I don't do much with dovetails, so the simplicity of the Katey jig appeals. I can never remember the exact sequence for using the Porter-Cable jig. In its day it was revolutionary, but obviously the sun is setting on the PC style jig.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I am totally inexperienced with dovetails, Tom - glad to have settled on a worthwhile jig, tho. The ‘slipsheet’ adjustability is very simple and hopefully will speed the whole precise fitment process along.

I’ve got a few small box-type pieces planned to get my chops down. Then it’s on to a desk with drawers, or something useful like a hallway stand or Shaker wall table.
