The Kreg miter gauge system is well designed and nicely made, but a few elements in its construction keep me from being enthusiastic about it. It was extremely accurate out of the box – I made perfect 90° cuts, as well as parts for an octagon, using the settings as they came from the factory. A loose brass pin drops in holes for preset stops at commonly used angles, and there is a vernier scale for accurately setting angles to 1⁄10°. It’s possible to tweak the adjustments to 1⁄100° – well beyond what a typical woodworker needs to do.
