What is the maximum thickness it can handle

Asked by Redman September 22, 2016
5
Answers

It can handle material from 1/2" thick thru at least a full 1" thickness. You could probably fit 1-1/2" thick material in the jig, but your pegs would definitely be justified closer to one surface than the other.

The guides are off by 1.5/32". So when you assemble your pieces, they are off by 3/32".

Terrific time saver! I was hesitant to spend $30 for just one project, but my homemade jig was wearing out and I needed something fast so I took a chance on this product. Was I ever surprised at how much better it was from my homemade jig and so easier and faster to use. My "good" rating instead of "excellent" is because the drill collars were of a newer design that pinched the drill bit. However, it DID NOT even get close to squeezing/pinching tight enough to be of any use. I used a 3/8" pipe nipple and a washer to limit the drill bit depth instead! Awesome product, otherwise! (The included dowel pins seemed to be smaller in diameter than anticipated, so I would recommend not using them and buy a separate pack of dowel pins.

So calif
Drill Stops not square & set screw comes out

I purchase for some furniture repair the alignment mechanism is good. However the drill stops do not mount square to the drill bit and the set screw comes out of the stop before it reaches the drill bit. Eve it you mount it on the recessed flute the stop isn't square. The stop needs to be longer to keep it square to the drill bit. See attached pic top is General #841 and lower is an old Craftsman / General bit and drill stop.

It works but I had to go to YouTube to understand How to use it. It did not come with instructions. You’d think it was straight forward but there is a rhyme and a reason on which holes to use when.

Very loose tolerances
My experience has been about the same as most of everyone else reviewing this tool... the bushings are too sloppy of a fit on the inside diameter. A different 3/8” drill fit a little better, but the fit was still very loose. The drill stop collars are not a good fit on the deep flute profile of the included bits. You definitely get what you pay for with this tool.. a low budget entry level dowel jig.

Poor Design, usability
This is a very poor quality design and manufacturing quality. It is barely usable, as it’s not engineered for accuracy or strength. As well all the dowels in the pack were second quality dowels. I would not have bought this for the exception there was nothing else available and I was desperate. Although I did make use of this tool, it required an exceeding amount of care and was still not very accurate. I do not recommend and would not buy again if possible
