Default introduction

Thanks for the valuable resource of this site. I have built a few items and confess to owning 3 routers--a used ridgid trim router, a PC 690 and the big Triton--I am about to launch into an arts & Crafts sideboard for my wife which will need lots of mortise and tenon work. I am thinking of using a horizontal jig I built --it isn't the fancy style like the one seen in the MCLS catalog, but if I can keep it from slipping it should work ok--anyone made newer horizontal router jigs?

I believe bobj3 has made a couple of these. You might be able to find the posts via the search function.

Hi Bill

Here's one of them but I do suggest using the JessEm mill slot jig, it's so fast and easy it will blow your mind how easy it can be done, no router needed but if you want to use your Horz.set up it will do it also but you will need a sled like the snapshots below, but I do suggest using the lose tenons way that you can make on your router table quick and easy...
