There are times when just having power tools is not enough. That's where power tools accessories come in. For example, the taper jig, used to make tapers when making angle cuts on table saws or radial arm saws. It measures up to a 3” per foot taper. It is two pieces hinged at one end and the side in the center for adjustment.
Another accessory that is very handy to have around is the clamping miter gauge. The clamping miter gauge is safer than standard miter gauges. It has a comfortable D-handle grip, built-in sliding stop, and positive clamping trigger. It fits standard miter gauge slots, 3/8" by 3/4" with positive angle stops at 90 and 45 degrees both left and right.
