I made a simple add-on for cutting miters without having to adjust the miter gauge. An angled block, like you see in the drawing, fits tightly around the face of the miter gauge.
Itís surprising how accurately the block helps cut 45° miters. And you can flip it over to make the cut on the end of the mating workpiece. If you need to fine-tune a cut, just slip some paper shims between the block and the face of your miter gauge for a perfect cut.
