Is the miter gauge as good as a sled? ? Answered

I have never seen a miter gauge I liked. Not even a little bit.

I build sleds dedicated to various angles I use most, such as 45º and 90º. I even have a sled for 22.5º. They never change (need no adjustments). The one thing about sleds though is that they take up a lot of room in the shop, but they're so good I tolerate their greed of real estate.

Saw sleds do take up room, but there's no substitute for them - and I think they are worlds better than mitre gauges (I never use my mitre gauge).

A sled is the best added value when refining your table saw
setup.It is both more accurate and
safer.A clamping system on top of the
sled is the ultimate arrangement.
