INCRA Miter1000/HD Miter Gauge

I just purchased a new INCRA Miter1000/HD Miter Gauge to go on my Delta Unisaw. Does anyone have an opinion about this gauge good or bad?

Mine was accurate, easily adjusted, smooth in the slot. That was before my daughter dropped it on the concrete floor. Anybody know where to buy parts? I've had no luck searching the net. I suppose I'll have to find the Incra number & call.

I'm a big fan of Incra products and haven't found I product they make that disappoints. Parts are readily available since everything is manufactured in the US. Just contact them with an email if you can't find the parts online, they are sometimes tricky to find.
I highly recommend their t-rules for precision marking, far better then anything else I've tried.

I've had one for several years & really like it. I replaced several of the screws that lock parts in place with ratchet levers; makes it easier & quicker to reposition parts of the gauge for varying operations, compared to using the hex driver they provide.

I bought the levers on Amazon; best price I could find at the time.

My neighbor, who has museum customers for his gilded frames, uses a pair for his miters, so that is a good recommendation.

Great miter gauges. I have the 1000SE. Really like the micro adjust fence with flip stop.
I also replaced the socket head screws with ratchet levers as shown. It was a royal pia using a hex drive tool to adjust the fence.

I think you may have posted about the levers before, and that's where I got the idea from.
