Porter-Cable Dovetail Jig settings
I have recently bought a Porter-Cable 4216 Dovetail Jig. The manual states that the jig depth measure should be set 3/8 inch below the template (in its lowest position). I can’t understand this as the template is approx. 1/4 inch thick and I would have expected the depth measure should be set to around 1/4 inch to compensate for the thickness of the template. At 3/8 inch, the dovetails I tested were proud by about the difference. Am I doing something wrong or have the templates on this unit been made thinner but the manual not updated??
