Default Incra LS Positioner questions

I bought the Incra LS Positioner 25(super system) months ago but just got around to building my router table and installing it. The install was pretty straight forward but I have one issue.

After the setup was complete, I installed the right angle fixture and noticed when I put the slightest bit of tension on the plastic screws(even no tension, just close to the fence), the plastic screws seem to rub on the rubber located on the back side of the fence. The point of these 2 outer screws is to reduce the play or slop while the fixture rides the rail back and forth.

Has anyone else had this issue and if so, how did you fix it?

My only ideas are either to trim the rubber on the back of the fence or remove it all together. Actually I don't even know what purpose that rubber serves.

Thanks in advance,
Ivo

I'd agree on the screws on the right angle fence, i simply light side pressure (toward the fence) as i push the fixture through. Those "rubbers" are actually saw-toothed tracks that are spaced in 32nd's of an inch or so--allow for pretty precise placement of the flip stop or regular stop. I think you could remove them, but i'd not sand them down.

Default Incra positioning jig

I use the jig to position the fence for box joint cutting. To release the top part of the jig turn the T-nut four half turns in order to free the saw tooth mechanism, move it to the new position relative to the ruler and push down gently on the top of the jig to locate the saw tooth mechanism and turn down the clamp until snug but not too tight.
In addition you can zero the jig relative to the ruler by setting the lower part of the jig into position before using the top part and saw tooth mechanism.

Hey Ivan--i stopped in the garage before going to work this morning. It's 2 phillips head screws per section of teeth, which is what i thought. Just take off what you need but don't lose them, you'll want them for other things!!

I would not remove the rack.The nylon screws shound ride on the narrow part of the extrusion just above the rack.I would double check the assembly of the system,paying attention to the height of the fence and the right angle fixture.Do you have the wonder fence on?I could see is both the sub fence and the wonder fence were a little hight how this could cause your issue

Thanks Al,
I have the wonder fence set up and indeed I have a strip of slippery tape under the assembly to make it slide easier and that was just enough to cause the rubbing of the stop block teeth.

Hey Ivo
Can I assume that you removed the tape,thus restoring proper height of the fence alignment and all is well with your incra?
