Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dovetails more the masses! 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. September 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleased and Happy I use this to make drawers and boxes. It took a whiole to learn the ins and outs but in the long run paid off. HD had the best price and shipping was great. Ii would recomend this to anyone for wood working with a little patience . After a year I am still very pleased and it is holding up great. December 14, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very accurate. Outstanding quality. This is my second DT jig (my 1st Porter Cable) and it is far superior to previous jig. September 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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? February 29, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by QUICKER AND MORE ACCURATE THAN HAND CHISSELS I got into wood working a few months ago and love doing things by hand, but at this moment my dovetailing skills are pretty bad especially since i dont have a reall work table yet. this tool has made dovetailing easy and quick. i love it!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Difficult to use, wonderful once understood Cuts excellent dovetail joints quickly once the process is well understood. December 29, 2012
