Works as efficiently as the original Joyner off-set jig with 8 holes: the addition of 2 more off-set holes greatly improves design creations. There are now 12 holes around the diameter of the off-set plate making it possible to insert screws just about anywhere to hold the two plates together. *Note: the mandrel in this kit does not have the self-tapping flute/slit in the threads. You can use any of my self-tapping mandrels, however you must be careful when threading them into the off-set plate. If there is any resistance, back it out and start again, do not force it because you will be cross threading the plate.  Here are the Basic Instructions for Joyner Off  

**New addition are the 3 “Buttons”.  These thread into the off-set holes without using the thinner index plate.  Use double-faced tape to adhere the wood to the Button.   If you want to put both the mandrel and the button in in the center hole to clean the wood or create a dome, put the 2 metal spacers on the mandrel, then remove the washers when you move the button to another hole.  I made the 3 piece pendant and earrings and was impressed how great it did the same design on the 2″ and 1 1/4″ and the 7/8″ discs.  Normally you have to fiddle with the setting to get a smaller diameter have the same cuts as a larger one.  These “Buttons” were created by Jerry Sowers in IN.

To make stoppers, openers, can tab lifters or knobs for boxes or unique cabinet knobs, use the bolt in the index plate as shown in the picture.
