Miter gauge

Few weeks ago I bought a new to me Ridgid table saw and now am need of some advice. I got a great deal on it but it is missing two things. It is missing the blade guard/ splitter/roving knife assembly and a miter gauge.

My questions are should I order the blade guard assembly or go with the grr-ripper instead for protection?
And which miter gauge should I go with?

many to choose from here

http://www.amazon.com/Incra-MITERV27-Miter-V27-Gauge/dp/B0007UQ2DW/ref=sr_1_1?s=power-hand-tools&ie=UTF8&qid=1318344799&sr=1-1


www.amazon.com
Search: miter gauge


I have two Incras and an Osborne and recommend either in the $100 and over price range. The standard Delta is a HD model for under $50.00. The Osborne will do it all, has an adjustable fence with a stop and is accurate. Same with the Incra, but more expensive. Between $50 and $100 there are 2 Incras on sale, either is very good. They have positive detents every 5 degrees and are very accurate. Now you just have to decide what your budget is.... bill

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I have a ridgid saw too and got an Osbourne for it. I love it. I use my blade guard and splitter on all through cuts. The gripper isn't going to provide a splitter so you should find an after market splitter too if you plan to use the gripper with no cover/splitter.

Thanks for the quick reviews. I was looking at the incra 1000SE, the Kreg or the osborn miter gauges. Would you recommend one of the other.

Also another, thought for the blade guard is to buy/build an overarm guard system. I am looking at the PSI Woodworking TSGUARD Table Saw Dust Collection Guard. At amazon it is about $170, which is about $50 more than buying the replacement guard for the saw. But it still leave the dilemma of the splitter. Any thoughts on a good aftermarket splitter?

thanks

The HD has more angle stops if I recall correctly.

I like both my Osborne EB-3 and my Incra. Whichever you like best should do a great job for you.

Blade guard and splitter options

Take a look at the Bolt On Ripping Knife and Shark Guard.

Check Ebay also

People are always selling parts for the older Cman saws.
The splitter mounts on these bolts I'm pretty certain:
