Default Porter Cable Dovetails

Hi Everybody,
I just received a PC dovetail jig complete with the halfblind, (4210) through, (4212) and mini, (4215) jigs.
I have promised to make a jewelry box for a friend using the 4215 jig. Does anybody have a PDF or video that demonstrates the use of this product?
The user manual that came with the jig is not very helpful.
Thanks.
Oodges.

At one time Rockler had a downloadable Supplemental manual in PDF format for the PC dovetail jig which is a bit more detailed than the original manual for the 4216 jig. If not just Google Porter Cable Dovetail Jig Supplemental Manual. As far as the original manual I find it very detailed and an excellent guide to using the jig. At least the one that came with my jig is.

When something is advertised as being foolproof there is always a better class of fool that comes along to prove them wrong.

I have jusy gotten the Rockler dovetail jig and made a really nice half blind on 4th try,what I did was read as much of instructions as possible then played with it and learned more on it just playing,but good advice given to me was Play a few hours with it then leave it alone a day or so when come back it will make more sense.. make sure the wood Ya play with is same size square and thickness....Hope this helps

That's what I was talking about. I printed out the supplemental manual then put it and the original manual in a loose leaf note book. Makes it easier than going from my 'puter to the jig and forgetting what the hell I read. Yes I am older than dirt and my memory ain't got a memory anymore.
