Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dave 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.

The General EZPro Aluminum Dovetail jig is an inexpensive yet extremely useful tool. Woodworkers who are looking for an easy and reliable way to create half or full dovetail joins should look no further than the heavy duty General Dovetail jig. The EZPro is made of heavy aluminum and requires the use of a router. The dovetail jig can be used alone with a router or with a router table. The General EZPro comes with an easy to understand manual and with a dovetail rounter bit. The jig accommodates from 1/2 inch up to 1 inch thick stock.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by slick Worked for me
I've been a carpenter my whole life. I have never needed a dovetail jig. I bought this knowing it was an entry level jig. I've used it to make box joints for bee hives. It works fine for that. I surely wouldn't use it to make fine furniture or cabinets though.

Great tool, just getting into woodworking and used it to build some custom drawers. Easy to use and made very short work of the project once I got the hang of it.

This is a great little jig for small projects. Not for heavy use. Excellent value. Easy to use. Although it is capable of doing wide boards, seems to work best with narrow stock. I'm very satisfied.

Works as advertised, Easy learning curve. Needs extra bit for full box joints. Comes with bit for half blind joints. Customer of HD for many years. Good products and prices.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by baran just OK
The threads on the hold down screws are very loose they were not machined properly I know they will will eventually strip out. The flimsy bars that hold the wood in place are very thin. Save yourself a few bucks and buy the older version there is very little difference between the two. It would be nice if they specified the exact finger details and placed a centering mark on the middle fingers so you could end up with half pins on both ends. You get what you pay for if all you want is to make a few boxes this is OK but it is not a quality jig.

After fighting a dovetail jig from another company, I had almost given up. With this one, I have already made half and full dovetails and even joined some boards together. Learning curve was small because of the well written documentation.
