Default Sommerfeld Katie Jig

I am looking for the original Sommerfeld Katie Dovetail Jig with the adjustable pin and tail pieces.
Wanting to purchase if you have one for sale or know where I can find one.

I bought one within the last 6 months - they should still be available from the manufacturer...not many out there used.

PS: You need two different bit sets for 3/4" and then anything thinner walled. Only $35/set so is affordable.

Marc's new jig is the same as the Katie version, all parts and accessories are interchangeable. I wouldn't sell mine and would be surprised if you find one for sale. It comes with your first set of bits. You can find video on YouTube on using the jig, search Marc Sommerfeld, dovetail jig. really helplful information, including suggestions on marking it for easier setup.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

You can order here - I swapped out the solid jig plate for the individual 'teeth' at no extra cost - and got the half blind plate at the same time for another $99. I'll show you the labeling I did on it if you get one...

What I've found on the website appears to be a fixed pin and tail setup like the Keller and Peachtree models. I want to be able to make variable spaced dovetails and I believe the previous version had individual pins and tails and with the use of spacer blocks this was possible. Thanks for your replies. I'll give Marc a call and see whats available.

Marc is suffering from ALS - he may not be available. You can get the individual pins and tails instead of the 'plate' at no extra cost. It's what I did...

Thanks for all the input. I followed your advice Bstrom and was able to order the same setup as you. Very nice folks at Sommerfeld's. I would be interested to see how you labeled your jig.
