I recently bought the HD1000 and the Miter Express. After complete setup, it is dead on. The 1/10’ vernier takes a little time to get used to, but once you read the addendum they add, and do it once or twice, it is really simple.
I actually was able to set it up to 11.25’ yesterday afternoon, and laid out four rings, 16 segments each of walnut and yellowheart, zero light in the seams on all four rings when dry fitted with band clamps. Glued them up and happy, happy, happy.
One of the secrets seems to be able to cut the segments the same exact length every time. I use a block with magnets in it, up against my table saw fence below the blade cut. I slide it up so I can measure from the blade to the block, then bring the block back down so the block is not in the way of the cut, but sets the distance. Run the wood off the Miter Express to the block edge, then push forward from there into the blade. I can measure to 1/64th of an inch with this system, using a calibrated rule.
