Default Route-R-Joint Systems

I was at the Tampa woodshow, seen the Rout-R- Joint system from Wood line,it looks very impressive , I alwost bought it , but than I see at the booth from Peachtree Woodworking almost the same thing , but now see the one from Woodland has two Toggle Clamps in their kit , but Peachtree has 3 toggle clamps in their kit and is made from different material also.
I don't know if one is better than the other or not.
Maybe somebody out there knows and if you do please let me know.
Thanks

Hi vospit

You may want to take look at the one below,, it's bit cheaper and you get a little bit more with it plus free shipping..

I should note it's setup to use the 3/16" router bits that like to break off easy and the norm is 5/8" max. thickest stock..your asking alot from that small of a router bit.. plus note the HSS call on the router bit...not a carb.bit.so to say will need to order some extra router bits fore sure.
Be sure to read the reviews on this jig on the web site, some had errors getting the joints to fit.

Vos, I was at the Tampa show and saw the system being sold by the Peachtree booth. From what I gather, it is a knockoff of the Woodline sysytem and is made in China. I have been using the Woodline jig for about 4 years now, and some of the improvements made to the jig by the other company I like. For instance, I would love to have the third toggle clamp. It just make sense to have it. Also, the china system look more substantial. Having said that, I have had the Woodline system for a while and their customer service has been superb. On occasion, I have damaged a couple of the templates and they have replaced them free (just like they promised). Which ever one you buy, please make sure that you center the bit in the bushing. That is the critical step in getting decent fitting dovetails. Good luck, and let me know which one you go with. I'm curious as to how the other system performs. If I knew how, I'd post an image of a box I made last week for my daughter. It has the teddy bear dovetails.

A day without routing is a waste...

You got it, Bob...only 6 errors. That is why it is the FRONT of the box. Sometimes I think 6 boards and a hammer & some nails might be fun again.

Does it have something to do with the tight curves through the ears or is it the stock or both?

Hi Steve

I still like it,, the more things change the more they stay the same,,

I have a box or two my granddad made with nails and raw hide glue,,it's in the basement and holds some paper work,,and has for about 40 years or so, ,,,,nails work unlike some of the new joints we all try and do..

By the way is that box for the kids,, I like the teddy bear joints for kids toy box..I just may need to try them for the grand kids puzzles..

Originally, the joints were for my father's new bride (never really liked her much, but you have to play the game sometimes). Anyway, she liked bears so I thought she would appreciate something with that theme. Now, they are primarily for children, but on ocassion a friend will want one. And yes, there is some woodfiller...
