To win #145 you have to look at the picture, tell us what it is and what it is used for and make sure you give us some good details...... The first one with all this information will get 200 points.

Have at it!

This one is easy and no eye strain!!

You are looking at the Oak Park Box Joint & Dovetail Jig.

The spacer rail fence is available in 3 different sizes 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" and used for accurate cutting of box joints on a table top router surface.

The fence is attached with screws or clamps to the surface over the router plate and then aligned or spaced the appropiate distance from the matching spiral router bit ( ie 1/4" space with 1/4" bit, 3/8" space with a 3/8 bit , and 1/2 " space with a 1/2 " bit )

Once the first cut has been made the workpiece it is then move over the raised rail and will be in the exact position for the next cut, and continue until the end of the workpiece.

The set up for dovetail joints is similar.

Router Workshops has a shop tip with the complete instructions of using the jig at the following url


The spacer fence and rails can be purchased from Oak Park at the following url for CDN customers:


and for USA customers at:


Hope this is what you were looking for.


Start Safe!!! Finish Safe !!!

Way to go! Hope the references and your post helped anyone who did not understand what this tool is and does. I should note that the dovetail is a sliding dovetail....... just wanted to make that clear.
