Incra miter gauge

I have the incra miter gauge with telescoping fence.... Not sure the model number off hand.... I am making plywood boxes for cabinets .... The cabinets I am on now are 12" deep and 30" long.... Should I use my incra to do the crosscuts or make a crosscut sled? They will fit on the gauge with the flip stop.... What would be the pros and cons of using the miter gauge vs crosscut sled? I am going to build a sled but do I need to stop my project to do so?... Thanks guys

not necessary

Just make certain the crosscut is a perfect 90 degrees.
Make a cut on a 12" piece then flip the cutoff over and butt it up to the keeper piece. It should form a straight line. If not, adjust the gauge until you get one. A sled would be great right now and it will take a few hours, if you have the time. But that's one of the better miter guages, so either way would work.

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)

My 1000SE does all I ask of it. I do have a sled, but hardly use it.

Since you asked. Build the sled. It's going to work better and safer. It's a great miter gauge but the sled will be easier because the wood doesn't slide on the TS.

Betcha ya can't get any better than that.
I particularly like the repeatability of the 1000SE. Sure makes life easier.

Sled is the most repeatable

I set my sled to William Ng's video on Youtube.
I was able to achieve .0001 (actually measured it) and I am getting perfect squares. I am trying to get my Incra perfect for box making but that is proving to be a challenge. I a within a few hundredths but the error still is apparent in tall boxes.
