Before I get to the FINAL VERSION of the DJ-1 Offset Kit, you should know that the little AS-24v2 run is now sold out.
Today we opened up pre-orders for the DSS-6 Double Square. This too will be limited to about 300 units. This is my square of choice when I get time to play. I am guessing they will all be gone in a week or so.
Thanks to all for the suggestions in making the DJ-1 Offset Kit the best it can be. Couple of points regarding how it works…
The DJ-1 needs a 3/32″ hex key to remove the orange jaws so the Universal Jaws can be attached. Because this cannot be changed, we added a pocket to the house the hex wrench in the offset kit. All of the tightening screws use the same wrench. No room for cam locks, or knobs.
Here is the finished kit, it attaches with one screw;
The micro-adjuster is a sensitive little bugger-it moves the bushing center-line .100″ per rev. The indicated grads are .010″ splits with .005″ indicators in between. Now you can have one last say on this design…
Look at either image where the DJ-1 is on the maple board. Notice the location of the holes. Let’s say you want to drill holes even closer to the edge than in the image. Which direction (either clockwise or counterclockwise) would you expect to rotate the blue adjuster (looking at the end of the adjuster) to move the bushings closer to the edge?
The young whippersnapper here disagrees with your Tool Potentate so we are going to let you, the DSN decide. Don’t screw this up!
