Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A bargain at any price!! This tool is absolutely fantastic. It comes with every thing you need (the router bits) and is easy to set up. Detailed directions are easy to follow and understand. I made absolutely PERFECT dovetails the very first time. The result is absolute confidence in the quality of your work. This tool will remain in my collection for many, many, years. My buddy is trying to think of something to make just so that he can use it! April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money It took me bout 15 mins to get set up. After about 30 mins of messing around with it I got it dialed in. I made templates to help with setup for next time, something I would recommend. I plan on using all the jigs it came with in the next month. The directions aren't the best, but there are plenty of videos all over the internet on setup tips and tricks. You cant beat the quality for the price. I even know a handful of cabinet makers that rely heavily on this setup. Doesn't come with the bits needed to do the box joint, but I had one and that was the first one I used January 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Simpler than Expected; Get Router Adapter Was a bit leery about getting this due to $$ and it sounded complicated. After getting it, I was relieved to find it wasn't that bad. I learned on some scrap that the depth setting on the side is KEY. You need to adjust it to match the wood. It's not "set once and leave it". This isn't mentioned in the book in the operating section. Glad I got this kit because it included all the jig patterns I needed (small dove tails and large). I haven't yet needed more jig patterns. I get most tools from Home Depot including my Bosch 1617 router. That router needs adapters to work with this jig: kit RA1125 and RA1126. At the time and as of right now, HomeDepot doesn't sell them. I do wish the angles of the bits were a bit more dramatic to give the dovetails more emphasis, but they are just corners in the drawers anyway. When making the jig patterns, they should have broken the edges of the machined parts. Edges of the jigs are sharp. Due to the odd size and shapes, I have found it takes a bit of space to store this. But that's no big deal. Have used this for drawers on a desk and a drawer cabinet. I would get it again. September 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Performs as expected Performed excelent, all parts were easily attached. The directions were easy to follow. September 25, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works well with after a lot of practice The instructions are clear. Set-up is straight forward. Still, I had trouble getting a good join on my practice pieces. Ran out of scraps and started on the project wood. Then everything fell together. This is a very good jig for the price. Exactly what I was looking for. My trouble was more to do with the operator than with the jig itself. May 19, 2013
