    Incra LS positioner or DRO for joinery

    DRO arrived and has been fitted to the fence. As one can see in the video there is not too much hassle to dial it in for a cut. I'm thinking that a couple of hundredths give or take is within toleranse. I have not tested the accuracy of the DRO itself, but given that is is fairly accurate I...

    Incra LS positioner or DRO for joinery

    My thoughts exactly. That's why I think relative accuracy is key. The pins need to be accurate to the tails in the moment you cut them, but as you say - wood moves. Hopefully that alleviates the call for machinist grade accuracy and repeat ability.

    Incra LS positioner or DRO for joinery

    Hi, I'm on the fence (pun intended) on wether to get an Incra fence system or to upgrade my home made self designed fence. The home made one has micro adjust via the knob on the left and can easily be adjusted to 0.1mm with the dial indikator. To knob to the right locks the position. 4040...
