Excalibur mitre guide

How about a mitre gauge that gives you 41″ of support for those crosscuts? How about a mitre gauge that has positive (and accurate) stops for all of the most common angles? The Osborne EB-3 does all that and more.

The EB-3 fits all standard table saw mitre slots, including “T” slots with the removable washer/screw. The EB-3 quite easily fits the right or left mitre slot and does so in seconds.

I liked the full support it gave when cutting longer boards and I also liked the Alan screw adjustments to tighten or loosen the mitre bar in the slot. They eliminate any chance of side-play. A good idea was to enclose a self-adhesive abrasive strip to cover the fence face.

On the downside is the assembly manual. It is somewhat vague in content and leaves a lot of room for improvement.

Overall, the Osborne EB-3 Mitre Guide by Excalibur, offers very smooth operation.
