Question Pin and Crescent jig

Any opinions on this particular setup.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Another knock off of Bob Rosendahls EZ-Link system. MLCS offers more template choices. You can view the original at Oak Park John.

Like MIke says, it is a knock off or possibly the same jig and templates MLCS has at a bargain price. After looking again it really isn't a bargain. The Woodline version comes with only 2 templates whereas the MLCS comes with 4 templates for the basic unit. If it wasn't so expensive through MLCS I would like to have one myself.

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

Hi

Just to add a note , Woodline copied the OP jig about 5 or 6 years ago and Rockler also sales one like it, Woodline did the same on the Spacer Jig from OP about the same time..

Hmm, I didn't read it that way Ken

I wa kind of interested in the pin and crescent but it doesn't look like you can get the templates ala carte from MLCS, gotta buy bundles. I'm not real gun ho about picking one up but $110 for the pieces plus 4 templates looked like a decent deal.
