Default Question about the old Jointech

IPM-1 with fence system. I was given one along with templates and instructions, but I'm so new to all of this that I don't fully understand how to use it. Is there an instructional video anywhere? Thanks all.

You likely won't get much help from Jointech as the company appears to be nearly out of business. They haven't even been reliably answering phone calls. The president and creator of the technical designs for their products died several years ago and I've heard that a family member is trying to handle what's left of the business.

I don't believe they ever made an instructional video for the IPM-1, or at least I never received or heard of one existing for it. I have an IPM-1 that I bought a few months after they came on the market and I frequently use it on my router table. I use it mostly as just a precision fence, but have done a small bit of dovetailing with it using the provided templates.

If you have any questions I may be able to help you. Send me a PM.

Charley,
I have a Jointech Saw Train and hate to see the demise of the company. It's a great concept.
It's a great business opportunity for someone, don't you think?

Thanks guys. I know it's a good fence, but I don't need a fence, lol. It's got the directions booklet with all the templates. It's almost like new as he didn't use it that much (no wonder he just threw it in with the purchase, lol). I may just put it on Craig's list as I have a few other tools, jigs to sell. Charley, I'll let you know. Thanks so much.

I have recently purchased items from Jointech and they appear to still be in business.
They also have a video which can be purcchased.
I have also used the Incra system and they appear to be quite the same. The Jointech router assembly is a little sturdier and each has benefits.

If you decide to sell it, please send me a PM. I could use another if the price is reasonable.

I'm thinking bad service since their website has sale price and information updates in the last week. Just looked at their site after seeing this thread as I had never heard of anyone other thn Incra on the market for this type of system.
