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.

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.

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.
