This is a very solid and well thought out piece of kit. Worked great cutting dado's and rabbits on drawer parts.
I realized after getting home that their is a 1000 *HD* version that has positive stops at every degree vs. every 5; not essential but worth the extra $25-$30. I was just to lazy to go back to exchange and then wait for Woodcraft to ship.
I've owned this miter gauge over 6yrs now and through 4 different table saws.
The adjustable miter slot slide bar has made this gauge 100% transferable between saws.
The dual flip stops mounted to a micro adjustable fixture is a god send. You can fine tune a cut to better than a whiskers width.
This feature alone is the most used feature for me. and worth the price alone.
The Vernier Cursor has been a similarly used feature. I set the miter to my desired angle, and if my miter isn't what I need, the vernier scale gives me 1/10th degree adjustments.
Altogether a very ROBUST miter gauge and well worth the price. I would buy it again if mine ever breaks for any reason.
Only ONE downside for me:
The telescoping extrusion that holds the flip stop, I wish it was longer. It extends to 31 inches which is great, but I want more.
This is no fault of the 1000SE, just me being greedy, LOL
