INCRA - Positioner LS17 Wonder Fence Super System - 17in 430mm - MetricINC_M-LS17WFSYS
INCRA - Positioner LS17 Wonder Fence Super System - 17in 430mm - Metric - this Precision Fence Positioner system is the ultimate and includes the leading split fence design, the Wonder Fence, for serious joinery and woodworking fans.
The world's most versatile and accurate movable fence for your router table, drill press, or band saw, gets even more useful in this system which is designed to meet the needs of the most serious woodworker yet easy enough for even a beginner to use.
The INCRA LS Super System has all of the precision and versatility of INCRA's other tools, plus a host of new features and design details that set it apart from anything else.
Lead Screw (LS) Technology
The LS stands for Lead Screw. INCRA's patented Lead Screw technology makes this unit the leader in precision positioners for woodworking.
The LS positioner's accuracy is +/- 0.05mm - the lead screw's 1mm increments across its entire range, so it's essentially perfect even without the built-in micro adjust. The large micro-adjust knob turns the lead screw against the mating threads, allowing the fence to be shifted in 1/20mm steps to tweak the width of a groove or zero the fence against a router bit.
The fence used for the Standard Systems is the Pro-II 28" fence, which features a surface that's machined flat in a milling machine and a T-slot for adding fixtures or adding the INCRA Wonder Fence in the future. The Pro-II fence directly accepts the Shop Stop or INCRA Stop, and there's also a telescoping extender bar for stopping grooves being cut into longer boards.
INCRA Wonder Fence
The Wonder Fence slides into the front T-slot of the Pro-II joinery fence, and it adds adjustability to accept any size router bit and accommodates zero-clearance subfences. The Wonder Fence also adds the ability to very precisely offset the infeed and outfeed fence halves for edge jointing rough timber or setting up for complex moulding jobs like reversible glue joints.
The LS Super Systems are available with either 17" or 430mm travel LS units to provide their positioning accuracy. INCRA's patented lead screw positioning mechanism allows any woodworker to quickly set the fence within 1/1,000" (0.025mm) of any desired position. In woodworking terms, that's accurate enough to split the line from a sharp pencil into 25 equal parts! And because an INCRA positioner is mechanical in nature, every fence setup is easily repeatable with zero error, hours or weeks later.
INCRA Master Reference Guide & Template Library. Provides straightforward instructions and 51 joinery templates (25 templates in the metric version) to slide into the positioner to provide a visual reference for each joint pattern. Those templates can produce a mind-boggling variety of joints - 11 box joint patterns and 29 dovetail patterns are included (or 9 metric box joints and 16 metric dovetails), and each one of the dovetail patterns can be cut half blind, through, sliding, or corner post.
INCRA Jumbo Right Angle Fixture & INCRA Shop Stop
INCRA's largest Right Angle Fixture is included to keep workpieces square to the fence and square to the table for joinery operations. Instead of the basic stop block of typical router fences, the included INCRA Shop Stop is based on patented incremental positioning racks to give you unparalleled accuracy and repeatability when limiting a board's travel across the router bit, or setting the endpoints of stopped grooves for drawer and box bottoms.
INCRA LS Instructional DVD (82 Minutes) The LS systems are topped off with a 1hr, 22min instructional DVD - this great disc is loaded with information - how to take advantage of the optional Wonder Fence's advanced features, cut perfect fitting rabbets and dadoes, and it has full-length instructions for box joints and the four most common styles of dovetail joints.
Available in Metric Editions 430mm (17") and 635mm (25").
