Glad you posted. I enjoy seeing different ways of doing things.....Probably shouldn't have posted but I was pleased that I got such a nice joint for my first test cut in so many years. I showed my wife but she just rolled her eyes. I figured only other woodworkers would get it.
Mike, If you want to come over and try my iBox or bring yours over and we can see what is wrong. I have mine setup on my router table with a 1/4 straight bit, hopefully your setup matches. If you want just setup a time on Sunday afternoon - an hour should be sufficientYeah, my iBox is not working well at all, but the problem is me, not the jig. Maybe this weekend I'll take another run at it. The Router Boss looks like a great tool.
Phil, I think I'm available. What time? Thanks for the offer! I really do want to be able to use this one.Mike, If you want to come over and try my iBox or bring yours over and we can see what is wrong.

What I didn't find out is that Phil is a consummate gentleman and an amazing woodworker. I already knew that. What I did find out is that I was measuring the "KISS" part from the wrong spot. (I think that's what the problem was.) Beyond that, Phil showed me how to measure the settings with calipers instead of using the manufacturer's recommendation, which makes a lot of sense. His method takes the guess work out of the setup. On top of that, I was using a 1/2" router bit that was not working well. He put in a 3/8" bit, and now everything seems to be working as it should.Let us know what you found out from Phil about your i-Box.
