Hi Mick

I don't have the GW one but I do have the Harbor Freight one and the Rockler one that are dead ringers for the GW..

They work well if you rework them a bit..

I own one of the Rockler jigs that this GW is the same as. I also purchased the through dovetail plate on clearance. This is perhaps the best thing to be said for this type of jig: They will do the job. There is a learning curve as with most tools, but you will be able to make decent dovetails in a short time.
