I've had my leigh for 10yrs or more and have made thousands or joints with it, but I have to agree it's not the easiest jig to use, and even back then it was very pricey. I like the ability to have randomly spaced tails and the different attachments make it very versatile. Although if I go 6 months with out using it I have to start all over again with the manual. But once it's set up correctly it will let you fly through drawers like mad. I find 2 dw625 plunge routers set up with corresponding bits helps to speed up half blind work immensely.
When I die sprinkle me with saw dust and no one will know I'm dead
