karincorbin Posted March 22, 2015 Share Posted March 22, 2015 Here is my first entry for the fixture challenge, a custom miter gauge. We had several of the Dremel 580 table saws around the workshop. This 4 inch table saw is no longer being made. I had buyers for our last two (we are downsizing) but they were missing the miter gauge,. One of the saws belonged to my partner who is a product designer and he has lots of precision fabrication tools, laser cutter, CNC mills, 3D printer, etc around as well as various industrial strength materials. So I told him you have a buyer for your saw but we need to make a miter fence for it. Sometimes we need that incentive deadline to accomplish those "get to it someday" jobs .It is a real upgrade to the original miter fence. It fits snugly and because it is made from strong Delrin Acetal plastic the slide is self lubricating in the slot and glides smoothly. Also he put in pinned positions for 90. 45, 22.5, 30 and 60 degree angles.It won't turn a Dremel 580 into a Byrne's table saw but at least you can have a decent miter fence for it. Don will make them to order if you need one, it does come with a wood fence and instructions. Put Dremel Miter Gauge in the subject and send it to donaup at gmail. You would have to ask him about the cost, materials cost is always changing just like the price of fuel. I have several more fixtures, some I have made, some from my partner but will show them later in their own threads Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
