I am in the market for the best dovetail jig that I can get. However, there are so many and so varied on the market that I've gotten confused about what features are the most useful. Does anybody have some advice?

There are a lot of jigs on the market today and most of them look like they do the job. I don't have any advise rather than my opinion. I was in the market myself for one of the best and ended up with the PC 24" Omnijig. It has some features like the Leigh and a couple of others but I like the idea of set and forget. The set up blocks are used for certain applications and exact repeatability results when changing from set up to set up. I have not had time to really test this jig to it's full potential yet but I like what I see so far. This is my third dovetail jig like this and my second PC. This things fairly large and has some heft to it, but that's what I like about it. I hate cheap stuff! So far so good.I would love to share more info with you as to this is an expensive purchase for most. If you like simple,Keller has a jig that I almost bought before this PC and now Leigh just came out with their R9 which looks like the same principle.

Cheers,
Greg

Greetings Stephen and welcome to the router forums, we are glad to have you join us.

I use an Akeda, it to is pricey except for mine. I picked it up off Craig's list for 200.00 including a DeWALT 618 Router. There are things I wish it did but for just dovetails it't good. Find What you want and watch Craig's list, or other such places you might get a real deal.
