Whatever it is, I didn't break it!

I'm glad you knew what this was...... here it has been sitting in my garage all this time and now I know what to do with it........Gilbear said:That looks like the Incra Jig and fence set-up.
I use one for a lot of general routing where I want to make repeatable cuts but I suppose it's main selling theme is for making dovetails, double-dovetails, sliding dovetails and box joints with a high degree of precision. They actually work very nicely, even though made out of a plastic material. They are a two piece sliding fence adjustment jig with adjustable scales and locking teeth to align the fence in 1/32" increments for making repeat cuts. You've also got their right angle fixture and a shop made mounting board for it.
Yikes Ed, I think that may have been the first one I actually recognized. Your shop must be loaded with stuff.
Thanks for all the time you invest in these - actually very entertaining and educational to boot. YDM.
Yeah Ed, the backing out through the cut has seemed odd to me. I've always been told not to do that, and on other joints or routes it's usualy made things too loose for me - but for some reason it's what they do and what I've done as well with their set-up (one is almost forced to do that on end cuts with their set-up when using dovetail bits) and it works just fine! I suppose it's simply a matter of the mechanics of trying to lift out at the end of the cut without damaging or hitting the right angle fixture.reible said:.... In fact I'd like a few of you to watch and tell me what you think of doing the cut then backing over it..........
