Rock Solid Jig
Built very sturdy; you can feel it in the weight. Extremely easy to use. Centers on the piece and easy to line up on the right spot. It's been working great for me. Made in the U.S.A too; gotta love that. Very happy with this purchase.

2nd set
I ordered this second set for my wood shop out in Tennessee. The initial one I ordered out here worked great. Very solid jig, you can tell it'll last you a long time. Set up is easy, and the results can't get much better.

Can this jig make corner and tee joints?
Garry E on Nov 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It should be able to do that. The big thing that this jig does is to make sure that the dowel is centered on the wood. If you can precisely determine the location of the dowel location on the second piece, it should work. I suggest you also get the dowel marking pieces which would help locate the location of the hole on the second piece.

Can I use this kit to drill to an 8" depth?
Scott M on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You certainly can, if you have a bit long enough. This jig will keep your bit straight as you bore through the wood. The depth is only dependent on the bit length. You'd need a bit that was about 10" long if you want to make the hole without removing the jig and completing the last portion of the hole using the bore that you've already started as a guide for the final depth.
I read in a review that there is plastic on it is this so ?
Bob H on Oct 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This tool is built like a brick. It is very accurate and easy to use. The more you use it the quicker you get with the tool. If it has plastic in it I do not know where it is. I have built doors shutters and picture frames.

How tall is the pilot hole assembly?
Scott M on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Each of the aluminum sides is 2 3/4" tall. The center bushing plate is 1 1/2" tall.
does the complete doweling set come with bushings?
tom l on Dec 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, everything you need to get started on your project. Love mine
I would like to drill two holes (either 1/4" or 5/16") with a spacing of roughly 1 1/2" with one positioning of the jig. Consistency of the hole spacing is more important than absolute position. Moving the jig for each hole compounds the errors that you make in laying out the hole location. Is this possible?
Ben B on Nov 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: How deep? If you're not drilling more than a half an inch I would get the adjustable shelving jig that Rockler sells. Other wise you will be moving this jig often.
May a person just purchase a self entering jig #49221 with drill stop collar for 1/2” dowels?
