• Make beautiful house signs with the USA's No.1 sign making system
• Rout horizontal signs 914mm in length with no limit on height

Newly updated, the Sign Crafter now allows the user to rout signs up to 914mm in length with no limit on height as the included low profile C clamps give unrestricted clamping. The frame has been redesigned making it easier to assemble and to sit flat on the work for greater router support. The templates produce letters and numbers 63mm in height and are self spacing so there is no need for difficult layout calculations.

The set includes two each of all letters and numbers with a further two extra of A, E and I to prevent you having to re-arrange your letters mid rout. This system comes with its own universal sub-base that will fit any router. The 15.9mm guide bush has a metal nose for extra durability. This set comprises 80 letter and number templates, two C clamps, base plate, guide bush and 9.5mm (3/8") diameter TCT router cutter on a 1/4" shank.

    Quite pleased with this , takes a bit of practice to get it looking good .The centre pins are not a lot of good because they haven't been machined concentrically end to end which defeats the purpose of them . I lined it up by eye . Apart from that it works okay .

    Nice piece of kit but the router base plate supplied dose not fit my Metabo router therefore I have had to drill holes in my router base to match and get pan head screws and nuts to suit.

    As with most purchases, this arrived the next day - very good service. I was not so happy with this piece of kit. The DVD would not run on my computer(s) and when I visited milescraft website I could not view the video there either. I thought the plastic letters/numbers were a bit flimsy and poorly finished, causing the bush to run off on some characters. Sandpapering around the inside edges eventually did the trick. With a bit more practice I hope to get better results but initially I am a little disappointed with the item.

    I'm actually really pleased with this. I think the dvd is more geared towards the sign pro as this arrived with 1 bush and only capital letters. Either way it's so easy to use and to get a idea of what my first sign looks like check out Made By Rick on Facebook. Quick delivery and first class service from Rutlands.

    Extraordinary value - get it while you can at this price. Comes with two full sets of characters in heavy duty plastic (these as stick on stencils would cost you that). Add in a heavy duty universal base (more than cost of entire kit from some manufacturers), indexing tools, and two robust aluminium G clamps - and you have saved loads of money. Cut through stick on transparent sheet to produce stencils. Only practical limitations are letter size and font. But you would need a cad cam machine or a spirograph with lots more skill to get that.

    A good product and a very useful video. Could be improved by the availability of a 1/4' shank cutter but easily available from other sources.

    A great piece if kit for the money my advice is to watch the video first unless you are an experienced 'router'. My first sign 'Rose Cottage' had me using the long joined version (clamped in the centre) so it is essential that the 2 support bridges are used and slid around whilst cutting otherwise the rail/bars spread, the letters fall out and a disaster can ensue. Follow the video & logic and the kit works really well - clockwise cutting as advised

    This jig was bought to make a one off set of signs for a friend's business. They were so well received that I seem to spend most of my time making signs for other people. I agree with the other reviewer that it takes practice to use sucessfully but I have never had a problem with the clamping system. A second router cutter would be nice but the set of five replacement cutters have different profiles of cutter which makes the signs all the more interesting.

    Decent product. You will need a bit of practice before you get it right so keep a few bits of scrap wood handy. Bit cheap supplying just 1 bit with the set. you will need to buy a smaller bit to use the lower case letters template. The clamps that come with this set to keep the jig fixed are close to useless and a bit of a mickey take. G clamps have solved that problem though. All in all a decent jig. I would recommend buying the more expensive sign crafter as the clamps look better designed.
