Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased with my first dovetail jig. Should have purchased one before now !! Took me a few tries with some scrap 1x12 to fine tune the jig, but in a short time I was producing perfect half dove tail joints. Make sure your lumber is flat as a cupped piece will produce a poor fitting joint. This jig is heavy and well built. anchoring it to my work bench made a big difference,. I would recommend this product to anyone who enjoys woodworking.

I bought it years ago, built a couple drawers with it then, I recall it took quite a while get it tuned and adjusted. While it got the job done I wasn't thrilled with the results. My next big project was drawers for custom kitchen cabinets, my plan had been to use 1/2" Birch ply and half-blind dove tails. I got a rude awakening when I went through the instructions and found out it won't work on anything less than 1/2 inch (I tried anyway with the ply and it did not work). After that it got put away and I hadn't used it until I now. I am once again building drawers for kitchen cabinets, and knowing I couldn't use 1/2 inch ply I sprang for 3/4 maple hardwood that I am planing down to 5/8". After three hours of repeatedly trying to tune/adjust it for half-blind dove tails I'm just going to dado my drawers. I can't get any consistency and am constantly just chasing a passable joint. The stop that is supposed to set the offset between the two pieces is hard to get square and doesn't give a reliable offset for the joint. The clamps are too far away from where the cutting is happing so no matter how much tighten things down stuff still moves. All in all, very frustrating and not worth the time or effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price for a great tool! Online purchase took longer than expected to be shipped to my local HD store, but it arrived in excellent condition. The tool is another great product from Porter-Cable, and works well. The user manual, however, seems poorly written. I learned more about it from articles and videos found on the internet. My only regret is the fact that the normally available military/veteran 10% store discount is NOT available with online orders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Take this product step by step and it will be easy to set up and use. Number one complaint is that it was hard to set up and adjust. I did not find that true but as a I said "Step by step". It worked with just a little adjustment and produced some fine half blind dovetails in multiple types of wood.
