Topic tags/keywords: incra miter gauge 1000hd incra express incra table saw sled miter gauge question tablesaw

I have Sawstop table saw(left tilt). For Christmas, I got Incra miter gauge 1000HD and fine tuned it for precise 90 degrees setup in right miter track. Further tested it with 30 degree 6 sided hexagon to amplify possible angle error but the hexagon fit together perfectly. Then I assembled the Incra express miter sled on right side and mounted miter gauge 1000HD in the sled and did test cut and it is off by about 1/2 to 1 degree. I like things precise and my OCD cannot tolerate this. Does any one know why this is occurring? How to correct? I could readjust the fence to 90 degrees for the sled, but then if I used the 1000HD without the sled it would not be 90 degrees if used in the miter slot alone. I don’t want to have to adjust it every time I switch back and forth. I suspect the problem is when the cam screw is tightened down, it shifts the gauge to the left side of the slot against the expansion washers to lock it in place, and this is not the same angle as the sled miter slot. If I push the miter gauge to the right side of the slot (with bare metal as it would be if mounted to the left of the blade) then using a machine square on the fence it lines up with the blade perfectly. Any thoughts?

Gpilot +1 on Incra tech support. first thing is to square the sled “cut” to the Gage not the blade. Mine is perfect.
