make bevel cuts freehand, or you can use the miter gauge to
guide and support the stock. After the table is adjusted to
the proper tilt, lock the miter gauge in the table slot that
runs perpendicular to the flat of the blade, so that the miter

of the chamfer. The miter gauge with an extension supports
