Interesting piece of kit, Herb.
Harry it is priced @ $44.95 USD for the individual sizes, or $129.95 USD for the kit of 4 sizes. I assume it is made in Canada,there is no indication of otherwise, and the fit and finish is excellent.A very clever jig for everyone making wood hinges if they don't have a lathe. I didn't see the price mentioned.
Malcolm, I have used it to drill up a bunch of dowel segments to have on hand, and it works very well. I have only used it for 1/2" dowels w/1/8" holes so far, it is easy and fast, and right on the money, the drill doesn't wander with the grain like was the problem in the past.Hi Herb, I had an earlier version of Rob's jig for making wooden hinges. I made a lot of boxes with box joints - one cut would be with a 1/2" bit and the other cut with a 3/16" bit and used the jig to make wooden hinges. Most boxes that I make now are with mitered corners. So wooden hinges wouldn't work.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
You didn't say whether you have use the jig.

Thanks for your comment.It seems a little expensive if it's for a one off but reasonable for regular use Herb.
