Hey all, this is my first post here, and I have been able to find most of the answers on here just by searching, but this one still eludes me. Just some background, I have a very small shop with just enough tools to make small cabinetry, and decorative boxes, which I have been doing for a couple of months with the Porter Cable dovetail jig. I have gotten pretty good with it, but would like to start honing in on my precision, which I have found to be simple impossible with the PC. I have done enough with it to realize that every cut, even if only a 64th, or a 32nd, is slightly different due to the many variables of the jig. This leaves visible gaps, that add time, energy, and a little bit of money, that I can’t afford anymore.
That being said, I have begun to build a custom router table using Rockler’s High Pressure Laminate table, and would like to outfit it with an Incra dovetail jig, either an Incra Universal Jig, or the Ultra Lite.
Does anyone have any experience with them? I have heard that they create ridiculously precise joinery with a fair amount of ease, after the user has learned to use the jig ofcoarse.
Does anybody know if the Rockler table can be made large enough for the Ultra Lite to fit, I am leaning in this direction.
Thanks Everyone! I am excited to start to contribute to the community!
