I would suggest the 1212 from Milescraft they also sale a lower price jig but the 1212 works very well with the new type ends and the newer clamps that come with it..the Craftsman is the same as the Milescraft older model..
I know this a an old thread but I was wondering if anyone had any new opinions or know of a excellent kit? I need to purchase one but want the best for my money and don't know much about it. Should I get one of these types or a pantograph type? Thanks, Terry
I'm a big fan of the Milescraft 1212 also. 2 years ago, I made signs for the whole family (about 30 signs) and never messed up on one. Make a good jig to hold your work and tie down the jig and nothing to it. Cover up any spacers you use to you don't forget they are just spacers, and works like a charm.
If anyone is doing freehand routing, are you perhaps using the precision router base from Stew Mac? I use a Dremel and recently came across that as a good way to possibly do lettering, but curious if anyone else has used it for such a purpose.
