    Gonna sound like a dumb question... I see a "line" in the router base plate of several videos, for indexing the Leigh guide bushing, where does that line go? Just randomly marking the base plate doesn't seem like the greatest idea, I assume it goes either parallel with or 90° to the jig, but to...

    Okay, it's a few years old now, but here is my variation of a dado jig for routers. It relies on pattern bits. You can use whichever size meets your needs. While it shares much in common with others dado jigs, I believe my modifications to the general design make it easier and quicker to use...
