Chris,

Actually, I like the jig a lot and I have been able to get good joints. I find it fast and easy to use except for those issues, and from my vantage point they are issues. One would think that for an entry price of about $800.00 you'd get better precision and not have things bump and grind each other, no?

As for the mounting bar, how can it be self aligning if it has play in it? The right side of the jig is self aligning because after you adjust the in & out with the wheel the position is maintained. The same can't be said for the left side. As the bar travels up it's moving and thus you can't be assured of proper alignment on that side.:smad:
