Smile Routing without a bushing guide

Is ist possible to make a Dovetail Joint with Dovetail Jig and not use a bushing guide on the router? This may have been answered at sometime and I missed it.

Frank,

Some dovetail jigs are designed to be used with bearing guided bits, others using guide bushings.

trying to use a jig designed for a bushing with a bearing guided bit will probably change the geometry of the bit and the joint won't fit.

Hi Frank

" on the router? " yes if you use the router table to put the dovetails in place.
