Question Just got an incra positioner an have a question?

Is this the correct procedure? Hold a board up to router bit. Set centering jig tape to bit width. Then slide fence to the width of the board. Now you slide the templet to the centering position. Start cutting tails on the a's then pins on the b's. I also had set the rabbet to the proper with. Here's the deal, one edge is off by about .032. also when varing the board width as long as it lands on a half pin is the procedure the same?

Hi Bill,

I have one of the older style Incra Original Jig and it came with detailed DVD.

Was there a DVD with yours?

I don't have mine with me at work.

I've never used the centering tape on mine. I eyeball the center and make a groove with scrap the same width as my work pieces, then flip it end-for-end and make a second pass. Now I adjust the fence to place the bit in the middle of the groove and zero my scale. This is the method that Incra recommends in their instructions. If you've lost the original manual, you can download one from here.

lexB. I know how to center the way you stated. Once its centered do you lock and set to diameter of the bit then slide to the board width. then slide in the templete and set to suggested center.
