I purchased this miter gauge because of the clamping handle. When I received it, I was impressed with the clamping assembly, but not impressed with the body of the miter gauge. It is a light weight cast body and had sharp edges on the bottom of the body. I was concerned that it would scratch the surface of my table saw as the saw has a coating on the top. It is not a cast iron saw top. I decided to keep the miter gauge rather than sending it back. Because I kept it, I decided to file all the edges and added an anti friction strip to the bottom to prevent scratching. The miter slot bar fit loosely in the miter slot. as well, with no available adjustment on the bar to minimize the loose fit. I did like the length of the miter slot bar, the clamping handle and the adjustable cut length rod. So it does have some good features, depending on what you are looking for. But for my saw, it was not the best purchase.
