I have an ooriginal Strong Tool Design Joint Matic Horizontal router table.
I bought this from a gentleman a few years ago who was selling his grandfather’s
woodworking tools. I intended to modify it to a slot mortiser. I haven’t taken a
picture of it yet but here’s a link to the system at LumberJocks:

Will post photos later this weekend.

It is mostly cast aluminum with a chain/gear lift mechanism.
Really well made and fairly heavy. It was built by a now-close
tool design shop in Michigan. It comes with the original manual
which describes how to make dados, rabbets, and even dovetails.
The table has a miter slot and a miter gauge is included.
There is also an adjustable angle jig.

It has been in my shop for several years how. I tried a couple
of cuts using small PC router which installed with no modification.
It is time to pass it on to someone who will put it to good use.

My problems trying to determine what to ask for the unit.
Do you think $400 is out of the question? Would appreciate
input, but will start it there if anyone is interested. Thanks.

It certainly looks well built and not overly complicated, if I were in the market this is something like what I’d be looking for. As for value, I don’t think $400 would be out of the question for the right buyer, perhaps a little on the high side but you can always go down negotiating a sale and never up.

I, too just bought a used, in excellent condition, joint-matic with the manuals, alas, no video.
I have made a copy and will be scanning them to PDF, this weekend.
PM me and I’ll be glad to send a set.
Mine had no accessories, I would be interested in seeing pictures of any accessories you may have so I may attempt to make similar jigs for my “New” toy.

Hi Dave, I was wondering about getting a copy of that joint matic manual I just acquired one about a month ago with out it and sure could use one.

Have your say...
