Leigh B975 Box Joint and Beehive Jig

Rating:
82% of 100

This simple, affordable jig makes light work of 1/2'' and 3/4'' box joints—ideal for making anything from boxes and drawers to beehive ''supers.'' Leigh's elliptical e10 bushing lets you adjust the fit by as little as 0.001'' for tight joints that slide together with a whisper. The flip stops provide the correct offset for the pins and sockets—just flip the stop open to go from routing sockets to routing pins. The comb template is attached to a shop-made beam, which can be made out of 2 pieces of 3/4'' MDF glued together, or a length of 2x4 jointed square.


Features:

  • Make fast, accurate 1/2'' and 3/4'' finger joints on boards from 1-7/16'' to 17-13/16'' wide
  • Useful for anything from boxes and drawers to casework for small furniture pieces
  • May be used with handheld or table-mounted routers (table-mounting requires an insert that accepts a standard 1-3/8'' guide bushing)
  • Elliptical e10 guide bushing lets you adjust the fit by as little as 0.001''
  • Includes glass-reinforced nylon template, e10 guide bushing, stops, 1/2'' straight bit, cams (not pictured) for routing wider boards, manual, and instructional DVD

I like it very much
Made 6 honey supers using default setting. No adjustment needed. Be careful not to bump the stop. I like it better than the shop made table saw jigs I've been using. Going to make some draws next.
Sensitive to rough handling. But I like it better than the shop made table saw jigs I've been using.

Box Joints
Bought this to try out box joints. I have been cutting dovetails on a couple of jigs (Rockler, Leigh and Porter Cable) and thought that it was time for something different. It took a half hour to get it set up per the instructions and less than 15 minutes to get it adjusted and cut the box joints for the first drawer. This jig is simple to use, easy to adjust and very accurate. Highly recommended.

Jig is fine....User needs brakes...
Item arrived as described, unfortunately I did not do enough homework on my project....not Jigs fault at all.

Building toys chest for my grandsons [4] and wanted to do box joints on all corners...36" front and back 24" on the sides.
Jig is made for 17" of sockets and pins. And my new router table has a 1/4" collet and under powered for the task...Jig looks great just not for this project.

Amateur / newbie mistake....live and learn.

I like the way your work piece turns out once you get it figured out but I don't care for how you have to fasten your work piece it's a little awkward to try to do with one person you almost need to I have figured out an easier way of doing it but I think it could be simplified but overall I do like the outcome of the jig on your work piece

makes a very precise joint, although a little slow when you have a lot of drawers to make.

Would have been great, except for one thing.
The inside diameter of the collar was warped a little. First use on the pin the bit caught the collar and the collar shattered and gouged into the plastic jig. The two other pins looked good though.

What insert would I need for a Bosch router table?
Larry H on Jun 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The insert would have to accommodate the rub collar that comes with the jig That collar is the most important part of the whole setup. It has an index that you turn to increase or decrease the finger tightness.
The system works very well with the boards clamped in a vice and the jig clamped on the board.ter
