I purchased this after seeing it at the Woodworkers show in Dallas this year. I didn’t get it at the show because
woodpeckers had it cheaper and free shipping. (Saved $80)
I have been looking at it for a while, but thought what’s the big deal, my fence works just fine. Then at
the show I saw some features that I liked. Now, like at all shows they have nice slick demos that they do
to make their product look simple and easy.
Well, for the most part it is simple and easy. The system I bought comes with a book and templates. The book
has full size drawings of all their joints, making it great to hold your piece up to it to see how it will fit. Once
you have decided on the joint you want you just take out the matching template and insert it into the slide.
Use that to make your cuts. That is a simple explaination with details left out but it is simple.
I really like being able to move the fence .001” at a time.
As you can see from the last two photos I had to add an extension to my router table to mount it. It
does take quite a bit of room.
All in all it has upped the precision and repeatabilty to my work. It’s a great buy and worth it.
Also comes with a nice little DVD showing it’s features and how to set it up.
