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.
You may want to check the number for the jig, the 5008 is a jig saw number..

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.
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!
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..
