Incra Metric Systems

 Goes METRIC !!!!

Yes!!! That's right after a little dabbling with METRIC Rules etc., and after a lot of persuasion, Incra have released FULL METRIC versions of their two flagship products, the LS 17 and the LS 32 Positioner Systems.  Now, fantastic joinery like this can be yours without having to 'do the time warp again' and cross between METRIC and Imperial dimensions.

This conversion hasn't been a simple matter of adding new scales and templates, it has necessitated the replacement of every dimensioning component; leadscrew, micro-adjust, stainless steel main scale, sawtooth racks and of course scales and templates.  Even the Master Reference Guide has been re-written and now includes 26 METRIC specific joints.  The METRIC versions feature a precision 1.00mm pitch leadscrew, 1.00mm pitch sawtooth racks and a micro adjust knob with audible 'clicks' at 1/20th mm intervals, it is also possible to set at mid points giving you 1/40th mm accuracy (1/1000th inch)

Whiteside have worked with Incra to produce a brand new 6 piece, 1/2" shank, router bit set, comprising of the same specification bits that were used to design the METRIC templates.

Existing Incra LS32 & 32 users will be happy to know that conversion Kits are available.

  The LS 25 range will not be available in METRIC
 

Why a XL System?  The majority of table saws sold in Australasia are larger than those commonly found in the US market,  Therefore to ensure that your Incra LS Table Saw fits your machine we always suggest the larger  mount panel and a longer fence supplied with the XL systems.  The longer fence allows for more accurate, safer and comfortable use.  The standard fence will suffice for tablesaws with a width of 720mm or less.

 

What's the difference between the TS-LS32 & 52 systems?  The actual positioning range remains constant 32” or 820mm whilst the additional 20” or 500mm capacity is achieved by repositioning the fence componentry along the longer 92” or 2336mm rails supplied.  NOTE: These longer rails attract a freight surcharge which will be passed on to the purchaser..     

 

By way of explanation; we have maintained the Imperial sizes in these descriptions where the component size is identical with the Imperial version.  Where a components functionality has changed we have clearly identified the METRIC dimensions.
