Default Porter Cable 5008 Template Guide
Report Post Report This Post!

I have a Porter Cable Model 5008 dovetail template and am searching for the template guide (Part No. 48029) that permits making rabbeted joints in one pass. The part is no longer made/stocked by PC dealers/suppliers so I'm hoping that someone will be able to point me to a dealer or site that may have old stock available. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi tjwing

You may want to check the number for the jig, the 5008 is a jig saw number..
Porter-Cable 5008 Jig Saw


I'm not to sure why you would want to use the jig for " rabbeted joints " it's a easy job with the router and a edge guide or on the router table..

Just asking why

Thanks for your quick reply. I am certain of the model number of the dovetail template; I have the original instructions in hand. (As I said, it is an older - no longer made - model; probably 20 years old.) I am also sure of the part number I need; again, taken from the original instructions.

I used the term "rabbeted joints" simply because that is the term given in the instructions. What it essentially means is that the dovetail is set into a rabbet cut (by whatever means) on the side of a drawer, thereby permitting the side of the drawer to overlap the faceframe.

Hi tjwing

I think you're talking about this type of setup :

It's a tricky setup because of the rabbet must be put on the stock 1st. then the dovetails are put in place ...the spacers must be dead on,,( it's quick way to make firewood ) I would suggest just to add the front to the drawer after you have the drawer(s) made...if you want the look over the overlap front..the handle will do most of the holding..

see below

Bob,

Thanks. Yes, we are talking about the set-up pictured in your attached thumbnail. And of course, you are right that attaching a face to a drawer is one way to make the drawer. In the past, I have used my current template successfully to make the rabbeted joint; it just requires an additional step. So I was/am looking for the template guide that would eliminate that one step. I'm thinking it may be a futile search!

HI tjwing

You're Welcome
I don't see how it can be done in the dovetail fixture,,,with a extra template it's normal to put the rabbet on 1st. but you said that it can be done all at one time, can you post the manual I would love to see how they tell you how to do it..

Bob,

Attached are the pages from the manual that explain the process. (At least I hope it's attached!)

TJWING,

Can I ask a favor? Could you (or anyone out there) scan in the complete manual and post (or email) the whole file? I have one of these "Dovetail Attachments" (SN 802) and have yet to obtain one from PC or ServiceNet. Any help would be appreciated and thanks in advance!
