I have always wanted a good doweling jig but I guess at these prices it will never happen.

That is ridiculously expensive Don. Use these : Bushings and Inserts - Lee Valley Tools and make your own drilling jigs. May lack the bells and whistles but accomplish the same thing at a fraction of the price. All a doweling jig has to do is accurately register from the same starting point(s). I just made a jig out of scrap lumber and ply to drill dowel holes for the bottom shelf of a vanity I'm building. It just had to register the same from one corner and two edges to work. There should be one or two pictures in my uploads of one I made to drill the dowel holes for a center dividing panel in another cupboard.

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.

Woodpecker needs to get their angle adjusted...methinks they're a bit off perpendicular to the consumer need.

Who buys this [email protected] ... have they considered woodworker demographics...?

Do you suppose the senior leadership of the Woodpecker organization takes stupid pills every morning and a little extra just before the Marketing VP walks in with a brand new idea...??????

...and then there's the dopes that create the demand for this stuff...maybe they think there's gold under that red paint...

Are there any Woodpecker company reps on the forum...? Maybe they can speak up and justify this stupidity...

Truly deserving of a SNORT ! ! ! !


WHAT HAPPENED ?...ok...I'm back to normal now...


Gee...what a well-crafted tool that is...precision milling manufacturing at it's best...

Such a bargain. Think I'll order a few for resale.

I like many of the Woodpecker products, but don't take anything they send an email on seriously, because they charge times more than others do for aluminum products.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.

So where does this contraption fall? Certainly not in the commercial circles where production is much faster. And not in my shop where I rarely attempt to install dowels in my projects. And my shelf pin jig is a lot faster than this thing.

While it appears to be a good item and very versatile, I can't justify forking over that much moolah.

Maybe some of you furniture guys can chime in to enlighten me.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

I like several of the Woodpecker offerings but I can't justify their prices. I don't really need them and I won't pay what I feel is a rip off price.
