Top Customer Reviews
Ways I found the Kreg bars to be more desirable than Incras:
The bars are also not trapezoidal like the Incra 24" Sliders, so that they can drop directly into any 3/4" miter slot at any point. I think the newer Incras do not have that problem. The 24" bars can only enter most table saws from the very front. This could be tedious with deeper sleds. The kreg bars drop in anywhere.
There are 8 set screws or adjusters on the 30" bar. I know the product page says 5. The package says 6. There are actually 8. The incras only have 3 adjustment points.
The nylon set screws do not create a "chalkboard" sensation when moving in slots. With the Incra bars, moving aluminum on cast iron is not pleasant.
The set screws are more easily adjustable. You turn the screw the tiniest amount, you'll get a predictable amount of expansion. The Incra bars would "jump." In other words, while adjusting the Incra bars, the expansion would not happen gradually on some adjustment points. Also, should the need arise, the Kreg bars could theoretically be adjusted after they've been attached to a sled. This shouldn't happen, but if you change climates and the temps are different enough, you could do it.
The 30" Kreg bars are obviously longer than either of the two Incra bars. My sleds are 30" deep so these are perfect. Since there are quite a few adjustment screws, if you wanted to make shorter bars, you could cut the bars in smaller sections and still have adequate adjustability.
Unfortunately the ones that I had stripped the heads on were stuck so tight that the only thing that I could do was use a utility knife to cut the plastic flush with the aluminum bar.

If you are thinking that you need two for a single sled...you don't. There's no need. Just purchase one and cut it in half. Kreg has it in their instructions, so you aren't messing anything up.
