Always fun to try things out; usually end up learning new things as well.

We don't get a lot of posting here, but what we do get is very high quality, please share any tips or cool stuff you end up doing with your saw.

Best,
Rutager

You are a super person for spending the the time and effort to get this info to all of us. I am new to the Jointmaker and just got it adjusted and tuned up and am now getting some great cuts.

I will have to wait till Dec. to enjoy the fence.

I live in northern Colorado on the front range as they call it and we are getting into our perfect spring weather so now heat needed in my shop.

Again Thanks Thanks Thanks

If I can be of help someday let me know.

Rick

Well, couldn't find any reason it won't work! I mounted my old left side rails and slides and then mounted the fence. The old table sits at the same height as the new version, although the linear bearings give the table about an inch more travel-nothing to do with the fence, just how the two systems are arraigned.

I tried cuts at both 90 and 45 degrees with no blade interference.

Took a couple pictures, but they didn't seem to post correctly.

Rick,

I take it your fence hasn't arrived yet? If you want, I could reinstall my old slides, tables and try and mount the fence and determine what the promblem(s) might be. Let me know, I could do it in the next day or two, just a couple screws and bolts.

No fence, they are planning delivery in Dec. 2017. It looks like they are on my work schedule. If you wish to do that it would be much appreciated for me and ma bee for others on this forum. As you know the upgrade kits are not available and they have no plans to produce them again.

Only do this if its quick and easy with minimum adjustments.

Many thanks for the info. I ordered a fence and thinking I can make it work. I have access to machining equipment so I could just make new plates if necessary but it sounds like i may be able to just modify the old plates.

I am also looking into fabricating new custom slides using “openbuild” technology just for the fun of it.

I did call Bridge city Tools and ask the question but the response was just "will not work” they did-not have an interest to talk about it.

I see on the precision fence page it says only works on the V2 version. I have a precision fence on a first version, but it has the upgraded rails and linear bearings. I dug out my old tables and slides and the fence mounting slots are in the same location on the old table and new version. My only thought might be that the mounting bolts are thicker than the table and might hit the front plate when pushed forward.

I would suggest calling Bridge City and asking why. If it is bolt interference, I would think that grinding the bolt heads flatter or spacing the tables higher might do the trick.

If someone has the new fence and has looked at this, please comment and if possible send some pictures of how it mounts to the updated Jointmaker.

I used the instructions to assemble and calibrate the fence and is working great. I haven't assembled the protractor yet,as I have no need to it right now. I see where there are instructions for mounting on a table saw sled. does that mean it can be used on a table saw too?

One thing I will mention is that the little sliding clamp that goes on the fence, has a little pad on the clamping screw. the pad is attached with a lefthand thread to the screw and has a recess near the end to allow the pad to spin. This is a clever idea,but unfortunately the pad wants to unscrew and fall off when the clamp is released. So I clamped it in my vise and used a center punch to put a dimple in the socket on two sides so that it can't unscrew.

I fooled around with this for a day,reading the forum and re-reading the forum and watching the video. I was always an inch off. Finally I figured out it was the outside of the blue stop on both sides of the saw that should be read. And once calibrated on both blue stops, not to fast track the blue stop otherwise it has to be recalibrated. If you want to move from an inch to seven inches it takes a lot of screwing to move the blue stop all that way.
The way I found to set the black stop accurately was to cut a spacer the length you want to set the black stop using the blue stop, then use that to set the black stop. The scale can't be used unless you do some fancy calculations.

I just sent you a quick email with a PDF of the Precision Fence instructions. That's really strange that the package did not include one. There's always a first for everything!

Let us know how else we can help you. Have a great rest of your day!

Looks like it belongs in a tool and die shop instead of a woodshop. To my dismay I found no instructions to assembly this magnificent piece of tooling. I consider myself an above average woodworker, but only an average machinist and mechanic, and prefer to have some guidance to assemble this precision piece. The instruction for the JMP-2 were excellent, if I learned to be more observant of the pictures. I assembled and reassembled it several times before using up all the parts.

So my question is: is there a pdf file I could download the instruction? As good as videos are they aren't the same as having instructions laying on the work bench where the parts are.

And if you are affected by this, contact us directly for replacements, no need to file anything, those levers are not inexpensive.
