I was very disappointed in my purchase of the Inca Miter Sled. I should have read more closely of what is included. All of the pictures in the product description page showed it with an extension and being used with the Shopsmith miter gauge. It does NOT come with an extension of any kind. They captions to the picture do state that fact and I take responsibility for missing that detail. But the product page does not show just the sled as it is purchased. All photos show a miter and extension. A bit misleading, but certainly noted. In order to use your Shopsmith miter gauge you need to remove the T-slot ring on the bottom of the miter bar. This means that you will need to reinstall the T-slot ring to the bottom of the bar every time you are done using the miter sled to use it properly on the Shopsmith table saw. I'm was surprised to see that there is no T-slot in the miter gauge slot of the Inca Miter Sled. Finally, regarding the aluminum miter bar that is installed on the drop panel, the expansion nuts that are used to lock the drop panel in position protrude too much below the bar causing the drop panel to sit to high to use with the sliding with the utility plate assembly. I had to remove the locking screws, washers, and nuts completely. For me, this sled is now useless unless I get the Incra miter gauge and an extension bar. Even then I can't use it with the drop panel properly since I can't lock it in position. Very disappointing. I take responsibility for looking at the pictures and not fully reading the description. But I think there is poor product adaptation for Shopsmith use which I don not believe was noted.
