I know I am in a tiny minority.
It just started out bad for me and I guess I have just never been able to get past it.
The end of the plastic piece in the sliding stop was broken off at the screw hole.
I found it when that piece slid out of the stop because neither screw was tightened.
There are 4 screws that hold the miter, you loosen those to adjust for square. I managed to get it square but I had to twist hard counterclockwise, there is absolutely no more adjustment available in that direction.
Loose screws, broken part, required adjustments on every parameter….just wasn’t what I expected when I paid the $$$ for the Incra.
Incra replaced the broken part after I sent a picture and I didn’t have to return the defective one.

You know if you buy something from Harbor Freight you have certain expectations and when you buy something from Incra you have certain expectations…..I feel like I got the Harbor Freight experience with the HD1000 instead of the WOW this is better than sliced bread experience I was expecting.

My saw is a Delta 36-714 hybrid, I have adjusted it so it is square, straight, and true.
