Miter Gauge Sled & Box-Joint Jig

The Family Handyman - - BEST PRO TIPS -

SETUP TIPS

The blade setup de­ter­mines how wide and deep the pins and sock­ets are on your joint. Box joints look best when they are cut to match the thick­ness of your stock.

Make a test joint be­fore cut­ting into the ma­te­rial you plan to use for your box. You'll likely have to fine-tune the po­si­tion of the plate.

Check that the blade is 90 de­grees to the table­top and 90 de­grees to the miter gauge fence.

If the joint is too loose, the pins are too small; in­crease the space be­tween the blade and the key.

If the joint is too tight, make the pins smaller by slid­ing the key closer to the blade.
