Hi all,For Brich
Just added some more snapshots for Birch
The stock in the jig is 3/4" wide MDF ..
Manual. I got a copy on the way Brich from a nice guy on Ebay
"It turns out I have to open the box to add another
Item. If you want a copy of the manual I will copy
it and mail it off to you for $5. to cover postage,copy and envelop cost.
Let me know today or it will be gone. My e mail is "
The only thing bad about this jig is/was the clamping system,,but I took care of that error,, I drilled holes in the clamp bolt threaded rods and put in some cotter pins so the clamp would not fall off and made a new push block out some MDF stock, now when I back off the clamp it comes back and the push block now puts presser on the stock in the right place.. without caming out one way or the other ..
By the way the brass guide I asked about didn't need because I had a 1 1/2" O.D. brass guide that worked out just right for this jig..
The one that comes with the jig is a funky steel one with two holes in it to hold it in place , so it worked for the best in the long run.
Last Thursday, I was also given one of these Craftsman M & T jigs. The price is right -- free. It is missing the guide however.
Bob, you mentioned using a 1 1/2" O.D. brass guide. I have some brass guides for my Porter Cable router, but not that large. It seems like the brass guide you show in one of the pictures is smaller than 1 1/2" so I thought I'd double check. Can something other than 1 1/2" be used?
