I saw the Jointech Smart Miter (JSM-48) at our wood show here in
Detroit and was quite impressed. There are several very well thought
out ideas incorporated in this jig. The one that is REALLY intriging
is the concept it has in keeping the edge of the miter fence exactly at
the blade cutting edge no matter what angle the jig is set for. I
understand that this is controlled by the arc and not the connection at
the hinge point. The presentation made a very good impression about
how repeatable and accurate the jig is.
However, I have been hearing mixed reviews from owners. Are any of you
owners of this jig? Can you give me your impressions of how you like
How well does the unique method of keeping the right miter edge at the
cutting edge of the saw work over time?
What is your experience with the Jointech people?
The base price I find is $259. Is that the going rate everywhere?
