Default incra

Hi I been doing wood working for a long time ,and own two routers one is installed in a table I made and the other is for free hand. Last year I purchase a incra system for my table saw and add a new router table off the end.The incra works great for my table saw.For the routing of box joints and dove tails I am having a problem ,setting up the incra to cut the different joints right.I read the book that came with it ,but dont know how to set the different ruler tapes that came with it.The joint do not come out right .I could use some advice on what I am doing wrong.

Dennis:

I have the same setup. I took an afternoon, and did nothing but play with the rules provided, ruined a lot of pine, failed miserably for about the 1st hour. The Rules and Templates do work, once you get the hang of it. So, be patient, and ruin a lot of pine. I have to ask you to check a few obvious things - you have the correct router bit/Rule Template; you're precise in moving the positioner; you lock-down both the positioner and the front fence lock - I assume you're using the TS-LS fence.

I think you can download the cutting diagrams, if you don't have the original book - if not, contact Mark Mueller at Incra (see below) - he's customer-service personified; and he'll talk you through this, or probably send you a new book if you need it.

I was going to say contact Incra, which is what I would hve done, but yeah, I would have played with it first.

Your welcome Sean

I know it's small but if you right click it and select ZOOM In you can blow it out to make it easy to view.
