Itís about the same price as the UJK Parf dog drilling jig. The UKJ will be as accurate as a CNC but you have to build plywood jig for dust collection.

The Woodpecker will have superior dust collection using a router but is a trade off for slightly less accuracy. Bearing age. The bearing get older theyíll loose accuracy as they wear overtime.

With this being a onetime tool, it beg to question where you will get replacement bearing from if Woodpeckers doesnít make them anymore.

The onetime tool concept is silly. Life happens. Itís not a good idea to spend huge amounts of money on onetime Tools that required parts.

$170 for a jig you might use twice in your lifetime (once for old guys)? I think Woodpecker is running low on good ideas.

I agree completely, you would need to have a lot of use for this to justify buying it, or too much spare cash laying around and you cant think of ways to spend it so why not buy a jig you may only use once. I'd rather make one if I needed it. N

I agree I think the Parf drilling would be much better. I wish there was someone that would rent tools like this to others. I have seen this done with some gunsmithing tools. It works well.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

It depends on how offen you use your Track Saw on the top. Most heavy track saw users wear out a top every 2-3 years. If your garage is your shop, your MDF top will eventually warp over 5-6 years and will have to be replaced.
