I own a Dubby and Osborn Eb-3; inherited both of them with a used saw purchase. Both work well and can be set up to make repeatable cuts.
Not sure exactly why, but reach for Osborn Eb-3 first for non-45 angle miter cuts? Think biggest reason is Eb-3 doesn’t have 1/2 inch thick support plate that Dubby uses, which reduces the cut depth. The Eb-3 fence is also longer. The Dubby scale is marked with common multi-sided box angles, If I was into turning segmented bowls; pretty sure I would grab the Dubby jig for them.

Note – Have a separate DIY 45 degree miter sled as I cut frames often, and wanted a dedicated jig to avoid time spent on setup and verification of an adjustable jigs. So do not use either the Dubby or Eb-3 for 45 cuts anymore, but when I need odd angle both get used.

Best Luck.
