Default Dovetails on the Router Table

I am interested in a dovetail jig I can use on my Router table. I have found the MLCS, the Keller and the Katie. Which do you recommend? Are there any other jigs you may suggest?

Thanks for the link Bob. All three of the jigs I mentioned, as well as the General, seem to be identical in function but not in price. Is less expensive better in this case?

Hi Frank

The General is more for Blind dovetails but it can also be setup like the others by using a longer dovetail bit.( 7/16" 8 deg. dovetail bit)

I have and like the Katie jig, because it can be setup for both types of dovetails.
See the Katie jig on Marc Sommmerfeld web site for the Blind fixture for the Katie jig ( and the spec. bits needed for blind dovetails) plus on the Katie you can adjust the spacing easy..unlike the others plus you can make your own Katie jig easy and cheap..(cheap old SOB I am.) you just need one finger template for a pattern ( about 15.oo dollar item)

Sommerfeld's Tools For Wood
Just a note you can buy just one finger from Sommerfeld tools.
