I have Incra V27 but if I had to shop for a one all over again I would pick Incra 1000HD,the reason for it is, I sometimes need the 1 degree or half degree increments for different projects. The V27 got me very frustrated when I was trying make a few compound cuts that were in 1/2° like 27.5° ,that was when I wish I had splurged a bit more and got the 1000HD.

Yeah, I considered it. If it was another $20, I would have but it’s an extra $60 and I just can’t justify that much. I don’t recall ever needing that much precision and if I do, I always end up tuning the fit with a block plane anyway. Of course since I just ordered it and just said that, I’ll need to batch out 45 boards mitered to 27.5 degrees this weekend. ;-)
