Default Lee Valley dovetail jig

Hi members. In my Canadian copy of Lee Valley Tool's catalogue they list what they call an Economy Dovetail jig at a very reasonable price. I have waited six months for Amazon Canada to restock a P.C. dovetail jig I ordered but I am running out of patience. Has anyone had experience with the Lee Valley Jig? Oldrusty

Hi Bj. Sorry, I don't understand your reply. Is my terminology " router jig " wrong? Being new to routing this could be so. Oldrusty

Bj's reply is a 'link' to another site. If you click on the link you will be taken to the new site.

anything I have gotten from LeeValley over the decades has been 1st rate and customer service is 5 star plus....

use it...
don't like it, send it back on their dime...

Hi Stick. What did you mean when Bj said " Same thing at 1/3 the price " You replied don't believe it for a heart beat. The next reply you went on to say that Lee Valley had a great reputation. Confusing. Oldrusty

anything from "Harbor Freight and Salvage" is not the same thing just a cheap knock off of someone else's product...
