    Default i-Box Experiences / Tips / Tricks and Questions

    Hi

    With the first delivery of the new Incra i-Boxes in transit to their soon to be happy owners. I started this thread so i-Box users can share their experiences with other users and potential owners.

    We will monitor the thread and add wherever possible.

    Regards

    Grahame

    Default First video review

    Hi all

    Here's the first review that we've seen of the i-Box, worth watching.

    I like that center key look. Correct me if I'm wrong but spiral bits on the router table will probably give one a cleaner cut?

    Default Don't like them on a Router Table

    Hi

    Spiral bits are ok for some applications but as a friend recently found out, on his RT, that if they aren't 100% tight in the collet they work loose and climb upwards, in his case through his finger.

    The enclosed DVD shows some very simple ways of overcoming tear-out.

    Regards

    Grahame....I notice that if you go to the NewWoodworker.com web site (authors of the review you mention) they say that included in the iBox shipping box is the 'material sizing chart' besides the instruction booklet and DVD. In my carton i got from you there was no sizing chart included......is that an oversight and left out by mistake or we don't get it here in Aus??

    Please advise?

    Regards

    MJ,

    Did you purchase from Grahame or from Incra direct?

    Hi Mike

    There have been a few slip ups in the packing area, this is a single sheet. If you put the DVD in a PC and go to the 'extras' it's there as well.

    I'll get some spares sent over ASAP.

    Regards

    Grahame

    Thanks Grahame......looks like the one incra supply is large size paper format, probably laminated(?), which is better for my eyesight Compared to an A4 size that I can only print out!

    Cheers

    Hi

    The one supplied by Incra is A4 (Quarto) on glossy paper. I'll get the master and get some copied to A3 and laminate them. That would be very handy I think.

    Default Metric Stock Sizing Reference

    Hi all;

    I prepare a sheet for both the Centre Keyed and Splined Box Joint sizing. I went a bit further size wise than what Incra did. Note: This is still a DRAFT as I didn't have time to check it as yet, so any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

    It can be downloaded HERE

    If the consensus is that this would be useful, we will have some printed A3 sizes (420mm x 297mm) and laminated.

    We need your feedback.


    Regards

    Grahame

    Nice Grahame!

    Is there anything supposed to be on the second page as it's just blank?

    A3 size would be nice . Thanks for your efforts!! In fact I would be happy to pay for what it is worth as lamination would be the way to go in the w'shop.

    Got the chance to try out the iBox over the weekend......very nice indeed....as advertised. The quality and accuracy of the jig is superb.

    Note make sure your mitre slot is parallel to the blade
    Checked and mine was 5 thou out
    Hadn't checked in ages so got the dial indicator out and got it back to 1 thou accuracy

    Did you only use the table saw or also the router table?

    If so, which method was easier or perhaps more accurate?
