The new Rockler Router Table Box Joint Jig provides smooth workpiece motion and precise spacing for perfect box joints.
MEDINA, Minn. (PRWEB) May 08, 2018
Rockler Woodworking and Hardware’s newly updated Router Table Box Joint Jig makes it easier than ever to craft clean, tight-fitting finger joints for small to medium-size decorative boxes.
The updated jig features a backer sled that’s been redesigned to provide smoother workpiece motion and greater workpiece control.
The sled now incorporates the indexing key for positioning the workpiece during each cut, and the jig comes with three interchangeable brass indexing keys – for 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" box joints. The indexing key mounts to the sled with machine screws, so swapping keys is easy, and there are storage slots on the sled for the two keys not being used. The redesigned sled also is larger, with dedicated spots for clamping the workpiece, and it’s made from reinforced nylon for increased strength and durability. A replaceable MDF sacrificial fence for mounting to the backer sled is included.
“Using an up-cut spiral bit in a table-mounted router is the best way to cut clean, crisp box joints – without the pointy ‘ears’ left by the angled tips of a saw blade,” said Steve Krohmer, Rockler’s vice president for product development. “The new Rockler Router Table Box Joint Jig provides smooth workpiece motion and precise spacing for perfect box joints.”
The jig has an MDF base with a smooth melamine surface and precision-machined slots that keep the sled from traveling too far into the bit. Expandable miter bars secure the jig in router tables with a standard 3/4" x 3/8" miter slot, and the knobs for tightening the miter bars have been upgraded to Easy-to-Grip Five-Star Knobs with smooth, rounded contours and proprietary rubber overmolds that eliminate sharp edges.
The updated jig is part of an array of Rockler products designed to make box making easier and improve results, including spiral up-cut router bits (63008, 38238, 62984); the Rockler 1" x 15" Band Clamp with integrated ratcheting handle (58432); Box Joint Cauls (42784) for easy clamping during glue-up; and the dedicated Band Clamp Accessory Kit (56025).
