Regards,
GPM59

Hi
I don't have the 40040 jig but do have the original 12" version bought new 20 odd years ago. The manual is in paper form so I would need to scan to pdf but happy to do so if you can't get hold of the correct version

Bob

EDIT:
Elu didn't make their own jigs and many are sold under different brand names so worth trawling looking at pics as you might find it that way.
This is a useful site http://www.grizzly.com/manuals.aspx

No problem Graham, will scan it as soon as I get a chance. I'm a bit busy this weekend so might take me a few days.
I'll need your email address to send to so either pm me with it or drop me a message to bob dot lonsdale51 at btinternet dot com
cheers

Bob

Hi gpm59. Welcome to the forum, it's good to keep up the Essex membership count!

I've got the same jig in the 12" version, badged as DeWalt. Go no manual with mine as it was 2nd hand from ebay. Got no cutter either, and no guide bush. Made a bush from scraps that is 'get-away-able'. Lots of trial and error with different cutters led to a dedicated router left permanently set up for the jig, as the potential setup time (for me, anyway) is hours rather than minutes. If you got the correct cutter and bush (and instructions) maybe setup time may not be so bad for you.

Bob, any chance of a copy of the manual for me too?

Cheers,

Roy

Roy,
Sounds like you had a nightmare sorting the jig out. You must have the patience of a saint, I think I would have launched it out ! Hopefully Bob's manual will help us both out, as we have something in common!!!!
Hope things are going well for you,
Regards,
Graham..

Agree... re using an old, but serviceable router, left set-up to depth.
I committed an old upright Bosch router. I sold the jig, when I bought a Leigh. The router still functions perfectly! Haven't had any complaint from the purchaser of the jig either! :lol:

Welcome to the Forum, and enjoy.
:D

No problem Roy - yet more stuff to clutter up the place? :lol: You should see the amount of "might come in useful" stuff I've got #-o

Is it possible to get a copy ?
I'll sort it out Kenny. Might take me a few days as it's on another hard drive which is packed away.
