New & Exclusive - Setup Up Perfect Fitting Lock Miter Joints In Minutes - Without The Headaches!
This Lock Miter Master Jig Works For Setting Small Bits, From 3/8" to 3/4" Lock Miter Joints
We've all been there; we grab our cup of coffee and head out to the shop with great enthusiasm and vigor, excited by the prospect of making gorgeous Locking Miter joinery. About 1/2 hour later (and $$ in wasted wood) we throw up our hands in frustration only to banish our prized lock miter bits to the back of the bit storage rack. But you thought you had it, right? Only a small adjustment in bit height and it'll be perfect, or should you adjust the fence depth? Make the wrong adjustment and you'll be farther than you were before you started. So what went wrong and why are those bits tricky to setup? For starters, the lock miter profile is one of the few that requires precision in both the X and Y axis. The trick is to find the centerline of your material and match it up with the centerline of the profile, doesn't sound too difficult, I mean we are woodworkers after all, right?
Don't despair, our Lock Miter Master jig is a simple, yet precisely machined, setup-aid for use with lock miter router bits (in table mounted routers only). Unlike other setup jigs or blocks, it's easy to use and open up new locking miter joint possibilities. It requires zero math calculations and virtually no trial and error cuts. With these jigs you can quickly and easily set the proper bit height AND fence position for precise-fitting standard and special case lock miter joints. They attach securely to your router bit with rare earth magnets and are precision milled with engraved reference lines that make it easy to set-up flawless standard lock miter joints as well as a variety of special lock miter joints only possible with the Lock Miter Master.
