I have an older INCRA Ultra System and was contemplating an upgrade to the INCRA 25" LS Super System. Is there a noticeable improvement with the LS?
INCRA had the 25" LS Super System listed on sale for $419. I really like the Wonder Fence and have always wanted to get one. Anyhow, I found an INCRA coupon for 10% off and shipping was something like $35. It brought the grand total to $414. I received an email today from Infinity Cutting Tools with a 10% coupon. I checked out their site and they charged $9.90 for shipping putting the total cost at $387.81. I pulled the plug and upgraded. In ten days or so, I will have a nice INCRA Ultra for sale in the classifieds. ;-)
P.S. I have always been a fan of the INCRA Ultra and used it repeatedly for awesome dovetail joints. I even impressed myself at times when I would crank out the double dovetail joints.
Thanks for that tip. I'm not sure I've been doing that!!Couple of more things--seems like the LS has room for 5 of the templates at a time (maybe not, or might be 4 plus the magnetic rule). On my table saw (TS-LS) I keep the steel rule plus 2 other rules set for different blades (use a 1/8 normally, thin kerf at times, and for segmenting pen blanks I use a 7.25" with 1/16-ish kerf)--so my zeros are always set (I change blades a lot). Do the same on the router tables--if i'm using their templates I can keep both the A and B from a set in place in case I need to go back for more.
I'm done. Thanks for listening. I'm a believer, when I started WWing, I never thought i'd see an Incra Fence in person and couldn't imagine how somebody could spend that much on aluminum. The two on router tables and the one on the table saw are some of the best tools I own, have helped my skill set, and have made a mediocre (cheap) table saw accurate enough to not make it necessary to seek my Holy Grail--i'll still do it, but because I want to not need to!!
