Do the bits used in this jig have to be Porter Cable bits? I'm looking to purchase some additional bits because I'm going to be using this jig a lot and want to purchase replacement bits for the ones that come in the box with this jig?
Asked by: Ben
I have tried others but keep going back to the porter bits. Make sure you check angle and length of bit you buy.

Does it come with more than one size template for larger or smaller dovetails

Asked by: Rgar
Yes it does, templates and bits, but just as a side note order a spare set or two of bits; They're made of carbide and are just a bit fragile.

Will the Deluxe Dovetail Jig hold a 3 1/2 hp router?

Will the Deluxe Dovetail Jig hold a 3 1/2 hp router?
Asked by: Ron
Regrettably, I don't have an answer to this question. I do own this jig, but my router is rated at 2.5 hp. and it works just fine with this jig.

12 in. Deluxe Dovetail Jig Combination Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 131.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good product. This is a very good tool. I am retired and setting up a workshop to build cabinets and furniture and so I wanted to add dove tail joints to my skill set. The jig was easy to assemble however, the directions for using it could be improved. I went online and watched several videos before I finally figured out how to set the jig up and properly layout my pieces. I used the miniature joint jig first (the one that takes the 1/4" bits) and found that the factory settings for the bit depth were not accurate and I went through a lot of scrap blocks and test joints before I got it right, but it was worth the effort. The standard joint jig (the one that uses the 1/2" bits) was much easier to use and set up and the factory settings were perfect. Take note of the suggested increments in width for the boards being used, to get good looking joints. I didn't the first time around and scrapped the pieces and went to Home Depot and bought some more lumber and read the instructions the next time and they came out perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two small improvements needed Overall, this is a slick jig. Two small improvements are needed however: 1. The laser etched labels that identify the joint type and which reference line to use should be engraved. They are too hard to see after just a couple of uses. 2. I've found the bit depth setting pads utterly useless. Go with the alternate method that is found in the advanced manual (which you have to get on-line from Porter-Cable - It does not come with the kit). It's a far more effective method. I knocked it down on durability based solely on the etching vs engraving of important references. That's probably not a big issue if you use it frequently enough to "just know" the right lines and orientations. But they've become almost unreadable after fewer than a dozen joints. The rest of the jig appears well designed and solidly built, Barring any major goofs on my part, I expect to get many miles out of it. A big plus would be if they included a storage case (even as an option). My first project with this item will be to use it to make a case for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BPNJ I’ve never cut a dovetail in my life. My first test run with this jig looked like it was done by a machine. The instructions were helpful. If you read them carefully and watch a couple of YouTube videos, you shouldn’t have a problem. Do your homework before cutting. The guides fit my Dewalt router perfectly. I’m fairly new to woodworking and with my limited skill and knowledge, this device provided a professional looking end product.

I don't have the 1/2 inch collet and my base plate hole is to big to hold templates. Once I get this straightened away I'll be moving forward into using my new devise wisely.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I tried to use the dovetail jig to cut half... I tried to use the dovetail jig to cut half blind dove tails in 3/4 inch oak and was very unsuccessful. The oak material kept chipping out even with brand new carbide bits.I had good success on poplar and pine that was 1/2 inch thick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME DOVETAIL JIG !! I have used this dovetail jig for about a year now and I love it. It is easy to use and is real rugged. It comes with a 1/2" shank dovetail bit which doesn't break like 1/4" shank bits do. Once you get it set up, (which is real easy) you can make dovetails very quickly. I make cabinets and I only make dovetail drawers so this jig gets a lot of use. It is nice to have a dedicated router for this jig so you don't have to change bits all the time. But this jig does have a nice bit depth gauge so you can install a bit very quickly. The manual is very good also.

This product works well as long as you identify the different jigs,guide collars and bits and pay attention to the step by step instructions. Plan to use some scrap to nail down the adjustments.
