Cut indestructible mortise and tenon joints with absolute precision. Can create tiny tenons less than 1/4" wide—you have to see it to believe it.

Overview

If you can use a plunge router, you can cut strong, perfectly fitting mortise and tenon joints in no time. Easily rout single, double, twin, quadruple or even triple mortise and tenon joints, plus angled and compound-angled joints, in stock up to 3" x 5". Virtually any plunge router will fit and still be available in seconds for other uses.

Nothing provides matching joint halves with the ease and accuracy of the new Leigh FMT! Named one of Workbench Magazine's Top 10 Innovative Tools of 2004, the FMT Jig allows you to rout both parts of the joint with just one joint guide, one router bit and one jig setup. Make perfect joints for everything from match-stick frames and miniature tables (rout joints smaller than 1/4" - so tiny they're almost beyond belief!) to full-size chairs and 6-foot garden gates.
  • It's remarkably easy to set up perfectly aligned multiple mortises and tenons on the FMT. Precision and repeatability are made possible by adjustable table limit stops that control the table's range of motion in both X and Y axes.
  • With each mortise or tenon position sighted and limit stops set, you're ready to rout double, quadruple, or even triple joints with the same ease and precision as a single mortise and tenon.
  • Joint tightness is infinitely adjustable by simply turning a calibrated knob; the fit is recordable and repeatable.
  • Sliding cursor provides easy alignment.
  • Bolts to a board and clamps to a bench.
  • No dedicated router is required!
  • Comes with universal sub-base that attaches to virtually all plunge routers, five 5/16" guides that will make over 20 sizes of mortise and tenon, guide stand, 5/16" spiral upcut cutter with 1/2" shank, two cam-action Speed-Clamps, outrigger bars, adjustable sidestop fence, fully illustrated user guide, screwdrivers, and mounting hardware.
  • The ACMTC Accessory Kit (#39770 - Sold Separately) includes eight 1/4" guides, four 3/8" guides, four 1/2" guides, eight-piece solid carbide spiral upcut bit set, and wood storage box.

Very nice product. Setup is tedious...

Gary H from Farmington, Missouri Posted April 1, 2012
Very nice product. Setup is tedious but not hard the first time. Once you have your router "mated" with the jig this is a lot of fun. This thing takes the inexperience out of the equation. As long as you follow directions you will make some very nice joints. I would make a reference block and as you get guides make a mortise and tenon and mark it with guide size and bit size. This makes it a lot easier if you are building a project that requires several different sizes.

Happy with the product, arrived in...

Happy with the product, arrived in two days, spend the extra do it right!

I think this is one of...

Mark Z from Chapel Hill, NC Posted July 12, 2010
I think this is one of the best-designed woodworking tools I've ever used. When you try to make stupid mistakes it stops you. All the little things are done well and construction is excellent. I just did 16 tenons in about an hour and the last one was just as good as the first one. Placed right, sized right. What you want from a tool - consistent results with less effort. Not to mention great service from the Leigh.I'd like better dust collection - the port hole is too big for end mortises so I have to place a block in the dust collector when mortising. Otherwise it's a 10.
