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

A little time to set it up initially but after that it works great. It makes dovetails like a pro. The vac system also works good. Very little saw dirt to cleanup.

Works very good
I am fairly new to woodworking and just used this jig. After sending a little time setting it up I just made 8 drawers and they came out great. The dust collector is a bit cumbersome but works good. I am very happy with it.

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.
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.

Leigh D4R Pro 24
Leigh D4R Pro 24" Dovetail Jig w/Accessory Kit
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.
Good Afternoon, several of the comments suggest that this is not compatible with certain routers (Bosch was listed specifically). Has anyone out there been able to confirm this? I am wanting to get the Bosch 1617 combo but do not want to get something that will not work with this kit. Also, I see it comes with a 1/2" to 8mm collet adapter, is this all I need to use these bits on the router I choose? Thank you, Drew
Andrew H on Feb 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not sure. I had a Dewalt router I used with it and it worked great.
What router would you recommend with this jig?
David H on Feb 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have a Bosch router so I had to buy the guide bushing plate to use the Rockler jig. It works fine that way. The Porter Cable 690 series doesn’t need the guide bushing plate but as David stated you can use about any router

Does this jig support the Festool OF 1010 EBQ router?
Jan H on Apr 23, 2019

Will the 8mm shank bits fit in a Makita 1/4" shank cordless router, or with the router's optional 3/8" collet? Thanks.
William H on Sep 7, 2019

Are replacement templates available?

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.

one review said need adapter for Ryobi router ,have Ryobi with 1/2" collet . do I still need adapter? thanks tom
tom z on Feb 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No Tom the jig comes with everything you need. It is a great jig.
I am having trouble keeping the dovetail bit secure in the router. I have tried three different routers, cleaning the bit shank and the collet. Could it be that the guide bushing is preventing proper seating of the bit in the collet? I don’t have trouble using the router for other applications only with the dovetail jig. I have already destroyed one bit!
Barry R on Jul 10, 2019
,Is there a issue of using my router and router bushings and bits, instead of using the bits and router bushings that come with the Jig?

Is there a list as to what routers this will fit?
