Default Yet another dovetail jig question

Greetings all;
I am getting ready to work on a cedar chest and was thinking of dovetailing it instead of dadoes or lock miter-ing the corners together. I have a p.c. 4212 jig that I have used many times, but the chest will be about 16-17" deep. I have read the supplemental manual that Porter Cable puts out, and the part about the clamping board and moving the template doesn't give me nice warm fuzzies about being able to repeat the location of the template for accuracy. So---the question is, has anyone used this procedure with any luck or should I look for another jig ? As I will be glueing up the cedar, I don't want to wind up with a couple of hundred bucks worth of cedar scrap.

Hi Bob

The neat little EZ dovetail jig comes with a plug to make sure the joints all come out right on , you could call it a indexing plug I'm almost sure you can make the same thing for your PC dovetail jig.
