The 2 knobs hold the body of the DJ-1 more securely. With just one contact point on one arm, there was more of a chance that there would be movement of the body on the arms while drilling.

Thanks for the quick repsonse and that makes sense.

Another question, on the back of each jaw there are little pins that line up with the body for placement. On the body, there are 4 extra holes on each side. What are those for?

Also, for maintence what should be lubricated and how should it be done? Can the Boeshield be used on it?

Same change on CS-2?

Since the CS-2 is very similar to the DJ-1 on how it works, was this change added to the CS-2 as well?

Side note, Will there be a secound run on this tool? This is one tool I can't stop thinking about.

The second knob is not necessary on the CS-2 because of the inherent nature of how it is used. The CS-2 does not get as much force applied to it like when you use the DJ-1.
We will do another run of the CS-2. We do have ample interest in it. We will keep you posted.

The extra holes on the DJ-1 jaws are for future ideas that we have not thought of yet! They are centered with the bushings and it seemed like a good to have in place in case something cool came to mind later. Let us know if you use them in any capacity!

Blowing out the DJ-1 with compressed air is probably the best thing to do. The smallest bit of oil, (Boeshield is great) can be applied the the holes on the bottom of the DJ-1 body by the logo.

Does it make much difference? I have one of the first run.

The only DJ-1 Drilling Jigs with one knob are our prototypes. No units were shipped with just one knob. You should be all set.

Understood. I moved right around the time it shipped and am just getting my shop together.

I see that on the CS-2 webpage that it will be in stock soon. I take it you are not taking pre-orders?

Any idea on time frame when this will be for sale?
