Assuming finger and box joints are the same for this post, search for Lynn's Jig. Easy to build and very precise.
Has anyone used the Oak Park jigs with a Triton router table? I've both and before I start drilling any holes I'd be interested in other's experiences.These days I have a set of three OakPark spacer jigs, low cost, simple and work well. Previously I used this reversible home made one which also produced good quality box joints. I suppose it depends on the joints you expect, the ease of use and or the money you are prepared to invest.
Thanks Harry ! That's a nice cast table you've got there!I used to have a Triton router table Peter (and was very happy with it) and I see no reason why you can't fit the OakPark spacer fences to it. I fitted them to my cast iron table, here is a link to the thread.

It looks better than it is Peter, in retrospect I should have kept the Triton.Thanks Harry ! That's a nice cast table you've got there!
How come? What did you prefer about the Triton?It looks better than it is Peter, in retrospect I should have kept the Triton.
It worked very well and the biscuit jointer was great. I originally had the first model then changed to the new one with the sliding piece at the front which made it very versatile. I also made a box joint jig for it before Triton produced one. All together it did what it was supposed to do and did it well.How come? What did you prefer about the Triton?
Peter,Incidentally, I've actually got two. One I bought specifically and another I've yet to build a base for, that arrived as part of a job lot of Triton bits that I got off eBay for buttons. It's the older type and came with the fence and guard but no bolts. It also came with an extension table for something. and an odd assortment of square tube. I keep thinking of building a simple base for it and leaving it set up with one of the more commonly used cutters so that I can do quick jobs on it. It's a hangover from a philosophy of keeping tools I've upgraded from set up permanently for something, like the way I've always got a rose bit in an old drill. Just pick it up and use it, instead of swapping cutters/bits.
Does anyone else do this?
I hope all members have taken note, further breaches of terminology will be severely dealt with even if we know what you mean!Please stop calling Box Joints, "Finger Joints".
Finger jointing is done with an edge profiling tool with several slot cutters on an arbor.
Finger jointing is an edge jointing method like a sophisticated version of Tongue and groove, by which multiple tongues and grooves provide even better surface area at the edge for a stronger glue bond.
Put finger joint cutter into a websearch to see what the cutters look like!
And for heavens sake please lets all use common terminology so we all understand what's people are talking about.
