This package combines the easy clamping action of the 50'' Bora NGX Clamping Straight Edge Guide with the precise dado-cutting capabilities of our Perfect Fit Dado Jig. With just two passes along the included guide, the Perfect Fit Dado Jig lets you rout precise dados and grooves at any increment from 1/4'' to 1'' wide. Since it uses a scrap of your actual material for setup, the fit is spot-on, every time. Just rout the first shoulder with the jig in the ''closed'' position, then rout the second shoulder with the jig in the ''open'' position. The result is a tailor-cut dado that fits like no other. Once the jig is set, the stops make it easy to return to the ''open'' position so you can machine as many dados as you like for that thickness. No need to buy undersized plywood bits, or bits for other odd thicknesses—your dados can fit any thickness within the range (19/64'' for example) using standard 1/4'', 3/8'' or 1/2'' straight bits. Not only do you get easy operation and a perfect fit, you also get an integral dust port that lets you hoover up the mess before it ever hits the floor.

Features:

  • Perfect for plywood that's thinner than the nominal thickness, and for lumber that's been planed to a non-standard thickness
  • Uses a scrap of your actual material to set cutting widths for a precision fit
  • Built-in dust port provides point source dust collection
  • Knurled knobs act as stops, making it easy to return to the ''open'' position for cutting multiple dados of the same width
  • Cuts dadoes from 1/4'' to 1'' wide
  • Made from durable, smooth-sliding glass-reinforced plastic
  • Works with 1/4'', 3/8'' or 1/2'' diameter straight router bits (not for use with undersize bits)
  • Includes removable baseplate with pre-drilled hole patterns to fit popular routers (see list at bottom)
