Hi Gary |
See link above but you can add a bearing(s) to any dovetail bit the longer the better..with lock collars..

Here's a link
The real key for the HF jig and others is to use a dovetail bit with a bearing on it, in that way the bit is always dead on unlike using the guides that are never dead on with the shank of the bit, just a little bit off and the dovetails will not fit right..that's a little tip that took me 3 years of working with dovetail jigs..

|Cochese||Thanks Bob. I'll check out your uploads a bit later. I have an idea for easy setup, but want to see what you've come up with first.|

You can get them also from Grizzly a little lower in the price..

Different style templates, I should have said. |
Last couple of times I went into Rockler they had a few of their templates on clearance.

Most are made by WoodStock
" add templates " not to sure what you mean the templates they come with them are fine it's the wood stock and the clamping system that has the down fall with them.
I did rework the HF one and now it works right every time, see the rework in my uploads..

I know it's not always accurate to just go by looks, but it seems like the Rockler, HF and Peachtree jigs are, if not the same, very close.
I was thinking it might be nice to add templates from the more supported versions to the HF base, if that was possible. Anyone have any insight to this?
