Maybe I’m just becoming more of an old fart curmudgeon, but when I see something advertised as “now only $923” I think what’s only about $923? You do have to use coupon code TSC7 to get this price on the 52″ range Incra TS-LS Joinery System with 32″×32″ right side router table, but are systems such as these good values?

I do like the Incra rulers and markers (as seen on TM 10/5/07 and 7/29/08), but this joinery systems seems more than a wee bit expensive, even if it does include the Wonder Fence split router fence, rip fence, support legs, rails, and router plate with inserts.

    Does anybody else find it funny that this is attached to a $700 TS? Seems like misappropriation of funds to me… I’ll take the tricked-out cabinet saw version for less money http://timberlinetools.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=Jet 708663CK&click=168 0

    Very hot!!!!!!! Not really needed for most shops, but this tool can really help in setup for one off pieces. Not good fro production work necessarily. Can really help with joints, and accurate cuts. yeah it should be on a unisaw or similir cabinet saw. but you can’t win them all.

    I would love to have the Incra System on my router table, and I would love a better fence and extended rails on my tablesaw, but I don’t think I would like them together. What happens when you have one set up then you need the other. Even with perfect and fast repeatable adjustments, you still have to change back and forth. I have never seen the appeal of adding a router to a tablesaw unless you are really strapped for space, and if you have the room for this setup, you have room for separate machines.
    That being said, I see no problem with the cost. Think of what you’d pay for a premium fence, an extension table, and the long rails, then add the cost of a router table and fence, and maybe a few jigs to do some of the pattern work the incra can do, and you’ll likely be well over $1000 with maybe less quality.
    Just for reference, the complete incra jig and fence for your router table is available from grizzly for under $200 for the 16″ to $329 for the 25″. http://www.grizzly.com/products/category.aspx?key=230040
    Not bad if you check out the incra site and see all it can do.
    Also take a good look at the miter gauges and miter sled from incra. I want those.
