    IBox owners! Got a question

    I am trying to adjust the miter bar. Closest I can get it is .010. Seems sloppy. Any tricks to get it closer? The white washer does not turn when I tighten the screw. I have to lift it out and turn it, which I have been doing 90 at a time. Doesn't change much. What am I doing wrong?

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    I have one and have mixed results.. Not sure what white washer you are referring to??

    If I'm not mistaken the white washer might be designed to expand the more you tighten the screw. Is the center of the washer countersunk with a taper to accept the screw? If so then I think you only need to snug it down some more to snug up the bar in the slot.

    @Paul - the white 'washers' in the miter bar.

    @Allen - I have tightened them to the point of threatening to bend the allen wrench. No joy.

    Not sure what you mean, Carol. It's been a while since I set mine up, but I had no problems getting the bar to fit my miter slot perfectly. It's a bit late tonight for going back out to the shop, but I'll take a look at the bar - and the instructions - tomorrow morning, and get back to you.

    Is it similar to this from incra?http://www.incra.com/manuals/GlidelockMiterBarAdd.pdf

    Is there a slit in the white disc? If so it says that if it's in the opening of the bar it won't expand properly when the screw is tightened.

    That was helpful, Allen. Thanks. I didn't have the slot in the openings, but I also didn't have discs on both sides of the bar. Didn't know about that download either. What else should I know?

    From the sound of that, you've solved your problem?

    The iBox instructions regarding the bar adjustment aren't as explicit as the reference Allen gave you, but the adjustments are exactly the same, so hopefully, you're in business now.

    The bar adjustment is quite critical to successful joinery, because any play at all in the setup will be seen in the final product.

    No joy!

    Finally got back to the shop for a bit and found my miter bar doesn't support adjustment buttons on both sides of the bar. Nor are there extra adjustment buttons in the packaging. Bar is still too narrow for the slot. That pdf that Allen posted wasn't included either.

    Specific recourse? I bought this several months ago and am just now trying to get up to speed with it. My track record with regard to emailing customer support is pretty dismal. I am still awaiting response on several send years ago!
