Default Incra Ultra Lite Jig

I bought the Incra Lite Jig a while ago. I am just starting to try to use it.

I bought a book with about 50 plastic templates in it. When I took them out of the box it became confusing. Partially confusing because I took it out sometime ago and didn't organize them.

The Incra jig, as I understand moves in increments of 1/32 of an inch. The templates do not show this.

Does anyone know if a template comes with the jig that is in 1/32 of an inch? My jig allows you to have three templates installed at once.

Thanks

It came with a DVD disk that helps alot, did you get one with yours if not you may want to get one...

Are you able to read the 1/32 inch scale? On my Ulta lite I can't without the benefit of cheater glasses and a magnifying glass.

Hi SB

Yep, the peepers are one of my body parts that are still working But I always have my glasses on ...that's to say my bi-focals are working..

I guess you could use your finger nail ,each click would 1/32" on the rib bar (8 clicks = 1/4" and so on )

Corey,

It's contagious. I was at the home depot yesterday and they had an 8 inch grinder that had magnifiers built into the guards. I felt 'old' because I thought that wasn't such a bad idea.........

I'm not familiar with the "ultra lite" model, but I have the book with templates. Besides most of them dealing with the patterns in the book, there is also a series of various constant spacings. However, the normal rulers all are marked at 1/32 inch. The printed numbers are in 32nds, e.g. there is a little red '8' at 1/4 inch.

I just looked at incra's web site, and the Ultra Lite has the same rack mechanism as mine. The teeth are 1/32 inch.
