While others sing the praises of this tool, I found it not to work at all like the video showed. The joint did not fit as tight as I have seen other dovetail joints look. And as one other person said, it warped when clamping in the wood. I'll just save my money and get a more professional jig.

It is to wimpy. if you tighten the thumb screws to hold the board it spreads apart and bends the top surface that controls the death of cut, so if you tighten a little different your dove tail changes and doesn't fit good. If you back off on tightness the board moves. very disappointed in it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I own a General Dovetail jig and like it. I have both v1 and v2 of these jigs, as well as a larger, much more expensive dovetail jig. Bottom line: with practice, you can make very nice joints that work well enough that glue is optional. Limitations: This jig is a 2 pass unit (my $$$ jig is a 1 pass for 1/2 blind), and it can only due up to a 6" board before you have to re-position the jig. The jig has a spacer/guide to move the jig for wider stock, so making joints on boards over 6" works fine, you just have to move the jig. Hey, for less than $50, what do you expect? My 12" jig cost 4x this one. Version 2 of this jig adds a bar in place of the 6 screws version 1 had to secure the stock, and a side knob I am not sure what it does, but it is added since V1. The drill bits are bearing types, so the bit does the guiding through the jig, not the router base. You can, however, use a 1/2" guide with a router and a 1/2" bit, so you are not limited to the bearing bits if you have a nice router. I like mine, I kept them even after getting a more expensive jig. The reason? These units make the pins the thickness of the board, all of it. So if you have a 3/4" board, your pins are 3/4" and your tails are 3/4" deep. The more expensive jig only uses 1/2 the thickness for the pins, and the other 1/2 for the tails. So, in theory, this unit makes stronger joints. Who really stresses out their joints to the max on a regular basis? Not many, and not me, but if I ever need a stronger joint, or I want to make a full pin joint, I have the General jigs to do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well Even though I have never even attempted to make a dovetail joint or a box joint before, the first time I used this jig it came out perfect! The joint was so tight that it almost did not need any glue. As you will read in other reviews, the jig does flex some as you tighten the clamps on the board, but this does not seem to make any difference to the joint. I have made several drawers using this jig over the last 2 weeks and they have all come out great. I am very pleased with it & would reccomend it without hesitation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea, but lacking I purchaced this item twice. The first time I had to return it because the (special) router bit for this product blew a bearing and the race tore up the bit. Since you can't just buy a new bit without returning the entire jig, I returned and ordered the second. I put the second one to use and got perhaps 10 cuts out of it before the bit in the new one was toast as well. The screws that hold the wood in place started marring the wood, and I had to tighten them so tight to keep the wood from shifting, that it left a gap in the dovetail joint after assembly. I didn't have the second one much more than a month either. Long story short unless all your going to use it for is decoration, spend the extra money and get a real jig. This product was nothing but a big disappointment to me.
