A mistake , Don’t know what caused this?

I used red oak, purple heart, sorry about the blurry second picture.
Just getting used to the gadget, but it is fairly easy to figure out, just takes a little getting used to, the thing is so accurate that you have to very careful with cleaning the sawdust off the table and making sure everthing is held true. Also I have a Rockler Incra set of bits, there questionable, I think for this setup I need high quality bits like Whiteside.
Anyone else have this setup I’d apreciate some tips.
I still worship and admire the WW’s who can do it by hand.

Mark, I don’t have one of these but they do beautiful work and it looks like you’re getting the hang of it.

Love my Incra Jig ultra.

Did your work: tip on the horizontal fence doohickey, or did the bit slip in the collet or did you not have the fence side marked and the “C” passes were positioned fence against the opposite edge? And here I thought I’d found every conceivable way to booger up a double. I’ve had mine for years and never yet done the corner post, so don’t get me wrong here. I am envious of your endeavor. That purpleheart looks great against the oak.

I have a double-dovetail (purpleheart and walnut) in clamps right this moment. I hope it comes out looking as nice as what you have here.

Great show Mark:

Looking nice I’ve had my Incra for about 5 years but have yet to do dovetails on it. It is also my Saw fence TS III and router fence.

I think I may have crossed the fence side because the mark got sanded off and I thought it was the right side. maybe the problem. Yea I thought what the heck jump into the hard one.

5 years and no dovtails!! just goes to show that it is useful for alot more than jointery! I was thinking of mickeymouseing my LS sys to my tablesaw somehow,( temporary top to bolt the LS to my table saw?) think that would be feasable?

Mark:

I bought the TS III about 5 years ago. It then upgraded to the LS slider. Now I’ve got about 36” on the slider.

The TS system is mounted on Aluminum tubes on the front and back of the saw. and the LS positioner is mounted to a cross piece that attaches to the front and back tubes. I’ve got the 6’ and the 8’ tubes. I originally didn’t have the sliding table on the saw so the tubes went from left to right. And, I didn’t want to cut the tubes.

I’ve not looked at the router LS in a while so I’m not sure what the modification is. My tube is about 18” longer on the right so I reposition the LS mount to the end of the tubes so that I can use it on the router.

In the end position is cannot be used on the saw because it doesn’t go far enough to the left. It pulls itself out of the mount.

So it is a problem if I need to route and then rip and then route. It means repositioning the jig. I have permanent stops so it just pick-up, move, use, pick-up, move use. It’s always in alignment.

Hey Karson, I think I need to make some other modifiation because the LS I have doesn’t have outer rails for the fence, just the center deal. or maybe I should just leave well enough alone.
I do like your setup very vesitile!
Thanks ALL
