Hi everyone, not real good with internet blog or forum sites, but I’ll take a run at it.

I recently purchased a one of a kind router table from a woodworkers estate. His son was selling the equipment from the shop and I could see from the craftsmanship in the router table the his dad knew what he was doing. Anyway, the table included a Jointech CL-12 router fence system. There are more than a few pieces to the fence system, but unfortunately, there are no instructions.

I tried unsuccessfully to access the Jointech website (not quite sure why I can’t connect).

If anyone can throw me a lifeline on this it would be much appreciated. I can probably get reasonably good usage of the fence without the instructions given the time, but I’d much rather be making some sawdust.

Thanks all

Rog

You can’t get in contact with Jointech as they are no longer in business even though they still have a web site up. The fences work nice I used to have one on my old router table if you have any special questions feel free to ask and I will try to answer your questions.

Thanks Richard, I haven’t had a chance to put the table to use yet. I’m going to keep your name in mind when I do use it in the future. I was able to purchase a 10 year old Laguna 18” bandsaw from the same shop. Have to run the wiring for the saw and find a good location for both in the shop.

That’s kind weird as I used to have the same band saw as well? It’s a good band saw as well. I sold mine and purchased a brand new LT 18’’ with a Driftmaster fence and the ceramic guides. This is something I would recommend for the saw if doing a lot of resawing (Driftmaster fence). Did you see the saw work? Just asking because when I bought mine used the guy didn’t even know how to turn it on due to the 3 switch start up. Just let me know if you have any questions.

The bandsaw I purchased has a 2 switch start up. I must pull the top switch out then rotate the bottom switch to the right. The Luguna I purchased has a 13” resaw capability which will be plenty for my purposes. I believe it has the cool blocks on it as well. I ran my new wiring to it, (runs 30 amp @ 240 volt). Using the 1.25 resaw blade that came with the saw I ripped a piece of oak. It was almost as smooth as as the table saw cuts, and it was a very accurate cut. A big upgrade from my 1/2 HP 14” Rockwell (which I still have a soft spot for).

The blade or the guides must be off a tad though, the saw makes a brief rubbing noise once a rotation. With time, I’ll get to the bottom of it.

I know the knew Luguna’s have matched resaw with wheel size and the must have multiple manufacturing locations now. This saw appears to have been manufactured by ACM for Luguna.

I know it is early, but I believe this is the last bandsaw I will buy (which is more than can be said for some of my other tools)

Thanks again
