Answer: 
The bits supplied with this jig are 1/2" and will not fit your router. Your options are to find identical bits in 1/4", see if there is a 1/2" collet available for your router, or get a router which will accept 1/2" bits and the 3/4" and 5/8" template guides.

Answer: 
Steven, this jig will work with your Craftsman if your router has a 1/2" collet and will accept the
3/4" and 5/8" guide bushings. If necessary, you can purchase a universal router baseplate which will accept Porter-Cable's bushings, or use the ones that come with the kit.

I'd like to buy this jig, but it is only available on line. Normally I get a 10% military discount in Home Depot store. Can I get the same discount on-line? if so how?

12 in. Dovetail Jig is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great jig It is a great jig! It's true it may take a bit of practice to get comfortable with it. I also found that after having read the directions it was helpful to go online and watch how it's done as well. It just made it all come together for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Porter-Cable Dovetail Jig It took Home Depot about three weeks to get this item shipped to its store. If I'd ordered from Amazon, it would have been here in a couple of days and $10.00 cheaper. I'll do more looking next time. The dovetail jig is well made and sturdy....it should last a long time. The step-by-step instructions were clear and concise. The only times I got into real trouble were the times I failed to complete a step or screwed up elsewhere. After a little practice, I was able to make darned good half-blind dovetails, and pretty good through dovetails. There are several You-Tube segments which show you how it's done. Take the time to watch them...they really helped to put the entire operation into perspective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great starter dovetail jig. Although I have been a woodworker for 20 years, I had never tried my hand a dovetailing. It always looked difficult at best. Although it did take me several tries to get the tight quality joint I was looking for, this jig was actually pretty easy to setup and use. After using it, I decided to get a separate router just for dovetailing. Since setting the height of the bit was the time consuming part, I don't want to have to do that every time I set it up. The rest was just following the instructions. In the end the joints looked great (even thought they are seldom seen). I know their are nicer dovetailing jigs out there, but this one will take care of my needs for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Being unfamiliar with this type of jig, I had to read the instructions several times, but after that, it works great. I am pleased with the results and the end product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with this tool Looked for a product for a long time that would take me over the "I want this tool" - to the "I need this tool" - bump - I wanted to be able to dove tail, at a level that would allow me to make 60 or 70 drawes, at a time, when needed . . . . This not only does the job very well and consistently . . . . It has taken the "hum drum" glued and dowled drawer (of the past) to this dove tailed drawer that I refuse to paint - and will only clear coat . . . . . "A real work of art" . . . . . . . . . I studied this purchase for a long time . . . and am very pleased . . . . . . note I hate to read directions - found "how to videos" all over the web . . . . . . Home Depot - My Toy Store - Need I say more?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4212 Dovetail jig overall pretty pleased with quality. better quality than similiar craftsman model that uses some sort of plastic/polycarbonate for their templates. porter cable uses aluminum. that's what really sold me. they do have some instructional videos available on the internet that help detail the different uses. item was a little more expensive at home depot than other places, but i had a gift card that i had to use up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have to practice and learn how to use. The included router guides did not fit my craftsman or Dewalt routers. Ended up getting a porter cable router.
