Someone is selling one of these miter gauges on my local CL. https://www.amazon.com/Oskool-Miter-Gauge-Fence-system/dp/B07H93Q836/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

I’ve never heard of a tool company called O’Skool and can’t find anything about them online. I’m guessing it’s some fly-by-night Chinese company, but it seems weird that there’s just nothing about them anywhere online. Anyone ever heard of them or tried out this miter gauge?

Never heard of them either but, Amazon has a boat load of their accessories. Some look pretty interesting. I
FWIW, Kreg makes a similar miter gauge and fence. It’s a good, one too.

Haven’t tried it, but Google tool-r-us.com, or Alibaba (search “miter gauge”) for the same thing.

+1 Tool r us: https://www.tool-r-us.com/

They are product development and export company that specializes in private label wood working accessories. They don’t make stuff, they are design, warehouse, and export specialist so that foreigner’s don’t have learn mandarin or Taiwanese to work with local mfg. Been around for many decades. If you want to buy several hundred, they will sell to most anyone. :-)

The miter head and rail are identical to Peachtree Fulton miter fence.
