Default Jessem Mite R Slide mounted to INCRA LS Positioner

I know there have been some who have been dissatisfied with the Incra Right Angle fixture for doing dovetails and have found a way to mount the Jessem Mite R Slide to the Incra fence/LS Positioner. I remember seeing a wood block attachment but also a metal version to mount the two together. Wondered if anyone accomplished this and how it worked out. I found a good deal on a Miter R Slide and since I already have the Incra LS Positioner/Fence I thought I'd upgrade to a really good setup.

Ummm, never have had any trouble with the Incra RAF. You do need to get familiar with it in regard to how tight to set screws that adjust the way the fixture rides on the fence.

However, I would like to hear about the problems that others have had with the fixture. I'm always open to something better, so you have my attention.

I can't say I'm unhappy with the RAF but it really isn't a replacement for a miter gauge. In fact, even Incra says that. I'm able to use it and get consistent results but I am very wary of it flexing and treat it more like a piece of wood I'm sliding against the fence.

I would prefer to have a solid slider that doesn't use nylon screws to hold it tight to the fence. MRS might just do that. Dang, I seem to keep reaching for my wallet...

So, Bill, what did you have to do to mount the Mite-R-Slide? Pix?

By the way, does anyone else find JessEm's product naming a bit hokey? Mite-R-Slide vs MiterSlide, Mast-R-Lift Vs MasterLift

Hey Bill.... it is very doable...and works exceptionally well

I did mine a few years back when I built my router table...

here is the thread I did on the table build: http://www.routerforums.com/table-mo...ble-setup.html

here is the section about putting on the slider: http://www.routerforums.com/table-mo...tml#post155085

Thanks for the link .... really interesting. Unfortunately the pics/thumbnails didn't appear on page 11 but all the others do. My table will look somewhat similar to yours with the Incra Clean Sweep and rings plus the Incra Positioner. I mounted my Rockler table between two MFT 1080 tables as I'm room challenged. So far it's looking like a nice setup.

In 6 years, I had never seen this series of photos on your RAF mod.

No wonder, they are buried inside another thread. I think it deserves its own thread. It was a stroke of genius when you did it and it looks awesome.

Timbertailer, i 've got to agree. I've never seen this thread and it really should be on its' own. The more I read it the more ideas come up.

Hey Bill..

Look for post #107 in the thread, There you will see how I mounted the slider to an LS17.

I hadn't been to the thread in quite a while and it does take some time now for the pics to load. Especially when there are quite a few pics on a given page.

This is the great thing about doing your own router table setup. You work with whatcha got, and make the best of it.

Thank you Brad.... its always a good feeling when the work you put into a project is appreciated by others. I had alot of input from fellow members during the build and used other builds as inspiration and a data base for what I could and couldn't get away with. The idea was to build a RT ONCE and make it so that it would outlast me. I wanted all the bells and whistles just cuz!!!!!! The bells and whistle haters seem to have a hard time with that concept *L*
The table has aged well, the hardware has held up flawlessly and she' done everything I've asked of it. About the only thing I would have changed would be to eliminate the Wixey digital readout. I just don't use it.
