One Step Closer to Becoming an Incra Snob!

Just picked up my newest toy!!! A rare CL listing for an Incra product. Picked up the Incra 30” UIltra Jig for $120. Now I just need to finish my Monster Router Table and I am in business.

I am wondering though if I can adapt this to work on my Shopsmith in TS mode. It looks to me like it will work. My only concern in proper alignment and stability.

More to come!!!

Check with Incra’s customer service. They have Shopsmith versions of most of their products. You might just need a few parts.

LOL, It isn’t cheap being on disability so I can spend all day searching Craigslist for bargains! ;)

Now if the Social Security Dept would get off their butts and process my reinstatement! Funny how quick the government is when it comes to getting money owed them! But that is a conversation for a whole different forum…..

It won’t take long after you get this set up on your router table to get hooked. I have had the ultra for several years and it is a great system. Let me know if you can’t find the owners manual. Great buy.

You will love it… I started buying incra stuff, and now I’m a complete fan of it (ended up reselling in my country, argentina)

WELCOME TO THE CLUB…...... I can sell a saw, but not my incra. I’m waiting for them to make circular saw fence. I might have to get rid of my tablesaw (again) if they do that…...

Sweet score, I just bought a Incra 1000 and paid 110.00. I always wondered if these things were worth it. I have to say I cut up 16 miter’s for 4 frames and LOVE this thing.

Congrats to you for the big score!

You can’t go wrong buying Incra equipment.
I have an LS-25 and love it.
You should be able to but the book and the templates for about 20 bucks.

I have the LS positioner ultra (contains the jig I believe) and love it. I also have the 1000 and it stays on my table saw virtually for every cut but rips. I can’t say enough about how much the incra systems have made it easier to get repeatable results. The ease of the positioner…and the micro adjustment is just fantastic. If there weren’t so many good reviews of this I would have to add another. I got a great price on mine also (bought mine from a private party)...but not from CL…I don’t think I have ever seen one for sale in my area on CL…if so it would probably be gone in an instant. You made a great score…and the manuals should be easy to find. There are also several books out on how to make projects with the incra systems….but the main instruction set is definitely a must have. As for the shopsmith…sounds like that is being covered. If you ever have any questions on the useage or setup of the jig, send me a pm and I will surely try to help.
