Enter the MiterSet. This handy tool is available in two versions:
- One that will give you actually degrees, such as 45 deg, 62.5 deg, etc.
- The other is even simpler in that if tells you how many sides a box or frame or whatever you are mitering will have. For example, want a 9 sided object? Who cares what the actual degrees are? Just set the pins in the proper holes, slide the loosened miter gauge in the propriatary Shopsmith slot against the pins and tighten. That's it!
