Guys, I just caught the segment on the desk set and I saw the box joint fixture. That is a neat thing I will definately build because making box joints on the table saw is a drag. I hate loading up the dado set unless its a big job.

I understand the concept and procedure well, but I need to know how you establish/set up for the space between the bit and the slot guide when you initially clamp the fixture to the router table.

Hi Paul
"making box joints on the router table " The Jig(s) ,It's one of the 1st items I got from OakPark and one of the best items you can put your money into.
Do get all 3 of them ,you will be glad you did plus the brass set up bars.
With jigs you can be cutting box joints in about 2 mins. setup time or less.

Here's some links to OakPark

Paul, with the Oak-Park router table and their box joint jigs, both have holes in them. These holes locate the jig on the table. You then use holes to bolt it to the table, and you are ready to make joints. All three jigs have location holes. It is even easy for me to set up. :D
