This jig makes pos­si­ble a pre­cise-fit box in less than 15 min­utes (in­clud­ing setup). To use it, first se­cure the jig over the bit and regis­tered in the miter slot. Then, po­si­tion the spacer bar—choose from 1⁄4", 3⁄8", and 1⁄2"—the same dis­tance from the bit as the bar it­self, and lock the jig in place. Hold the work­pieces against the sled and stepand-re­peat rout to a com­pleted box joint. You can use straight bits with this jig, but we get best re­sults us­ing an up­cut spi­ral bit.
