Dovetail Jigs Again - This vs. That
So after going through about 50 threads I think I've narrowed down my choice and just looking to validate thoughts.
Goals: Keep jig cost around $200 or less. For use with Dewalt 618 1/2" shank, (though I've also got a Bosch Colt trim router w/ 1/4" shank). I'm an average woodworker and have successfully made several furniture pieces. I don't really NEED to do dovetail joints, but I just kind of like the way they look and would like to give them a go. But I have neither the time nor inclination to learn the hand craftsmanship for this particular effect. As well, I have plans to do several pieces this spring with a bunch of drawers and wouldn't have the time to do it by hand.
Options include: Porter Cable 4216 Super Jig, Rockler Jig, or MLCS Master set.
I'm leaning towards 4216 as it appears to come with all bushings and bits. The black base on my Dewalt 618 SHOULD be immediately compatible. Though a little hassle as I'll have to change out base from the one I've got now as it's mounted differently under the router table.
So any reason this is a bad choice? From what I've read of others, this combo should wok ok. Not sure if I an make it work with my Bosch Colt as well; at least not with the default base, but that's not the priority.
Thanks for any thoughts.
