Common Questions about the Mini Jig: I already have a drill press, can I purchase the jig only ?? Yes. The jig is easily mounted to the drill press table by 2 bolts that are provided with the jig. If using your own drill press, the spindle must have at least 5" of travel (15-1175 jig only) How much bench space does the Mini Jig need ?? The base plate on this machine is only 16" wide. For operation you should allow 24 in width and your bench should be at least 24" deep. Does the Mini Jig require much maintenance ?? The only maintenance needed is occasional lubrication to the table travel rods. This is the same that you would do with any machine with moving parts. Can I drill into an existing hole ?? Yes. You can drill into existing holes, put in slugs or grips just like the big machines, One quick note. A drill press was never designed to drill anything but straight holes. Because of this, extreme care should be used when drilling large holes. Also remember that the higher the speed you drill, the more chance for vibration. Approximately 450 RPM. On many other jigs like the Mini Jig, the tables become very sloppy in time, will this happen to the Mini Jig too ?? Anytime you have metal parts they will show wear in time. However, the Mini Jig has ajustable table slides for each table allowing the operator to tighten the slides in a matter of minutes. This will allow you to maintain the high level of accuracy that you have come to depend on from your Jayhawk Mini Jig. What if I need service for my pro shop equipment ??
