Question E-Z Link dovetail system

I need to purchase a dovetail jig. I've considered the Rockler and the Keller. I would appreciate any feedback on the E-Z link system. Is it better , worse, or just different. Thanks.

I have used many dovetail jigs. The e-z link and heart like are nearly fool proof. For real dovetails. I like the Leigh as it makes both through and half blind. But it is pricey and there is a learning curve with it. The Keller is much better than the Rockler. If going that route, Sears is just as good and a lot cheaper. John Swanson

I have the Keller, I wanted something simple and idiot proof for my first dovetail jig, I have to say it is both!

I made my first dovetails and it was simple and they turned out great!

Stu,

Thanks for the great picture and recommendation on the dove tail jig. I have been pondering which way to go on a jig and I believe after seeing what you have done with this one that my problem may be solved.

While I was at it and since you invited me, I took a tour of your shop. You have some really nice ideas going on over there. I may have to steel (I mean "borrow") some of your set ups and ideas to use in my own shop.

Thanks for taking the time to share with us.
