no previous part Part 1 of Sketchup Resources series Part 2: Incra Right Angle Fixture »

while working and designing my router table I noticed that there are no Incra Models on Sketchup 3D Warehouse at all. I do not have any of the LS positioner systems, and would have liked to have a 3D model version to incorporate into my design and see how it would work with different sizes table tops…

I do however have the Original Incra Jig, and figured I could model it out, and put it on 3D Warehouse for anyone that might be interested in it, and could use it in their designs. so without any further a due, here it is:

It is based on main component that consists the 2 base/top parts as components for easy moving around to different distances. you can just model/add a fence of your preference ,and see how it would work on a given table top, or certain configuration.

Peace.

EDIT: Special Thanks to DaveR for helping to clean and polish this model up and reduce it’s size!

Thanks for posting. I have one of these jigs and I used it to make some jewelry boxes.

Lev, you are a scholar and a gentleman. Thank you.

I have almost finished designing my next router table, and have been looking for models of this jig and its standard fence and right angle fixture. On 30-Dec-08 I wrote to Incra asking them if they had, or knew of an SU model for this jig, but they don’t. Believe it or not, They wrote back to me on 30 December!! I expected them to be closed for the holidays.

With your permission, I’ll write back to them and give them the link to your model.

Thank you PG_Zac, I’m glad it was useful for someone. Feel free contacting Incra with the Link, if It can help others it’ll be even better.

in the mean time you might want to check the next installment in this blog series that is the Incra Right Angle Fixture so you can use that one as well.

As a thrifty woodworker this jig is a godsend. Not only is it extremely easy to use, it also comes with an excellent video and manual and is fantastic for use with a table saw as well. A great buy and a must-have, just like the other Incra products.

That’s a beauty you got there, and I think it’s also a lot simpler to achieve for an average DIY-er such as myself. I helped a buddy once with a pretty adventurous attempt in tool cabinet making – instructions are found in Lord Nibbo’s blog. That was an eye opener and certainly made my heart skipped a bit when I saw the end result.

I am a big fan for Incra products too – they well worth every penny and like they say, really ‘nifty in tight corners’.
