The Jessem Mite-R-Slide
(miter slide) works exclusively with the Jessem
Mast-R-Fence to make precision square and angled
cuts. The Mite-R-Slide works like most other miter gauges.
It is adjustable from 0° to 45° with positive
stops every 5° and 22-1/2°. The face of the Mite-R-Slide
has a tee track to attach a hold-down device.
There is one main difference with the Mite-R-Slide
is that it runs on a bar track that mounts to the Mast-R-Fence
instead of using the miter slot on the table. This
makes the Mite-R-Slide very precise, giving you tighter
The Jessem Mite-R-Slide is ideal for any kind of miter,
cross-grain or straight cutting situation. Trying to
machine the end of a piece of stock is tricky and can
be dangerous if the piece isn't properly secured.
If you build a lot of stile and rail panels or any
kind of frame and panel assembly you will benefit most
from using the Mite-R-Slide. This tool will definitely
give you the precision you need to get great results.
Jessem is one of those companies that focuses on a
very narrow line of products. Their router accessories
are really top quality, very well thought out and built
to last a lifetime. If you machine lots of stile and
rail panels it will help a lot.
