bobj3 Hi Gary

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

bobj3 HI

Here's a link

http://www.routerforums.com/general-...etail-jig.html

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..

bobj3 HI

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 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?
