I just picked up an Icra IBox jig because the cabinet I am making (to hoold shop tools) calls for box joints on the main carcass and the drawers. I realize I could have easily made a jig, but I want to get this cabinet made and get my shop together first, and its always good to get a new tool.
Here is the problem. Out of the box I noticed that the silver and red knobs used to adjust the finger key mechanism were stiff – OK it s new, but I had to turn them hard, and I had to constantly back off the silver knob to be able to turn the red knob. This is contrary to what the instructions say. I do have the lock knob open ion the top of the jig, I have centered the allen screw in the slot (the “home” position), and nothing appears to be in the way . It almost feels like it is cross threaded or somehow out of whack in the screw mechanism.
Has anyone used this jig (I know there are a bunch of guys out there that have one…) and if so, how hard is it to turn those knobs? I am really struggling, and I have huge strong hands.
Let me know. I really appreciate any feedback.
