Default Positioner or Clincher

I'm looking to add either a 17” Incra Positioner or the 18.5” Jointech Clincher to a Jessem fence set-up. Being I have the fence already I only need the Clincher or Positioner with the matching templates & manual!

For those of you that have either one of these systems I'm looking for information “good or bad” on these units & the matching templates/manual.

I have the complete saw train from Jointech. While I really like it and would normally recommend it, it appears the the company is experiencing some major difficulties.
I would go with Incra.

I have the old Incra Ultra. It is great. What I need is their stop shop or flip stop to impove it. I would buy an Incra 1000HD mitre guide, but all my slots are the wrong sizes for the bar, and if I made my own bars I may not be able to add the adjustability feature (guide lock).

I have a full Clincher setup from about 5 years ago and am very pleased with it. But as said above, the company is currently not doing well.

Make sure you contact them to assure you can get product before buying from their site.

Just another couple cents worth here Doug..

I have the incra ultra 17LS and its everything they claim it to be...Small learning curve with the manuals but absolutely not a deal breaker.

I don't know that you could go wrong with either to be honest! As mentioned earlier though, Jointech seems to be having some kind of trouble.

It sounds like they may be trying the same thing Jessem did awhile back & having China make their products!

I noticed in several of your other posts that you also have the Mite-R-Slide attached to your Incra Fence! “Nice set-up by the way”
I have the older style (Canadian Made) Mast-R-Fence with the Mite-R-slide.
When the Mite-R-Slide is in the storage position behind the fence does it block or get in the way of the LS17?
