My early birthday present is the Incra 1000hd ($119 at Rockler in a week. Talked the store into selling at the upcoming sale price since we drove 2 hours to get there).
My confusion is with the telescoping extension and it’s scale. I’ve set it up EXACTLY according to the instructions (mounted the stop on the 4” extension and move the telescoping fence out so that the right edge of the stop is exactly 16” from the face of the blade. Then I adjusted the extensions tape so it reads 16” at the left edge of the main fence.. Made a cut on a test piece and yes, it was exactly 16”. Works great for said 16”. However, the tape reads right to left. If I extend the telescoping fence so it reads say, 17” at the left edge of the main fence (the same spot that was referenced with the previous 16” measurement), the cut piece ends up being 15” long.
What the heck am I doing wrong? My brain is about to explode.
