Product Description

Amazon.com

This might be the most accurate, smartest, and safest after-market saw gauge we’ve ever seen. Instead of the protractor-type gauge that typically comes with a table saw, Osborne built theirs on a triangular model. When they say "rock solid, dead accurate," they’re not kidding: It’s guaranteed to be accurate to within 1/30th of a degree right out of the box. You’ll never have to attach another auxiliary fence to a miter gauge and worry about it warping. Clean, smooth, accurate crosscuts happen every time without hassle. Operation is as simple as your standard miter gauge, but with this ingenious system, even a beginner can’t make a miscut. Repeat angle cuts, and all your workpieces are interchangeable and identical. A telescoping extension means even long boards are fed true into the blade. No pro shop should be without this, and hobby woodworkers will love the results.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

From the Manufacturer

The all new Osborne by Excaliber EB-3 has three laser-cut expansion slots in the guide bar to provide a more positive fit in your saw. The new fence extension allows for more solid support of long material and carries the flip top ou to 42-inches. The EB-3 is built to be accurate to within 1/30th of a degree right out of the box. It's fully reversible so you can work to the right or left of the blade.

Scratch another star for the worst Customer Service!

I noticed that the guide bar was dragging on the bottom of the slot and if the fence had not been attached the unit would have rocked slightly.

I have been researching a new miter gauge for almost 6 months. I had looked at most of the ones on the market, including the incra line, and Dewalt's copy of the EB-3 (seperate review). Couldn't find anyone who had an osborne in stock, so with a little whining I convinced my local woodworker's store to order a couple in. The problem began when the two units arrived at the store. All the people who work at this particular store are avid woodworkers in their own right. They assembled one of the miter gauges and gave it a try. It was perfect right out of the box. When I arrived several hours later to pick up my osborne miter gauge (they had told me when they would arrive), I had a hell of time prying one out of their hands. They have since ordered a dozen more, some for stock and some for employee's. I took home the one they had already assembled, as I planned on using it as soon as I got home. They had adjusted it to fit on the Jet supersaw..they had no slop and no rock. The face was 90 deg to the table and 90 deg to the blade. Since my saw is the Dewalt 746, I figured I would have some adjusting to do....WRONG....it slid into my table saw with no adjusting at all. It slides beautifully, with no side to side slop at all. I have no rocking, scraping and have noticed no flexing. The face is 90 to the table and 90 to my saw blade. I checked everything I could check and couldn't find one problem. So of course I figured I was doing something wrong. Can't be this good right out of the box, so I rechecked everything with another set of squares, ran a couple of pieces of pine thru on the 90 setting, perfect, cut a couple 45's, perfect, then the ultimate, 221/2"s, perfect. The last test was to let the Shop Dog sniff it and even he approved.Read more ›

I received my Excalibur EB-3 and just couldn't wait to use it. The miter gauge was easy to assemble and dead on accurate relative to the miter slot in my table saw. The construction is very solid and the workmanship is superb. When I first set the gauge up I checked all the angles and was concerned that the fence face was not perpendicular to the miter slot bar. I sent an email to Osborne's customer service late one night and had an answer by the next morning. This is impressive and courteous customer service. It turns out that the handle on my square was not square, the EB-3 was right on!
After checking the choices, it boiled down to the EB-3 or the Incra-2000/27. It appeared to be a toss up. I went with the EB-3 because of the sturdier looking construction, besides Norm uses the EB-3.

I received my eb3 and out of the box it had a flaw. It seems, still, to me to be a design flaw. The part of the fence that moves from one side of your saw to the other has a small foot on it. When I set this up to work from the left side of the rip fence, this very small foot would ride up under the small fence that holds it causing the whole thing to rock from side to side. I called Osborne and was met with courtesy and caring. No solution, though. I did, however, find a fix to my problem, two very thin washers on the two bolts that go through the small fence. I have cut, in the last 3 months, dozens of angles right left and sideways. All dead accurate and repeatable. Cut 10 pieces of 2x4 38 1/2 inches. All were exactly identical. I didn't put any real pressure on the extension. Just careful cutting.
I am well pleased with my purchase.

When I first tried my EB-3 in my Jet tablesaw, I had a serious problem with the guide bar binding in both mitre slots. At first, I thought the guide bar was warped on the head end. After futher investigation, which included disassembling the unit, the guide bar was indeed dead flat and straight. The culprit turned out to be the guide washer, more specifically the tongue that the guide washer is screwed into. The tongue is about 1/32" too thick, making the washer bind in the slot. After I filed the washer down and reattached it, everything worked fine. Of course, I knocked the unit out of square disassembling it, but recalibrating it was easy. It's dead on now.

I was very excited when Santa brought me a long awaited EB-3. The design was great and very simple to use. It had everyting you could ask for in a miter gauge, except vertical accuracy. The fence was out of square in relation to the table. I first thought it was a manufacturing flaw, so I exchanged it for a new one. It had the same problem. I simply could not rely on it for vertical accuracy in relation to the table, A major drawback. Also, I ended up disliking the way it scratched the table as I used it. I ended up returning the EB-3 and getting a Woodhaven deluxe with an extended fence, which has worked out very well for my needs.

This gauge encountered several complications that diminished it's accuracy. It does a great job a 90 degrees, but when extended and angled the detents are off by over 1 degree in each direction...that's about the accuracy you can get from a cheap stock gauge, so what I basically paid for was a nice extendable crosscut fence.

This was the third gauge that was sent, and all three had a similar problem, plus one even had a slider bar that rocked. Osborne's customer service was not as responsive as I've come to expect from similar companies like Hartville, Lee Valley, Grizzly, etc.

The miter slot adjustment mechanisms work really well. The flip stop and extension fence are very good. I like the handle, supporting arm and the t-tracks. The cam adjuster that allows you to precisely dial the gauge in is also excellent.

Important update: During the winter of 2008, David Osborne himself read my review of his EB-3 and contacted me about making things right. He offered to send a new gauge at no cost to me. The new gauge is functioning perfectly. It seemed only fair to give an update that highlights this extraordinary customer service. Unfortunately, the rating system won't allow me to change the 3-Star rating to a 4-Star, but it undoubtedly deserves it. Mr. Osborne is one class act IMHO!
