Default Dovetail Jigs

Hello all!

So I'm new to woodworking but am very serious about it becoming a big hobby and maybe a money maker in the future(?).

As for dovetail jigs, I didn't realize those things could be so expensive! I see that Lowes has a Porter Cable jig for around $100. Though I have seen some in a store called The Woodcraft that go up to above $400.

What are the major differences here in quality, uses and whatever else?

I find that woodwork is not a money making hobby. My guitars sell for £800, but only make me £2 per hour, as the parts cost so much. My woodturning sales have not payed for the tools that have produced the items. It is interesting and keeps me happy. I have made the furniture in the house.
