Miter Gauge Adjustment
If you have a contractor saw, changing to a link-type belt will substantially reduce the vibration on your saw and probably prolong the life of the bearings on both the saw and the motor. Installing a zero-clearance insert will give you better results and it made my saw run more quietly. Replacing the miter gauge that comes with the saw with something a little better (I like the Incra Miter 1000) is a step in the right direction, but if you do not own a radial arm saw and do not plan to buy one you might consider adding a sliding miter table.
