This jig simply clamps onto the box joint and guides the router for perfect spline cuts. Medina, MN (PRWEB) December 18, 2014 Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Large Box Spline Jig , a device that allows users to create decorative splines which also provide extra strength in the joint. The Large Box Spline Jig is easily clamped to mitered box joints in order to cut slots for a wide variety of decorative splines with a handheld router. This is particularly useful for large boxes that are difficult to handle on a router table. Once the jig is clamped to the corner of the box, the jig faces support the base of the router as it is pushed to cut the spline slots. The user can then add their choice of splines, which are very decorative and elevate the design of the box into something extraordinary.

While the number of variants has been falling with each generation of mobile standard, it’s hoped there will be just one single version of 5G used around the world. “5G will require major efforts in terms of research. Governments need to support this research effort financially. We also need a global commitment to avoid competing standards, so that we have one global 5G.
