Rockler's Complete Dovetail Jig with Dovetail Jig Dust Collector Combo
Rockler Dovetail Jig:
Cutting beautiful through and half-blind dovetails is fast and easy with our new and improved dovetail jig! Rockler's exclusive one-piece stop gives you the perfect offset every time for dead-on dovetailing accuracy. And our new preset template guide allows for quick initial setup for 1/2" to 3/4" thick stock. Jig will cut half-blind dovetailed joints from 1/2" to 1-1/8" thick and full through dovetails from 3/8" to 3/4" thick. Accommodates stock up to 11" wide. Requires router with 1/2" collet.

Features:

  • 8mm diameter bits are 25% larger than typical 1/4" bits, reduce chatter and fit all existing Rockler dovetail jigs
  • Preset template and fence locations clearly marked for standard thickness stock
  • Clamping bars include abrasive surface to grip stock and prevent slipping
  • Depth gauge on template for setting dovetail bit height for half-blind joints

Rockler Dovetail Jig Dust Collector:

You don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get dust collection with a dovetail jig. Our revolutionary new dust collector eliminates virtually all the dust created when cutting dovetails. It easily attaches to Rockler's Dovetail Jig and a shop vacuum or dust collection system to provide you with a clean cutting area and safe working conditions.

Features:

  • Easily attaches to Rockler's dovetail jigs
  • Built-in 2-1/4" port fits most shop vac hoses (not included)
  • Sliding baffle directs the dust collection to where the dovetails are being cut
  • Sweep brush adjusts to provide a complete seal for stock thicknesses of 1/2" up to 1-1/8"
  • Contains the dust while allowing the bit to travel through without damage
  • Two extra long 4" knob posts make adding your dust collector shroud easy

Nice
Take your time to set up and it makes beautiful dovetails. Set up takes awhile but instructions are good. Set it and forget it. One thing I learned the hard way is a 3/4” wood is not created equal. Definitely use a strap of the wood you are using. I my case I used cheap pine to set it up to find out the hickory was 1/16th thicker. It will show in your joints. It is that precise. Vacuum attachment is awesome. Works great. Had a lot over fun with it. Can’t wait to do the next project

I purchased this item with no experience in dovetail joinery (my kit included the dust collector - I did leave a review for that item separately). I was able to unbox, set up, and create my first dovetail joint within an hour (not including prepping the stock). The instructions could be somewhat better, but given attention to detail, this jig gave me quality joints very quickly. Very few difficulties.

A great buy for the money.
Much easier to set up than my old jig.

Faster than my old jig because of the cam clamps.

The dust collector is a blessing. My shop is much cleaner and my work proceeds faster because I don't have to clean after each dovetail set.

As I am making 24 drawers with each corner dovetailed, this jig is definitely increasing my throughput.

I am very pleased and satisfied with this jig.

Great jig
While it has a bit of a learning curve, once you get some practice with scrap/etc., it's a very handy jig to have around. I did lose one of the springs when adjusting it, and Rockler responded in quick fashion to replace, gratis. It's not a Leigh, but it's also in a far lower price class. I'm sure one of these days I'll finally make the jump up, but for now I have no real reason to as this does everything I ask of it.

It works like it supposed to work.
I almost didn't buy the Rockler Dovetail Jig because of some of the reviews. I have always had great service and quality from Rockler. I relied on that history and placed the order. Less than 1 hour after removing the jig from the packing box we were making drawers with great results. The jig performs as it should, producing the results I expect. It gets 5 stars from me.

Great ig, but the dust collector gets in the way
Overall a great, solid jig. The templates work well with the machine and bits and, with a little practice, you’re off and running with some nicely finished
dovetails. BUT a major design flaw is, once you install the dust collector, you can no longer access the adjustable L-shaped stop with a screw driver. You have to disassemble it just to turn a screw. Additionally that L-shaped stop is plastic which is subject to flexing. That critical part should be metal.

Good router unit
Dovetail unit works well. Dust collector attachment slows down the setup process since it has to be removed to make adjustments. Other than that, very happy with unit.

Figured it out, nice results
2nd time doing dovetails, so expected some difficulty, but....kept the instructions opened up, followed the procedures and made some beautiful work. If you follow the instructions, use your brain and don't expect the jig to do the work for you, you will do good. Also, love the dust collector. It grabs 98% of the dust so you can see what you're doing... unlike an old Craftsman jig I used that is like trying to see thru a dust storm. I also like the brush on the dust attachment; while your vacuum system is still running, remove the boards and wipe any residual dust caught in the end cuts and/or wood peelings away and it's gonzo....and your pieces are ready for assembly.

It does not work with Ryobi routers without additional adapters. Once I got everything connected it does work.

Total noob at woodworking here. I'm trying to figure out what parts go with what other parts. What I have is a router and a router table. What do I need to buy to ultimately make the cool isoloc wave, clover, etc joints (after lots of practice)? I wanted to use the table router with RTJ400 but it looks like that doesn't work with the fancy templates. It looks like I need the DR Pro jig and the templates (sold separately, of course). I went to a Rockler store, but the guy I talked to kind of blew me off.

BEST ANSWER: Hi Linda,

It's been nearly 2 years since I upgraded to the Leigh Jig system. When I purchased my system, they provided very thorough instructions in both print and video formats. If this is your first dovetail jig system, you're walking right to the Rolls-Royce of them all (in my opinion). Leigh has some unique features incorporated into their system that can make dovetailing a much more satisfying experience for beginners and professionals alike. Dovetail jigs are primarily designed for hand held use only. One should have a fair amount of experience operating, maintaining and caring for a hand held router before attempting dovetail routing. I won't assume your experience level, and only mention it for the sake of safety. I have the D4R system which will accept the unique templates you have interest in. I happen to own the "clover" template, but have yet to use it. Leigh seems to be good about giving complete information about all necessary bits and guide bushings when purchasing their accessories. Whatever brand of jig you ultimately land on, this is a craft that will take some practice and patience to master, but it's well worth it. There is no substitute for a tight ffitting drawer joint that could out live your grandchildren! Hope this helped. Remember, safety first.

Kevin
Which two templates are included? Can I do through and half-blind dovetails (as well as box joints) right out of the box, or will I need additional templates?
David S on Feb 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This jig is not recommended for box joints. It includes templates for doing half blind dovetails and through dovetails.
Anyone have an issue while doing through dovetails with the interaction between bit and guide bushing? There is no physical way to set the cut depth correctly. The bit always digs into the guide bushing, for 1/2 stock material
BreckBeard B on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't know about yours, but mine didn't come with any instructions at all. I'm having the same issues (plus some... new to this tool). In my first attempt, I've now damaged one of the templates, and probably a router bit. Some simple instructions would have been very appreciated.
Can this jig cut rabbitted dovetails?
Scott E on May 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Half blinds and through I've done
What router would you recommend with this jig?
David H on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't matter what router you use. Choose one that is in your price range and has the features you want. Personally, I prefer a plunge router. I currently has a Dewalt and a Skil. I prefer the Dewalt, but it is also pricey.
Are replacement templates available?
FRANK R on Aug 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes...you can buy the replacement through Rockler.
Do I need a guide bushing router plate?
Gerry on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My experience was that the guide bushing provided with the dovetail jig fit very nicely on the standard plate on the bottom of my Porter Cable router.
