If you’ve ever had to cut pieces with precise compound angles, you’ll really appreciate Craftsman’s new digital miter gauge. It’s accurate to within one-tenth of a degree. The gauge comes equipped with a clever magnetic device for measuring the tilt of your blade to the same degree of accuracy: just what you’ll need for those difficult compound angles. Like all good miter gauges, this one has three adjustable expansion points for fitting the bar tight in your saw’s miter slot. The miter gauge’s range is 50° to the right and 50° to the left. It includes a 15" aluminum fence. The numbers on the backlit LCD screen are large and easy to read.
