Great Product
These slipped in the miter slots of my DW744 table saw and were loose side to side. A quick and easy turn of the set screws and the side to side movement was eliminated. I used these to make a crosscut sled and although I did not wax the bottom of the sled, I can move it easily with one finger. Never worry about distortion because of humidity, and can be reused on different brand saw down the road. Great product, well worth the money.

Great product!
I was able to employ these bars exactly as intended, and I expect to do it again, when building a more [mathematically] accurate cross-cut sled.

I have used these miter bars for several years since I first saw one. They sure beat making your own, and the best part is they always fit, no fine tuning.

Good!
This is a nice miter bar. I don’t know how well it will wear, given that it is aluminum instead of steel. But with a lottle care, I expect it to last for years.

Making a Cross Cut Sled for my table Saw

Making a Cross Cut Sled for my table Saw
Mark S on Aug 20, 2018
Every couple of years, I like to build a new table saw sled. The old ones get chewed up over time, and after a while, I'm ready to upgrade. The more experience I have, the more I expect from myself and my tools. With seasonal changes, I notice a real difference in how tight or loose the wooden runners are. This aluminum miter bar looks like a great way to have consistent performance with no slop or binding in all conditions. The tapped holes on the top are a nice touch, saving time in assembly.

Robert B on Jul 5, 2018
Using them because of the fact that they are adjustable. Seems like the ones I made from wood. Seems to stress and the weather. When it's called to loose, when it's hot to tight. These aluminum ones I can adjust them to the weather conditions. I square cut

Danny L on Jul 9, 2018
I have a problem to find screws to attach the bar to the wood. The countersink on the bar is not deep enough, the screw head doesn't sit all the way and therefore touches the bottom of the slot. what kind of screw should I look for ? Thanks
Cesar C on Aug 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It might be best if you attach the bar with fasteners from the top. I don't think the countersinks on the bar were meant for fasteners, they were relief for the edge of the tapped holes. Worked for me.
will the Aluminum Miter Bar fit my bosch table saw ?
merv s on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. That's what I have and have had no problem.
Will they fit the DeWalt DW745 table saw?
Chalky on Dec 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Dewalt portable table saws have a standard 3/4 miter slot.and I tried it just to make sure with the Rockler Miter Bar.
How many adjustment screws does each of these bars have? What is the spacing?
A shopper on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: On the 24" bar there are 5 adjustment screws centered about the midpoint. They are 5 5/8" apart.
The threads on the miter bar are 1/4" 20 but Rockler doesn't sell a handle with the same thread profile, only 5/16" - 18. Any idea where I can find a tall handle with 1/4" - 20 male threads?
Jon B on Feb 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe the threaded holes are meant to attach the bar to the underside of a wooden jig. If you want to attach a handle with different Dia/Pitch directly to the bar, I would suggest using a tap and die to cut a new one.
Can this be used with the t track?
Jared M on Jul 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It will not fit inside the T-track. It has the same outer measurements as a standard T-track.
Where do I find 1/4-20 screws to attach a miter bar to a plywood jig?
David W on Jan 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These screws are readily available at any hardware store or even the big box home centers in thier packaged screw selections.
The mitre track is 5/8 wide and and just under 5/16 deep will these bars fit this. Second the table top length is 22 " would it be better to order the 24 " length bar?
Rockler 24" Aluminum Miter Bar
Item #: 26232
John T on Oct 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This mitre bars are made for a slick fit for a standard 3/4" mitre track. You ned to consider other options. You could make your own out of quarter sawn hardwood as an example. In any event I prefer longer mitre bars as it can come in handy when you need to pull the fixture way back on the in feed side.
where did you purchase the 1/4-20 screws with outside diameter head small enough to sit in the recess????
Eric S on Aug 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My approach when making my sled was to drill holes through the panel and attach it to the miter bar with 1/4-20 screws. You can choose to use pan head or flat head screws, you just have to make sure you countersink the holes in the panel. Hope this helps.
What are the actual dimensions of the bar? Not concerned about length, just height and width.
Marshall M on May 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 3/4" wide x 3/8" height
Will this fit most table saws? I'm using a black and decker firestorm.
zack m on Jul 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It fits my DeWalt table saw with a 3/4 slot in the table. The bar is mounted to a home made cross cut sled. One thing that I have to be careful of is when the sled extends too far beyond the table, the miter bar has decreased contact with the slot and allows the sled to wiggle side to side. The is a function of a short table on the table saw rather than an issue with the miter bar.
Will it fit a Craftsman evolv 10 inch portable table saw? The Track is 21/32.
Jeremy H on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have a model 113.... contractor saw and it works great. I think all those slots area about the same.
Does this come with a "end plate?"
Timothy F on Aug 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mine didn't come with end plate. None was needed.
I bought the 24 inch length, miter bars. I know you use 1/4-20. Do you use coarse, or fine thread? Thank you for the help. Keith
heyseed on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: In the description of the threaded holes it as you say specifies 1/4 -20 fasteners. That designation is 1/4 diameter bolt shaft and 20 threads per inch. Twenty threads per inch is thought of as coarse thread.
How many mounting 1/4-20 screw threads are there in the 18 in. bar and where are they located?
Dave D on Aug 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There are three mounting screw threads. The two outer mounting holes are 1.75 in from the end. The middle one is 9 inches from the end. All dimensions given are from end of bar to center of the hole.
Can the bars be cut to different lengths?
A shopper on May 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but depending on the final length in your application you may have to drill and countersink additional holes.
Do this miterbar fit my DW 745 table saw?
Roy B on Aug 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This bar will work with any tool that has a standard 3/4" wide by 3/8" deep miter slot.
Will the miter bars fit my skill saw 10” table saw?
Barry M on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The measurement of the bars is 3/4" wide x 3/8" deep. You will need to check the dimension of the miter track on your saw.
How many adjustment screws are on the 36” bars ?
Houston on Feb 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There are 7 adjustment screws along the length of the bar.
Are the adjusting screws used to ride against the table grooves to provide the proper fit ?
Don G on Oct 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. And for tension adjustment
Will it work on the riged table?
Smells guuuud on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used it on my Saw Stop table saw when I made a Sled. Works fine. If your table has the standard slots for the guide that comes with the saw it should be fine.
Is looseness in the miter track accounted for by backing out the setscrews the appropriate amount and having the head of the setscrew ride along the inside of the track, or do the setscrews go completely through the bar to ride on the flat bottom of the screw?
MICHAEL G on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They do go completely through the bar, and that is how I adjust mine for a snug fit.
If my sled is 24" deep, should I opt for the longer bars, or stick to the 24" bar?
Bob M on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is a matter of choice and use. If you are making doors etc that are wide and they just fit your sled then you can't raise the blade w/o pulling the sled way back on the table. So longer bars helps. However that has limits given the depth of the inside feed area of the table. I ended up using the 24 in and lived with its limits.You could always make 2 sleds.
Will my saw handle a crosscut sled, and do I need to grind the dang tabs out of the miter grooves? Model 137.218073
Tremendous T on Jan 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am not familiar with your saw, but if it has a 3/4" miter slot this should work fine as it is .743" wide plus the adjustment screws will make it nice and snug..
how many adjustment screws are on the 30 " bar ?
tom c on Jan 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have an 18" bar and there are 4 adjustment screws, 5.5" apart.
How many adjustment screws does the 18"bar have? What is the spacing?
pedro v on Oct 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm not exactly sure about the 18" bar, but the 24" bar has 5 set screws for adjustment. The first position is 3/4" from the end and each subsequent position is 5 5/8" on center. I would think that the 18" bar would have 4 positions and maintain the same layout.
I would like to buy the 24" bar,cut it in half =2-12" bars. Will the mounting holes come out to secure the 2 12" bars?
Larry D on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There are 5 equally spaced miter slot adjustment locations. The center one is at the center of the bar. you would lose it. hope this helps.
Can you provide miter bars with Spring-loaded bearings as you use in the Rockler Miter Sled?

Did this bar fit universal t track item 22104?
Omar R on Dec 14, 2017
Thinking of buying a 36" bar & cutting in half instead of 2 18" bars to save some $$$. I'm assuming that there is a hole that divides the track in half and not an adjustment cam at the mid point of the slide. True? Is there any difference between a 36' bar cut in half and an 18" bar?
