I’ m new at this so forgive any mistakes—but have to start somewhere. My question is does anyone use an incra jig, got one a year or so ago and never set it up. If it can do what it says it may be woth the time, thought I would ask here with all of this experience maybe someone has one. Thanks ,,,,bill

I have on as well, but have not yet set it up as It seems it’s limited to making joinery on parts of up to 6”, which might be too small for my needs. Although it does look promising if you’re planing to make smaller things.

I have one also and am in the process of putting my router table together. Will have it checked out in a couple of weeks, so am also interested in any inputs.
