If it looks like the attached photo it is a dovetail jig.

Outside of that I would be unable to help you without a photo or a better description of it as there are literally hundreds of router jigs out there.

Regards

Harold

Pal, you are on the money, thats the one. I wrote to Carb I tools and the reply I recieved indicated that it is a discontinued model. You did well, considering my description was incorrect!.Its described as a Dovetail Jig 12" - would this be suited to my Black and Decker KW900EKA, and how hard /easy would it be to use?

Hi Keith:

There is an article here on the forums that will tell you all you need to know about those dovetail jigs. http://www.routerforums.com/woodwork...rands-1-a.html

In that article there are links to a selection of manuals each of which has slightly varied instructions on their use. Read them all,, before you tear your hair out, not after. That's what they're there for.
