Worth every penny
Used the 18" miter bars to build a cross cut sled. Perfect fit and easy to install. A light coat if paste wax makes them glide on my table saw. The adjustment screws make for a perfect and adjustable fit. No more worry about wood swell or minor wobble in the sled. I get perfect 90degree cuts worry free

Nice miter bar for crosscut sled.
Made a crosscut sled for my Skilsaw table saw. Used carpet tape to position it on the bottom of the sled, drilled small pilot hole, then took off the bar and drilled the correct sized holes and countersunk!

Great miter bar
These are just what I needed after tuning the miter slots in my saw. My large cross cut sled tracks perfect. I will be picking up a few more for other jigs and sleds I have!

Very nice miter bars
These are awesome. The small parts jig has one and that's was all I needed. I bought this for the Adjustable box joint jig. Really easy to adjust for a perfect side.
There is virtually no side to side play.
Easy to put on and easy to adjust.

Miter Bar
Solid, straight, easy to adjust. The pre-threaded holes lined right up with the miter gauge head I had that didn't fit the slot in my router table.

Very nice
I am very satisfied with the miter bar. It looks and feels great, and most importantly it works great. I like the little nylon screws in the side which allow you to eliminate any slop. I'm using this in the 36" Rockler miter track and they pair perfectly. I recommend this product.

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

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
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.
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.
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.
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: Eric I think I understand your question so this is the answer. I used standard flat head 1/4-20 screws. There was no special head. I just used a chamfer bit to recess the head in my sled. The actual hole was a close tolerace clearance for the screww shaft.
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.
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?
smitty on Sep 30, 2017
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 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.
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.
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.
Can this 36" bar be cut in half to use as two 18" bars? Would the mounting holes be adequate and side nylon set screws still be functional to maintain alignment?
Dave G on Jul 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I bought those for building my cutoff box (large one) and works fine, yes you can cut it to fit your need and make new holes, plastic holds ok for adjustment, if you were to use every day heavily, you will have to check for play etc. very nice products , a great service
Will this work with a 1960 Wizard/Western Auto table saw?
Vitamin D on Apr 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I suggest you measure the slot in your saw table. If it is 3/4" wide x 3/8" deep this miter bar will fit. This bar also has small screws in its side which can adjust for a small side clearance
I have a SawStop cabinet saw and the tracks are 27”. I already have 2 unopened Rockler 36” miter bars that I bought a couple of years ago. Can I cut them down to fit a crosscut sled on my tablesaw or do I need to order shorter ones? The sled will be 27” front to back.
William K on Nov 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Greetings,
On a number of occasions I have cut these bars down with good success. I used a simple hacksaw, cleaned up the cut and beveled to come into conformity with the slight camfered edges. Then I used a blue sharpie to “paint” the cut so that for the most part it blended in with the original color.
Do I need to use thread locking chemicals or screw locking hardware to secure the mounting screws from loosening?
John S on Jan 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Using a removable/temporary thread locking compound would be a “best practice”.
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.
does it work on my sawstop table saw?
Ramala on May 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I really do not know as I don't have that type of table saw. you could clamp both ends down so it wouldn't slide around. Sorry I couldn't be of any help for you.
Why aren't screws included? I'm having a difficult time finding 1/4-20 countersunk screws with a very thin head. Argh.
Dick R on Mar 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not sure this will help, but when I use these on a table saw sled, I counterbore the holes in the sled, so the heads of the machine screws are below the surface. Also, I make the holes wider than the screws, so I can readjust things if needed.
Will bars work on a harbor freight table saw?
David Y on Jan 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Rockler miter bars will fit any standard 3/4" x 3/8" miter slot.
What are the demensions
Wide n height?
Craig R on Dec 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The one I purchased is 0.365" High, 0.73" Wide with set screws to adjust for lateral slack. That 0.005 shy of 3/8" and 0.02 shy of 3/4". Hope this helps.
Will this fit a Delta 10 inch contractor table saw #36-725?
Eric L on Oct 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't know, I don't own a delta 10 inch saw #36-725; however, this miter bar is adjustable, so unless it is too large to fit in the delta slot with all adjustment taken out, it more than likely would fit with adjustment.
Do this miterbar fit my DW 745 table saw?
Roy B on Aug 9, 2018

Will the miter bars fit my skill saw 10” table saw?
Barry M on Jun 4, 2018

Are the adjusting screws used to ride against the table grooves to provide the proper fit ?
Don G on Oct 30, 2017
