Well Ken, Hope you are enjoying your retirement. The 4216 will certainly take up some time but very rewarding for your efforts. There are (not me) a few here who are quite crafty with it and can give you some great guidance.

There is a learning curve with the jig and a problem for me is that I don't use it often enough so when I go to use it again after a period of time, it's almost like starting a new having to read the instructions etc. etc. But once you get it set up right and can throw down the manual it's a pleasure to use.

Welcome to the forum, Ken.

Just retired myself, so I know how you feel.

Being retired is like having 6 Saturdays and 1 Sunday every week.
As for the 4216 Jig I'm still reading the manual and making mistakes
but enjoying every minute of it. Ken Pa.

Just in case you hadn't seen it, the Supplemental Manual may be more valuable than the one they include. (since it's a free download, i don't understand why they don't just throw it in the box!!)
