Default Tenoning Jig...?

If I were to buy a tenoning jig which would you recommend...?

...with an adjustable fence for those pesky compound angle jobs (splining, etc)...?

Grizzly, Jet, Rockler, Shop Fox, etc...

Thanks in advance...

Nick

Not sure my experiences will help you or not. I have use Leigh mortise and tennon jig, FMT for a while and finally return it.

Very limited jig and I don't like it at all. The cutting is not precise and requires a lot of adjustment afterwards. It's a pain in the butt.

A few years ago i picked up a Grizzly. Previous owner had it for 8 or 10 years--the styrofoam inner box had never been opened. I cut the tape, opened the styrofoam lid, saw the cosmoline on the main body and set it aside to clean up later. Still haven't gotten back to it!!

The delta models were once the gold standard. I'm not sure that's the case anymore.

Most mainline woodworking brands have a tenoning jig that is very similar in design.

You might select the model that has the best reviews. On amazon.com, it looks like the Grizzy has the best reviews. If you have a tablesaw that accepts a dado stack, you might consider that method of cutting tenons. It's very simple and the dado is good for a host of other things.

Amazon.com: tenoing jig

consider a Domino...

the Leigh FMT Pro has a bit of a learning curve but I still believe it to be the cat's meow...
