Best box joint jig out there
This is by far the best box joint system you will ever find. Easy setup by just following the instructions. Even fine tuning is quick and simple. Works well with small contractor size saws. A great addition to my shop.
Definitely worth the money!!!!!!!
The set up & assembly instructions were easy to follow. The accompanying DVD is outstanding!!!!!!!! I made a couple of box joint jigs but they don't come close to comparing with the ease of use and accuracy of the Incra Ibox. My fist trial joints turned out perfect the first go!!
Using the included DVD and printed instructions, it was easy to set up and use. First trial yielded usable joints but succeeding uses yielded nearly perfect joints. I had dedicated jigs for five different sizes of box joints and they are now drawing dust!
Gives perfect joints every time
I have tried a few box joint solutions, but the iBox is best for consistent results. You have to dedicate some time to getting your head around its use and adjustments, but success comes quickly. The DVD is a real asset and should be a requirement for any major tool nowadays. My first project was a set of drawers from 1 x 12 stock. They were flawless, and a lot faster than using my dovetailed. These were done on the tablesaw, because I am still perfecting my router process.
wood working fanatic
i have done alot of woodworking building boxes, shelves, bookcases etc. with all the jigs i have used this tops them all , i had no problem putting it together, and was super easy to use and understand
Follow Directions in set up!
Most folks don't have a DVD player in the workshop so set up and adjusting rely on the printed set up instructions which are a bit spotty, especially after initial set up. Take notes from the DVD to use the jig after the initial set up and for the more advanced uses.
It works and worth the expense
I use this primarily to cut fingers for bee hive bodies and decorative boxes. This is hands down easy to use once you learn how to use it. As other reviewers state - it's all in the CD and printed user's manual. I've used this with a wide range of stock, and by far the best for larger items - but just as easy with small parts. Very repeatable - you can cut a batch of panels today, and 3 weeks from now cut some more and the pieces are still interchangeable. Very sturdy all around, including the key that holds the finger while cutting. The very first setup I used (following the instructions) worked like a charm - very snug joints, but no pounding. Well worth the cost if you do any amount of finger joinery with a table saw or router.
Finally one that WORKS
As in the other five star review, it takes a little time to set up - the fingers were very tightly closed on the unit I got, so it took a few trys before I got the feel of the fit and spacing between the fingers. You need to watch the entire CD - especially to understand the clever way you can dial in accurate (.001) , partial width fingers. Does a great job holding long boards (15 x 32 x 1/2 plywood!) Once set up, it is an absolute joy to use. It will cut ANY width finger joint from 1/8" to 7/8" wide, and do it accurately on the first try after ONE calibration cut to set the finger width. One of the best tools ever.
Well worth the money - really easy to us
Once set up it is a dream - Need the enclosed CD to help with set up . Good addition to my workshop
