Does the perfect dovetail jig exist?
I am new to this forum so I don’t know if this subject has been covered in the past.
I am looking for the perfect dovetail jig and I don’t know if it exists. I have been looking at 4; The Leigh, The Keller Jig (16″), The Porter Cable 24″ Omni Jig, and the Incra 16″ Ultra Jig. I have been very patient and taken my time researching them. I have purchased owners manuals for each and read them from cover to cover.
After all of this, I still don’t know which way to go. I don’t see myself making small things like jewelry boxes or trinket boxes. I will probably be making medium to large size projects.
Each jig has its good and bad points. They all do things differently. The Keller can only do through dovetails, where as the others offer more types of joints. Although I am not flush, price is not an issue. I like my tools and quality is very important to me.
Would any one care to comment on their experiences with any of the above jigs? Maybe someone has worked with a couple of them.
Thank you for your input.
