Incra LS - TS on ridgid 4512

Incra LS - TS on ridgid 4512

09-22-2013 03:35 AM by EMC | 16 comments »

About a month ago I purchased a Ridgid 4512 to replace my dw744. Although this is not intended to be a review of the 4512, I will say that I am quite pleased with it. Once I had it assembled and set up I went through it carefully and set up the blade, fence and miter slots to all be parallel and was able to achieve great accuracy (within a few hundredths) without a lot of trouble. I have read about the issue many have had with the blade shifting position as it goes up and down, but I h...

Worth the money...

Worth the money...

I did see an excellent review on this jig after posting mine, but here are my thoughts anyway… I purchased the I-Box about 4 months ago after seeing a positive comment on LJs and noticing it on sale at a local tool vendor, but did not take it out of the box as I didn’t have an immediate need for box joints – was in the middle of my bench build. I was recently asked to build a custom oak makeup desk with drawers for a friend, and thought maybe I would try out the jig fo...

Incra - A great router fence

Incra - A great router fence

I purchased this after seeing it at the Woodworkers show in Dallas this year. I didn’t get it at the show becausewoodpeckers 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 atthe show I saw some features that I liked. Now, like at all shows they have nice slick demos that they doto make their product look simple and easy. Well, for the most part it is simple and easy. The sys...

The best table saw (and shop) accessory I have ever owned

The best table saw (and shop) accessory I have ever owned

02-26-2008 08:45 PM by RickH | 17 comments »

At the first woodworking show I attended years ago I became aware of the Incra table saw fence systems, and bought their first version almost 10 years ago. I upgraded to their LS system (lead-screw) about 4 years ago by purchasing a new postioner w/machined fence, which is even easier to use. What the Incra fence does is allow for precise and repeatable fence alignment on your table saw: > Precision – allows adjustments as fine as .001”, though their standard measuring meth...

Incra Measuring/Marking tool does it in Decimal and Metric!

Incra Measuring/Marking tool does it in Decimal and Metric!

01-21-2010 05:11 AM by GaryK | 16 comments »

A while ago I posted a review on a decimal measuring tape and some of you liked decimals. If you haven’t already HERE is it. Well for those of you that do, I have another product that uses them. It’s the Incra Professional T-Rule. As you can see from he first picture it has the same features as the regular Incra rules except this one has markings for decimal and metric! Now this feature is only included on the “Professional” model. Also it still retains the stand...

Incra's 52inch LS positioner package!

Incra's 52inch LS positioner package!

12-21-2009 05:28 AM by BigBard | 16 comments »

One year ago I began the quest to make things from wood. I have learned so much in one year and I still have a long way to go. After a satisfying purchase of a Incra1000se miter gauge, I thought I couldn’t go wrong with this LS positioner plunge. I was right, this system cuts extremely accurate. That micro-adjust knob is excellent, you can move it by the thousands of an inch. You can truly move the fence with shear accuracy. The wonderfence did take a few extra steps to square up but it...

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

Incra Ultra Lite on Jessem Table

05-16-2011 01:20 AM by TechRedneck | 6 comments »

Being a weekend woodworker (some evenings too) my time is important. Most of the joinery I’ve done is the basic stuff.. Biscuits, dadoes, M&T and pocket hole. I wanted a system to make some nice jewelry boxes for my grandchildren and step up my work a notch without spending a ton of money on a bunch of dovetail jigs, and making a bunch of box joint jigs that take up room in the shop. The Incra system interested me. I watched the videos and thought the concept was interesting fr...

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter - for 1/8" Kerf Blades

02-02-2010 05:41 PM by PetVet | 17 comments »

You can purchase this product from Incra for about $35. I was interested in getting a splitter that I would use, as my rip guard/splitter was a pain to install every time I wanted to rip something.It comes as a kit, with an installation jig, and several splitters of various widths. The instruction sheet was fairly easy to follow. You need a couple pieces of 1/2 inch stock, one for the jig to attach to, and one as a test piece. They have you drill the holes in your saw insert with the prov...

Precision at a Bargain Price

Precision at a Bargain Price

If you are like me, you see the pictures of the Incra Table Saw or Router fences, drool a bit, look at your wallet, sigh, and move on. While trolling Craig’s List, I stumbled onto the Incra Jig.. for $30! I looked at the picture and, after my disappointment that someone was NOT selling the table saw system for $30 (HA!), I was pretty intrigued by the tool and did some Internet research… Apparently, the Incra Jig (or Incra Universal Jig) was Incra’s first product. It...
