The stock gauge on the Hammond Glider sliding table is for 90 degree cuts or forward angles (only) with the small optional gauge. I would like to make a miter gauge, but coming up with a design that is convenient to use is not easy. I can do metalworking too, so making parts is not a problem. Ideally the gauge would:

Be easy to change angle and lock securely
Have the right edge close to the table edge
Have angle stops for common angles
Have an accurate scale to show angle
Adjust +- 60 degrees from 90.
Have sliding depth stops
Not require a plate under the gauge (piece being cut sits directly on table top)

Anyone know of a good design? What is the best design on normal sliding table saws?

I'd probably try to copy the wadkin PK angle gage. It has a double angle system which would be nice for miters. Making some stops for common angles would be great as well. Also wood inserts for close cutting to the blade.

I assume a set-up like this would mean taking off the current finger scale, which I would be reticent to do given how much I use it. Thus, I think a dedicated saw would be awesome.
