The INCRA Jig that started it all more than twenty years ago has been reissued, and the same qualities that made it such a knockout then are still relevant in workshops today. The only two moving parts are the locking knob and the single-piece upper carriage. It’s as simple and reliable as your favorite hammer, yet it indexes on 1/32-inch increments with the same 1/1000-inch positioning accuracy and repeatability of our top-of-the-line LS Positioners. The rigid, glass-reinforced resin body consists of upper and lower halves and provides 8-inch of solid fence travel. Our patented incremental racks are installed where the halves of the jig meet, with each rack offering hundreds of teeth on a precise 1/32-inch spacing. When the clamping knob is tightened, the teeth mesh, causing the fence and carriage to instantly "center up" on perfect multiples of 1/32-inch five to ten times more precisely than working by eye alone. By adding a fence and a couple of simple fixtures, 3/8-inch box joint and dovetails can be produced equally spaced or variably spaced. The 1/2-inch dovetail template can also be made half-blind, through, sliding, or cornerpost. For even more variety, the 11 box joint templates and 29 dovetail templates from the INCRA Master Reference Guide can be adapted to the Original INCRA Jig to produce literally billions of joinery variations. The incremental nature of the Jig causes fence setups for any repetitive cutting operations such as grooving and fluting to suddenly become lightning fast and dead-on accurate, box joints and dovetails. Adding a fence with a larger router bit opening makes it simple to remove material in controlled steps when doing everyday edge forming operations. The printed instructions are clear, concise, and fully illustrated. The FREE 1-hour instructional DVD covers basic setups, user-made fixtures and accessories, and several typical router table applications.
