This jig will make 1/2 inch dovetails. It bolts to my table in the same spot as my previously made boxjoint jig.

I would like to make something like that myself. What type of bit, size and angle did you use? and how do you cut the pins to match?

I used a 14 degree 1/2 inch dovetail bit. I just made the jig and I haven't cut a full piece yet. I will let you know how it worked out later.

Are there any up dates on the jig, with making the pins?

How can you post a story on a device that you havent used yet? The cutting of the tails is easy with or without your jig. But how about the pins?

This is absolutely useless. Is this site for real? I expect serious guidelines when I turn to a site like this and go to all the trouble to register.

Unbelievable. It always amazes me how unjustly critical people can get on a community site, that is free to use and register for. The amount of truly valuable information on this site is considerable, provided by others who also freely use the site as well. Even this post may inspire someone to build and improve upon the original jig concept that was started by g-man. Making unwarranted attacks as demonstrated above is just simply a waste of everyone's time.

Might also note that the original posting date is 2004.

I agree with Mike, unbelievable and yeah, that registering thing is an awful lot of trouble to do.
