Default Simple miter square

Others have mentioned about the need to be able to quickly, easily, and accurately set up the EZ track for cutting miters. I have a sliding compound miter saw (scms) that I use for that task, but there are ways to easily do it using EZ track.

The simplest I've found is shown in the pics. By adding a slotted extension onto the side of the EZ track and then affixing a framing square via the slot in the extension, you have a nice mitering capability. The slotted extension can be left on the track, removed, or slid out of the way, if needed. The framing square attaches/removes quickly also. In the pic, it's set up to cut 25˚. This particular set-up allows for a 50˚ max. cut.

On my enclosed top EZ-1, no problem using it for 3/4" material; thinner material just needs a spacer under it. Using open track on saw horses, it works just as well.
