New to making dove and box...

William C from Bettendorf, IA Posted February 19, 2013
New to making dove and box joints..... Using the drill press, I made two surface clamp boards at once, one for a backup. After playing around with the router, I immediately ordered the accessory kit. Now that I understand the geometry involved, I'm impressed with the engineering of the metal template and the options. Eight degrees is probably all I need, but wonder if Leigh will offer other plates in the future for this setup? Suggest Leigh provide a machined 0.777" spacer as part of their accessory kit. My eyes are too old to see beyond the first 7. Also, I have substituted a mid-sized Irwin quick-grip clamp on the left side. Bench guide book 6-22, should say "start with e10 guide". Enjoying it, lets see if I can put a whole box together!

Leigh has made a break-through with this system which compensates and has adjustments for tolerances in cutting tools, router run-out and in the template itself. Cuts both dovetails and finger joints. Yes to have to make a beam, that's why it's priced the way it is. If you don't have the skills or tools to make the beam, then perhaps this tool is beyond your reach as a woodworker - my humble opinion. Highly recommended to the serious woodworker.

I could make the beam with the rest of my fingers cut off! This jig is excellent if you do alot of more serious work.
