Overview

For use on virtually any router table with a standard 3/4" miter slot, this jig features a smooth-sliding backer sled and three precision-machined aluminum indexing keys to give you air-tight joints with either 1/4", 3/8" or 1/2" spacing. Works with stock up to 3/4" thick.

  • For compatibility, the near edge of your table's miter track must be between 4-1/2" and 6-1/4" from the center of the bit.
  • Stable MDF platform has low-friction melamine coating for added durability and easy cleanup.
  • ABS plastic backer sled provides ample support, and is also predrilled for a sacrificial face
  • Easy-grip knobs lock platform into miter slot
  • Platform measures 10-3/4" x 12-3/8" x 1/2"
  • Includes all necessary mounting hardware
  • The jig requires a straight router bit to match the size of the indexing key.
  • Up-cut spiral bits deliver the cleanest cuts and prevent blowout.

Great little jig

Hank in ABQ Posted November 25, 2014
Recently got the router table box joint jig. Had to modify my 30 year old table so the jig would fit. But I knew that before I got the jig. After that I made my first box with no problem at all. Nice tight fit. Have now made a recipe box for Mom-in-Law out of 1/4" solid cherry. I sanded down the proud parts at the corners after gluing and it fits great. I'll start a jewelry box later for my daughter.

A word of advice. In order to get the top and bottom of a box to fit exactly I will next make a single box. Then band saw or table saw the top and bottom into 2 pieces. In other words make all 4 walls that will be the top and bottom at once. Of course this will require you to install the slats that make up the floor and ceiling of the box at the same time. So it will be an enclosed box on all 6 sides until you saw it apart.

Great little tool

Would work very well on solid wood. I could not keep the bit from splitting pieces of plywood off on the cut. It is very east to set up. I thought the push fence was on the cheap side. I went back to my table saw and made a box joint jig for cutting the 30 some drawers I had to make. I will use some day for things like keep sake boxes etc.

All I can say is wow...

All I can say is wow , this jig is wonderful. I have been trying to build one for my table saw with out much sucess so I gave up trying. I have a Bosch router table and from the box to first test cut was only about 15 min and did not need to make any adjustments. I will not be pig headed any more if Rockler has a jig I need I will buy it instead. This one saved so much time it was well worth the price.
