If you arc a stickler for accuracy, your miter gauge may drive you bonkers when crosscutting on a table-saw. Make those prccisc cuts and keep your wits about you with the Osborne EB-2.

This reversible fcncc has lots of noteworthy features. It has one plain aluminum face and one face with a non-skid coating, to prevent creeping during angle cuts; a stop block that can be set for repetitive cuts; a guide-that works on the left- or right-hand side of the blade; and a 3/8 by 3/4 in. guide bar that can be expanded so it fits your saw perfectly. And most notably, this guide is not just a giant protractor like most miter gauges. Angles are set by using an index bar that extends from the end of the guide bar to a point on the fcncc. This triangular configuration makes the miter pros cons

Accurate cutting at factory preset angles Long fence with a flip stop Reversible for right- or left-hand operation Non-skid face for preventing creep on angle cuts Light weight

Triangular relationship of guide bar, index bar, and fence makes tool very rigid

Large divisions on index bar make setting angles easy and accurate

Tape measure, to be used in conjunction with flip stop, can't be recalibrated after blade changes

When cutting wide material, guide bar will project significantly off tablesaw on operator's side

Unique configuration takes a little time to get used to

Stop block doesn't stay out of the way
