Easy Miter Gauge Setup

By: Erich Lage
A quick way to make sure the angle on your table saw miter gauge is perfect every time.

05 05 01 In the past, I’ve never found the marked angles on most miter gauges to be accurate. I’ve always relied on a plastic protractor to set my miter gauge at specific angles. To speed the set up of angles on my miter gauge, I came up with a quick solution. 05 05 02 As you can see above, I marked common angles on the edge of my table saw table. I simply used a permanent marker and a protractor gauge to draw the lines. You could also use a scribe for a permanent mark. Now, instead of reaching for my protractor, I can simply lay my miter gauge on the table and set the runner to the appropriate angle.
