Default Mortise and Tennon Jig anyone seen this??

Hi everyone,
have been looking at these plans but unsure as there are so many out there.
Wondering if anyone has any experience of these and if so how do you rate them
Woodworking Jigs helps machinery reach their full potential.
any guidance would be appreciated.
thanks

I was visiting Bobj just yesterday, and looked at his M&T jig. Took a couple pictures. Bob Rosenthal designed it. Quite simple to make and use. I'm sure Bj will be around shortly to advise you.

the links were referring to a centering thingy...seemed like polycarbonate ringy thing??
Any chance of some direct plans for making this??
I believe you are the man for sorting this but I need clear guidance rather than somelinks which seem to outine something differnt to what I need.
The pics do indeed look complicated.....maybe I should leave mortice and tennon for a later date when I am more competent.

I believe he means the base plate with centering pins.

HI Paul

" I am more competent " = I think that would be best
I did post the plans and I'm sorry you don't get it ,,,it's so simple, it's all base on the Geometry ,,, from point A to C the one in the center (B) the bit ,,will always be dead on center..

This may help you get it
http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?p...1FE7A43A785DEB

The jig is just a way to hold the stock,the key is the router base plate with pins or bearing..(for floating type Tenons/Loose Tenons) but it can be used also the other way (stud type Tenons) but it takes more of a setup. (like below)

But the one below maybe your bag

+++++++++
just one more jig at $149.oo

****++++

BUT the very best one I have found and use is the one below.
for Loose Tenons, I can use 3/8" to 1 1/2" wide (and wider if needed) stock and no router needed

Let's try this.
This is a drawing of the base plate which a router is mounted. The bit is at the center, in the hole.
The 2 pins, (or bearings) are against either side of the board that you wish to create a mortise. They are on the same center-line as the bit, and equal distance from center. This puts the bit at the center of the board edge, and when you plunge the bit into the wood and slide the base plate along the edge, you create a mortise. That mortise is centered in the board edge.

The jig Bob and I have posted is nothing more than a way to hold the wood steady, and the bit perpendicular, as you create the mortise.
