Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BearsFan51 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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gary 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.

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.

Finally something made of metal. Haven't got to use it yet but looks better than anything else I've seen, it has adjustments to make up for wear on anything else.

Good product and easy to use. There are some quirks for adjustments that are easily worked out with practice. Great results and impressive comments when showing off woodworking.
