Topic tags/keywords: incra miter sled

I purchased one of these and I want to use it with an Incra 1000SE gauge. Prior to opening the box I read the instructions on the Incra website. It appears as though using this sled is a PITA in terms of mounting and dismounting from the saw. One also has to mount/dismount the miter gauge from the sled for non-sled use. Before I open the box I’d like to get y’alls collective opinion as to the use of this item. I can return it if need be. I do, at times, need to cross-cut wider boards so…

1: I have the Express and 1000 SE together and love it.
2: Set cams in the miter slot is all that it takes to dismount the MG.
3: I never dismount the sled from TS but that is just me.
4: The sled slips easily off of the saw just like any sled with runners.

I’m with Jack. I don’t often take the gauge off the sled, but when I do, it is a few second job.

me 3! I have the 1000HD miter gauge in the Incra Miter Express. I don’t take it out, if I cut angles it works well like that.

Just remember to check to make sure the fence will not be cut by the blade , like at 45 degree cuts. Don’t ask why I know that.

How hard is it to re-tool the saw for ripping? In other words how much time does it take to remove the sled and the cut-off piece?

The sled and cut-off piece just ride in the mitre slots on your saw. They lift out, just and any mitre gauge or cross cut sled does. So, seconds.
