Product Description

The Craftsman Digital Miter Gauge determines precise miter and bevel angles with +/- .1 degree accuracy. The digital clarity of the backlit LED screen easily identifies angles and reads right side up, even when upside down, to increase the accuracy of the cutting task. Reads angles up to 50 right and 50 left of 0. The locking handle securely locks the miter head in position and three adjustable expansion points are featured for precise table-slot fit. The 15 in. extruded aluminum fence extends the work area while the magnetic blade attachment attaches to the miter bar for blade-to-table squaring and angle adjustment. For use with all bench, portable and stationary tools with a standard 3/4-in. miter-gauge slot.

miter guage
I have just finished an entire summer living with this gauge. Frankly, I am not sure how I got along without it. My eyes aren't what they used to be. I built the gauge into my home made sliding table, and it has worked flawlessly through hundreds of cuts. I just finished a cherry table and chair set. The chairs have 8 degree compound miters, and every one is right on the money. In fact, the parts for all the chairs were interchangeable. I have no doubt that I could have made these angles by measuring each setup diligently, since I have done it many times before in six decades of woodworking; but I never would have believed how effortlessly I was able reproduce compound miters. As for the cover and battery, I have had no trouble with either, but I did build the gauge into my sliding table. If you are worried about the accuracy of your current miter gauge, or you just want to be able to reproduce angles exactly, buy one of these gauges, make sure you have a good accurate square to adjust it in the first place (otherwise it will not be accurate), and make your life easier. It will take you about 15 minutes with a good square to align it with your saw blade, but it will stay spot on unless you drop it. Follow the advice in the manual to make sure that you move the gauge to the same spot on the table for each adjustment. This was a remarkable good investment for me. RL

Solid Design - Poor Battery Door
I waited about 6 months for these to become available. I finally was able to purchase one at my local Sears store. I read the instructions and found out that it required 2 AAA battries so I ran out picked up some new ones and headed back to the shop. I opened the battery door, AND IT FELL OFF ! THE 1 CENT HINGED PLASTIC DOOR FELL OFF !! This said, I was able to duct tape the door closed so I could try it out. It is extremely accurite. I used a sign bar and gage blocks to check the cuts at 15, 22.5, 30 and 45 degrees. It was within 15minutes in all instances. I am now patiently waiting for another one.

Accurate to a TEE!!

This miter gauge is great for an advanced woodworker. It is a nice heavy-duty gauge that has a large lighted display screen for easy viewing, I like the magnetic blade attachment, which basically turns my miter gauge into an digital angle gauge, saving me an extra $40 dollars.

The body of this gauge is heavy duty aluminum. the finish on all painted pieces is top notch, and I like the two screws supplied with the fence so I can attach a sacrificial fence to the miter gauge.

It is a shame that Sears has discontinued this item, if promoted more, I think this would have sold better

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is frustrating

I purchased a Craftsman 28461 table saw. I wanted to upgrade the miter gauge that came with it and purchased a Incra Miter27 from an online supplier. It did not fit the channel on the Craftsman. I returned it. I went online today and chatted with a Sears Rep who guaranteed that the Craftsman digital would work with my model table saw. The description says it will fit 3/4 inch channels. Read review that the Craftsman channels are non standard 5/8 inch. I'm thankful to the reviewer for saving me from purchasing/returning another miter gauge. Mad at Sears for selling non standard products. Can anyone offer any ideas/assistance? Thanks.

One drop, and trash

I bought the digital miter gauge , dropped it once, and now the digital part doesn't work. When it was manufactured, it should have had the slide marked with the degrees of angle too besides being digital to make it multi useful, but as is, if the digital part dont work, its trash, , sad. .

The tool is dependable

Just as dependable as the Digital Cubes, Calipers. Used to set the angled shoulder of some rails/rungs I'm making for a set of splay legged stools. as well as the angle of the tenons. Fit perfectly into the legs of the stools. So setting the angles on both ends were accurate using the digital readout on the mitre. Was pleased with the results of the the tool as well as the price.

Digital miter gauge is interesting new product.

I like the miter gauge, but it was sort of difficult to install and understand the directions. What I really don't like is the time it took the Sears salespeople in the tools dept. to even find the gauge in their store.  The tools sales staff is not knowledgeable about the products they have for sale.  I even have to bring my own Craftsman club catalog because the store seldom has one to check.

But, overall, I do like Craftsman products and have a large table saw, hand and bench sanders, drills, reciprocating saw, air compressor, vacuum, etc., all bought at the local Sears.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It works as advertised

Earlier this year I bought a Sears Craftsman boxjoint/miter gauge fence (one size fits all) to use with the origional miter gauge on my table saw. To make a long story short, the joints never came out as needed because of slop or play in my origional miter gauge. I had been looking around for an after market miter gauge for several months and came across this Sears model. This was just what I was looking for!

Today I purchased one, brought it home and went to the shop. I followed the instructions and finished the minor amount of assembly in five minutes. The setup was flawless. The miter gauge rides in its' track without any play in it. You can set it on any degree with no effort and it stays there. I am delighted! It does everything the ad says with no problem except,,,

The Sears Craftsman boxjoint/miter gage fence (this was supposed to fit all miter guages) does not fit or match up to my new Sears Craftsmas Digital Miter Guage! How can this be?

I would recommend this product to a friend.

not compatible with my Craftsman table saw!

Never had a chance to use this, since my CRAFTSMAN table saw has a NON-standard 5/8" slot.  Frustrating.

I purchased the miter gauge for my Craftsman table saw. The gauge fits the groove perfectly. I have had the miter gauge for two months now and I am very happy with it. I have had the same batterys in the gauge since I got it and they are still good. I find the gauge to be very accurate and it is really worth the price I paid for it. There are two things that I don't like, the first is that the battery compartment door is very easy to open accidently and the second is the two fence lock levers are rather small and hard to grip but they are minor problems. I would recommend this gauge to anyone that use a table saw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

More accurate than the miter that came with my saw

I think it's a quality miter for the money. Easy to use and my miter cuts are definitely more accurate than with the miter that came with my table saw. I would recommend this to my friends
