Hi

I don't have that jig but a mate got one and called me over to give him a hand with it, I will say I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box and after two hours with it I said this thing is a joke,we got one drawer done in two hours and it tuned out like crap,the dovetail is a very easy job to do with the right jig, like I told him,I can show you the water but I can't make you drink it...the error in the jig is that you must reset it every time for each dovetail and that puts the error in place and once you have one error the next one is in error also.
I will say if you want to put in blind dovetails get the EZ dovetail jig and the next step up is the Katie jig (sommerfeld jig) .
So the bottom line is he took it back and got his money back but he didn't tell me what he got, he is a bit hard headed like me LOL..two old men in the wood shop at one time is not a good thing LOL.. :nhl_checking::moil:
