Hi Bob, I got one of those several months ago and can't say I ever got a decent dovetail out of it. Remember that I am also pretty new to wordworking and had never done a dovetail of any sort before so it might work ok for someone who understands dovetails. I have a Rockler jig and am slowly coming to terms with just how dovetails work and may dig the thing out one of these days and see how it does when I'm a bit better armed with knowledge. The claim is that it can be used either clamped to a bench with a handheld router or used on the table. I only tried it on the table and it kept putting my fingers uncomfortably close to the bit. :no:Hi there,
Has anybody had any experience with using the EZ Pro Dovetail Jig, which is sold by General Tools? It looks interesting, but seems fairly inexpensive and I wonder about its quality.
Thank you John, Roger and Bob, for your prompt replies. I guess that you have had mixed results with the EZ Pro but your feedback certainly is a help. The EZ is a cheap item but looks good and the DVD demos are encouraging so now I just have to get a quote for shipping. All the best, Bob.Yes, I've had it for a while now and will say it does a very decent job for me.
The learning curve is very short and the ease of use is great. My only recommendation for table use is, throw away the included bearing and use a template guide bushing in your table top instead. It works much better that way in my opinion. I can't comment on hand-held use since I only use mine with my table.
For the price and ease of use, I rate this jig at the top for a hobbiest. I wouldn't want to use it for production work but, then, that's work, not a hobby.
Thank you Bob. That is a great price. I am just checking to see how much to ship it to Australia. By the way, are you completely happy with your EZ Pro? Regards, Bob.
Hello again Bob,Hi Bob
" By the way, are you completely happy with your EZ Pro?"
Yes, so far,,I didn't have a good jig to do blind dovetails on the router table but now I have..
Hi Mike,hey bob would you happen to have a discount code for amazon?
Hello again Bob,
Thanks for that, it's encouraging to read good reports on it. I am not sure though whether Amazon will ship to Australia.
