I found the jig difficult to set up and align. I was not satisfied with the half dovetails it produced so ended up using through dovetails. You have to be very careful not to over tighten the clamps that hold the work pieces on the jig as it will bend and distort the jig because it is made of aluminum. After 4 joints, the dust shield on one of the router bit bearings fell off exposing the ball bearings.

It was hard to match depth and get flush joints with good alignment. I was using cedar which isn't the best wood for fine woodworking. I finally decided to give up and returned the jig. A more experienced wood worker using different wood may have had more luck.

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

When you tighten the screws to hold the wood the jig bends. The wood moves around in the jig when routing the pins. If there's a trick to using this general tools won't let you know. I sent them an email and no one got back to me.
