UPDATE. Miter Jack Kits: Metal Bits Now Available

Nick at Lake Erie is taking pre-orders for another small run of wooden bits. We've got a handful of the metal bits left from the first run. You can order the metal bits from us anytime (see our store page), but to get the wooden screw and threaded nut block, you'll need to pre-order through Lake Erie. More info here.

We've sold out of the La Forge Royale Miter Jack kits, but there's a silver lining. We made a double run of the metal bits which we're offering for sale. All you'll have to make is the wooden screw, and tap the nut block. The inexpensive wood threading kits will work (if you have a lot of patience) but we like the Beall products. The 1-1/4" is the one to get. If you don't want to bother with the threading, we recommend you contact Nick at Lake Erie Toolworks, who makes the best quality wood threads in the world.

The contents of the Miter Jack Kit Metal Bits are pictured above (minus the wood screw and nut block of course.) All the metal bit are manufactured in the USA by us. You'll also get a pouch with all the various screws needed to assemble the jack.

SOLD OUT: We have just 3 kits left, they do not include the various small wood screws and the groove pin (see below). Price is $30 plus shipping. If you want one just shoot us an email and we'll invoice you. Domestic shipping will be assumed unless otherwise noted.
