I tried to post the link to the ad but I guess I am to newbie yet.
If it the one I looked at on craigslist from Indiana it says Garrett next to the description. I am not familiar with that particular jig but I also don't use a jig for dovetails. I use a precision edge guide from Microfence that way I get to choose the size and spacing of the dovetails so all of the joints look hand cut.

Yea, that is the one, Some of the jigs allow you to move the dovetail spacing where you want but the one in the pic doesn't look like one of them.

Hi Indy:

That is the generic dovetail jig available from $29.95 (on sale) to over $200 (Porter Cable version.) The one in your link is no bargain. You may have parts missing and probably no manual and certainly no warranty, nor accessories or options. The best I've found is the BusyBee version and the manual is actually quite good.

Dont forget to live life for fear of death grasp each day and live it to it full otherwise it is pointless.
