Default Jig and Fixture parts kit from Lee Valley

Lee Valley just put their jig and fixture parts kit on sale again. I bought one about a year ago and they are very handy to have around. There are a lot of parts in it so I would say they are pretty good value for the price.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

A WoodRiver 150 piece 1/4 x 20 kit from Woodcraft is $84.99. Granted some of it is brass, but I don't know that it's worth the extra money.

I have one one of them. Comes in handy a lot. For the price they are asking it is not a bad deal. I also know that Lee Valley don't carry the cheaper stuff from past experience with them.

I bought mine just before I built a new router fence. Sliding fences and T-bolted to T-tracks barely put a dent in my kit. All the handles are quite sturdy and a good selection of sizes.
