cut, secures to the right miter slot of your table saw by means of a miter slider and functions as a zero clearance cut-off table that's perfectly aligned with the main sled. Since this system includes precision angle adjustment, stop positioner and clamping sled for superior work piece control, all possibility for cutting error has been eliminated and each cut is predictable and precise. Also featured with every Miter 5000 is a simple and incredibly useful hold down clamp which locks your work piece onto the sled for maximum accuracy and the cleanest cuts possible.
Ten expansion disks adjust both sides of the bar for zero side play, anti-friction travel on all table saws with standard 3/4-by-3/8-inch or near-standard miter gauge channels, including Delta, Craftsman, and imports. This means that all of Incra's incredible precision will actually show up in your work because the bar won't wiggle around in the miter slot. Also included are Special Edition Miter Fence telescopes from 18- to a full 31-foot length. The dual flip shop stop and Incra's patented automatic positioning control also come standard with this model. AngleLOCK Indexing Precision angle indexing teeth are laser cut in solid steel to lock in 364 positive angle stops in 1/2-degree increments over a full 180-degree range. Interlocking grooves in the fence and stop ensure even the sharp edge of mitered work will not push behind the stop. The fence locking bracket creates a monolithic rigid platform and fence when tightened down. Quickly set using the included standard hex tool, this feature takes an already strong platform into the rigidity level expected in any professional machining environment.
